Style: Enchanted forest


This skirt is so dreamy. I did another post about it almost exactly one year and one week ago, which is weird, but then it isn't - it's the perfect late spring/early summer skirt. 
Looking back at a post I did over a year ago makes me cringe a little bit: the photos are pretty bad, and I hadn't found the right format for my photos yet - what's with the strange sizing I did?

But I guess it just means that there has been some progress, and that's definitely a good thing. I found out along the way that traditional posing is not my strong suit - I simply can't do it. It looks very awkward and posy, and you can tell that I don't have fun. Doing these little shoots a bit differently is definitely working for me, and I love doing them! The most important props are, of course, my dogs. Today I got a special treat: Bear made an appearance! He is very camera-shy, so I guess the enchanted forest enchanted him and made him brave? Yes, let's go with that. ;-) 

Here he is! Peeking out from behind the ferns. Such a sweetheart.


T-shirt: Joe Fresh (very old); skirt: etsy; shoes: American Eagle (old); necklace: so old, I can't remember where I got it from (sorry!)

  10. Ferns are my absolute favorite plant, I just can't seem to keep them alive. They look so magical in your Forrest. I adore the skirt, and bear too :). Looking back at my first few months of blogging definitely makes me cringe. I want to go back and edit, but I don't because like you said, it's nice to see progress. Xo
