golden hour






















That's my mom & dad, aren't they cute?

dress  moon collection c/o modcloth
necklace  the vamoose
fascinator  vintage from bohemian bisoux vintage
purse  vintage from penny farthing
heels  vintage

On Sunday I traveled up north with Lauren to visit my family and celebrate the joint birthday of my grandma and grandpa. My dad made delicious pizzas from scratch and we bombarded poor Lauren with many goofy family stories. A beautiful deer made an appearance and watched us eat our dinner on the other side of the fence (my parents live next to a state park so it's basically a constant wildlife show out there). We shot these photos after everyone else had gone home and the light was just beginning to have that perfect golden hue. A fitting way to end an incredibly lovely day.

Such gorgeous light. I love your floral head piece too! Your bare legs and sleeveless dress is making me quietly hopeful I might stumble into some summer weather next week :)

It's really cool that both of your grandparents have the same birthday! Also, I love all of your vintage shoes. All of them. Including these!
