Outfit #7: Forest Wandering

Some days the forest just begs to be explored.

Outfit #7: Forest Wandering

I love pictures of winter turning into spring - melting snow, dead branches coming back to life, the first hints of flowers....

The day I took these pictures was just insanely gorgeous! The sun was shining, it was warm but not too warm... just perfect.

I love this hairclip! I got in on sale at when I was ordering something else and I'm so glad I did. The chains really add a hint of medieval flair somehow :).

This is the bookbag I use most often - there's a picture of one of my favorite paintings, Waterhouse's "The Lady of Shalott" in the little nametag slot and two buttons, one for The Strand bookstore in NYC and the other one a picture of Byron that says "The best heroes are Byronic", which is, of course, true :P.

Only needed a light-ish sweater! Fantastic :).

I sadly didn't have time to set up any father away shots this time, so just a bunch of closeups. This was a day for exploring outside! :).

Outfit #6: Modern Witch

This was an outfit I wore to my "Witchcraft in Comparative Perspectives" class... which, yes, is as awesome as it sounds :P.

Outfit #6: Modern Witch

I absolutely love Waterhouse's artwork and "The Magic Circle", shown here, is one of my favorite pieces of his.

I love how versatile this dress is! You can dress it up or down so easily. Velvet blazers are pretty much my favorite things in the world and the moonstone necklace is also one of my all time favorites.

The moonstone ring was a gift from one of my very best friends and the other ring says "witch faerie" on it, a bit of an inside joke from my folklore department but one I feel expresses me pretty well really :P.

Lovely moonstone earrings and black earrings I wear with everything.

You can really see the necklaces here! The other necklace is literally called, no joke, the "witch fairy" necklace. My mom got it for me for Christmas and left it in the bag it came in so that I could see the title and flip out :P. She's riding a broom made out of a tree branch! I love how red my hair looks in this picture... when the light hits it just right it's awesome :P.

So yes, after this I went off to discuss witchcraft in the early modern period - I believe I was dressed quite appropriately!

Etsy Treasury: A Scrappy Little Bird Waiting for Spring

A new etsy treasury! This one was inspired by fabric scraps, feathers, wool, odd, sparkly trinkets, scraps of sunlight, and a touch of magic... the collection of a scrappy little bird waiting for spring :).

As before, please click on the image to see the whole thing :).
