Outfit: Walk with Me

I don’t know if you recall, but one of the things I was excited about in my new town was this “enchanted forest” of a park that was tucked up in one corner of downtown.  Last week, I finally had time to take some pictures there, and boy, I really love how they came out!  The park features a winding, tree-canopied path which runs around a clearing that the local theater troupe uses for its summer productions.  This path abounds with overgrown foliage and art installations alike–though it’s only a block square, it feels like something I could get lost in!  Right behind old houses, natural areas like this one are my favorite places to shoot at.  There’s so much to interact with that I almost forget I’m supposed to be taking pictures of myself.

I was really excited to wear this new headband–I bought it while I was at Pierogi Fest in in Whiting, Indiana.  I went with a few friends last weekend and gorged myself on homemade pierogis and sarsaparilla, and I even entered a polka contest with one of my pals.  (We lost within seconds.)  While we ambled up and down the festival route, I found a woman selling handmade wire headbands for $5 a pop.  Since these normally run about $15 on ModCloth, I couldn’t pass them up and ended up taking home two.

Also, I think this post marks the first time I’ve worn a bracelet in a shoot.  I have a really hard time finding bracelets that fit, but this one, which belonged to my mom, is just right.  If anyone knows of a good place to find small bracelets (and rings, for that matter), please let me know!

  1. Wow! The Enchanted Forest does indeed look enchanted! What a great photo location. Love your dress and headband. I can’t believe it was only $5! I know I paid close to $15 for mine, sigh. Your mom’s bracelet is gorgeous, too. It’s funny, the only bracelet I have that fits me is a little gold one that’s my mom’s as well. I also love that you entered a polka contest – that is too awesome!

    Have Clothes, Will Travel


    1. Thank you very much! This was such a gorgeous place to shoot, and I’m tempted to come here every time! Have you ever worn your mom’s bracelet in a blog post? I’d really like to see it!


  2. Hi! Just have to leave a comment… found you through the modcloth gallery and I am loving your personal style and the lovely quality of your photographs. So glad I clicked over to your blog! 🙂


  3. Pierogi Fest? The tiny little Babcia inside of me is super jealous right now. Cute location and outfit! What kind of camera do you use? I’m saving up to finally buy a nice one! Your photos always come out beautifully.


    1. I can’t lie, Pierogi Fest was a little bit like how I imagine heaven to be. I use a Nikon D3300, and I love it! However, my photographer uncle uses a Canon, so I guess take my advice with a grain of salt!


  4. Wow, that forest is beautiful! What a great location for photography! The photos are stunning. You look really lovely with all that green around you, and that dress is super cute!
    Beautiful as always ❤


I'd love to hear from you!
