Nature Trail

Necklace - Made from an old belt buckle
Skirt - Jumble sale
Belt - Charity shop
Shoes - River island sale, with changed laces

These photos are from a little nature walk I went on. I saw these strange looking bugs everywhere, they didn't seem to mind having their picture taken, I looked them up and I think they are called red froghoppers, which is a pretty brilliant name I think. Also sorry for my lack of posts, since last week I've been to the Grace Kelly exhibition at the V&A, which was interesting.  I enjoyed learning that the costumes she wore in High Society were given to her as a gift from the studios and made up part of her wedding trousseau. Apparently this rarely ever happened, studios usually kept the costumes. On Saturday I attended a friend's wedding, it was a beautiful day but I forgot to take any photos, hopefully I can unearth someone elses. I originally went shopping for a new (vintage) dress to wear but then I thought, why not wear something I already have, since I'm hardly short on dresses. The one I chose is a long standing favourite that I also wore for my 22nd birthday. On a different note, I will be going away on 27th July for about a month, I'm very excited! I will be visiting San Francisco, L.A, Las Vegas, Yosemite and various other places. If anyone has any tips or recommendations on places to see/things to do, I'd love to hear them.
