what i wore: out in the woods

Thursday, April 05, 2012

the details
shirt - target
shorts - thrifted
shoes - Madoka c/o Blowfish
camera bag - Jo Totes
phone case - Amazon

First day this year wearing shorts! Yeeeeah! So exciting. Kevin and I popped over to my parents for the first cook out of the year and I spent some time wandering around the woods and gathering ferns to press in my notebook. I can't wait until all the leaves are back and it's green in the woods again. But I guess any day that I can wear shorts and a t-shirt and not be cold are good with me!
Hope you're having a great day!
xoxo

A random note; these picture and text are from last week when we apparently had some freak warm weather. It's back to being April appropriate weather and that stinks! I can't wait to get back to the weather where I can wear shorts!

    Yeah, same here in Portugal, it was so nice for a while there and now the temperatures dropped and it's been raining at times. Do not like!

  5. Aww you look so cute, Kaylah! :) As someone stated above, here in Portugal the weather has been behaving quite the same way... sometimes it's freaking hot and then it suddenly gets cold and starts raining! Today I was off to shoot some photos of a Spring outfit and I was surprised with how cold it was! such an awful weather! hopefully it will get better soon :)

  7. Great outfit, I especially love your camera bag! Shorts are pretty much all I've been able to wear for a few weeks. It's been in the low 80's pretty much everyday here in Nashville, TN. Hope warm weather comes your way soon!

    1. I plan on doing it a little later in Spring or in the summer when there are some more things to press. Right now, at least here, ferns are the only thing to press.

  14. What do you wear (if any) to keep the bugs away? Ticks are a huge issue 'round theses hurr parts. I also spend oodles of time wandering the woods, bees seem to be on the up & up this year due to our ever so weak "winter" - Not a huge fan of bees :/

    & How could I not mention the adorableness of your phone case :3

    1. We don't really have a tick problem here. I grew up in the middle of the woods and literally never saw a tick in my life until last year. So I don't really worry about them.

      We do have a HUGE mosquito issue though, or rather I do. They come to me first before anyone else even realizes they're out. I normally just spray on whatever is laying around, I haven't found anything that really works great for me. Mosquitoes seem to like me - bug spray or not!

    2. We are in the same boat as far as mosquitoes go. It must be our awesome blood ;) As far as you never even SEEING a tick, there are no words for how jealous I am.

  23. I would super love if you did a post about your pressing process, and how you go about preserving what you press! I tried it once, but none of my pressed flowers and leaves ever came out nice. >~<

  24. Lovely photos! :)

    I was just wondering if you go into the woods by yourself or have a friend with you? I would like to take some outfit photos in the woods, but I'm worried about getting kidnapped or something, lol. Any advice?
