Outfit: The latest flowers


It was my dream ever since it's gotten warm this year, to have a photoshoot with lots and lots of colorful flowers. Somehow that never happened during the spring and summer but I'm so glad it did now. Even though we only caught the last light of the day and the colours were already less saturated, it makes me happy that we grabbed these last, warm hues of summer before we head into autumn. This lovely patch of simple flowers are grown by Bartek's granny --along with some cucumbers and tomatoes which we cleverly kept out of frame.

I'm wearing an old dress that I made, found blouse, sweater, old oxford flats and a thrifted vintage backpack.


The dress I'm wearing is one of the first things I've ever sewn and still one of my favorites. It has its flaws --and lots of them! --but it is made out of a magical fabric (vintage printed upholstery-weight jacquard) and I just keep on loving it. I actually like it better here styled with a sweater on top, as it makes the whole outfit more toned down. I find that without the solid colour close to my face, it's a bit too cutesy for my current cropped hair. This hair makes me look much more like an adult than I'm used to, and I keep forgetting about it and wearing things suitable for 'younger' or more yin/softer me which keep clashing with my current appearance. I should make a post about it under the 'style musings' label because there's a lot to be said about how hair changes one's whole look, pronouncing that yin or yang in our face and body. But that's a story for another time.
