the moral wardrobe: evening light

cg2 cg6cg3Today was hot, so-hot-you-can’t-breathe hot. But the evening light was beautiful, so I took my outfit photos then spent a few minutes photographing light through leaves, berries hidden on trees, and exuberant branches, heavy with new life.

May has been a busy month and it looks like the days aren’t slowing down. Daniel and I went to Appomattox to tour the Civil War museum yesterday. It takes a little over an hour to get there and we don’t have air conditioning in our car, but luckily the sky was overcast and the breeze never stopped blowing over the narrow country roads. The air here smells like greenery, onions, and honey when it’s warm.

This weekend I’m modeling for a local salon! Hopefully I’ll get some real photos to share with you this time (the fashion show photos were a bit of a disappointment).

Ethical choices are bolded below. Retailers taking steps to become more ethical are bolded in gray.

  • Top – very old
  • Skirt – vintage
  • Shoes – MIA
  • Necklace – J. Crew Factory

    Your elephant necklace makes me very happy. So does this line: “The air here smells like greenery, onions, and honey when it’s warm.”
