swan lake


I've worked near this lake for the past three summers and never once have I seen such a large accumulation of swans. It was honestly incredible. There must have been at least a hundred of them in the morning, yet after lunch there were none. It was a gorgeous sight though. I took a break from working to take pictures, and I wasn't the only one. Everyone who was passing this stretch of the lake stopped to look at the beautiful swans, those who were lucky to be carrying a camera on them were taking photos. I took so many, but I'm only going to post one today. I'll post more another day.

Pretty basic outfit. Decided to wear my AA U-neck dress since it's been taking a rest in my closet lately. But look at my socks!! Silver shimmery socks. Oh it's love!





















Wearing AA dress, vintage blouse and belt, unknown socks, Browns shoes and gifted necklace.

addhasldkaldjsk OOOH PRETTY SWANS. (That was super eloquent? YES, I know.)

But REALLY. You have, have, HAVE to post more. Please? Pretty please? Augh, sometimes I feel like swans are one of those beautiful creatures that shouldn't really even exist... (rainbows also make the list. btw.)

You look so adorable - your dress / shirt looks so soft...

Wow, indeed such a beautiful sight. Swans are, in my opinion, the most elegant creatures. Love the floral print of your dress and the flats.

Gorgeous! I thought the blouse was the dress at first so I was a little shocked by the split in the back. But then it all made sense ;)

What a cute print on that blouse! I love floral.

AND OH MY gosh, sometimes I am just astounded by nature--i.e. I LOVE moonlight esp. on a clear night! Those swans are no exception.

And thank you for your lovely, lovely compliment! :) And yeah, actually, I've recently decided I want to be a journalist. Or something. I was going to be doctor before--LOLWTFOMG right?! SO not for me, I finally decided!

Proceeding towards the giveaway, oh yeah!

Love your socks too, I just recently bought a pink pair and a blue pair... just waiting for enough sunshine to not freeze without more substantial leg coverage!
