i felt the earth beneath my feet

*Warning* Picture heavy post. :) (No particular order either.)

In honour of the end of July, here is a collection of photos that never found their way into outfit posts, but that I think are lovely in their own right. Of course, these were all taken in July.

Enjoy!

every cloud has a silver lining

















H&M Garden Collection dress. Gap vest. Unknown socks. Geox flats. Gifted jewelry except elephant ring which is from Aldo. Vintage belt. Michael Kors watch.

This outfit makes me think of that old saying, "every cloud has a silver lining." I remember first hearing it in some cheesy pre-teen book. At the time I never thought much about what it meant, or if it had any meaning at all, but now I think it's a saying that we should all apply to our lives. Life never goes as planned, and there will always be moments that stop us in our tracks, but we cannot lose the hope that there is something better not far along. Even during the most stormiest of days, there should still be hope that a ray of light will peak out.
Therefore, this dress with all it's frills, and my silver vest and socks make me feel like I'm a cloud, drifting along peacefully.
(When I was little I used to dream about being able to sit on a cloud and read books. I still think that if it was possible to do that, it would be really incredible. But unfortunately science puts a stopper to that dream.)

tutu



















American Apparel skirt and bike shorts. Keds. Gap tee. Gifted bag from Holt Renfrew. Gifted cross. Ray Ban Wayfarers.

I think this skirt is the closest that I will ever come to wearing a tutu. I've never worn a real tutu, not for a dance show (I never did dance that required tutu's, only traditional Lithuanian clothes), not for halloween, and definitely not when I played dress-up with my friends. Therefore, when I bought this skirt last summer, it was an incredibly happy day. This skirt makes me want to prance and twirl around. It's definitely one of the "fun" articles of clothing in my closet.

the lazy day















Mango tank. Unknown skirt. Aldo shoes and earrings and blue tooth necklace. Other necklaces are gifted. Vintage scarf worn as headband. Gifted rings.

This was my lazy day outfit. Those are always fun, aren't they?
I got into the whole scarf as headband craze and I think it's incredible. This gorgeous little scarf has never been the right size for me to wear as a scarf, but as a headband, it's perfect. Unfortunately you can't see the pretty little elephants embroidered into the silk.

Nothing much to say about this outfit, but I do have to say, WHERE HAS JULY GONE??? Seriously. I'm sitting here shocked because soon it's going to be August, and I'll need to start my back to school shopping. Oh wow!

What have you all been doing this summer?
