the details
dress - thrifted
pin - a gift from an awesome reader!
belt - thrifted
shoes -Neat c/o Blowfish

How amazing are these shoes?! They're not as delicate as they look. Underneath the lace is a layer of mesh so your toes aren't popping through and the survived a jot through the woods so they get an A+ in my book! I'm excited to wear them all summer long because they're comfortable and best of all, they're cool. I hate having sweaty feet!

ALSO, I found my first big(-ish) mushroom of the year! I AM SO EXCITED. There were a few more that had already begun to rot along side this one. I must have just been a day or so late in finding them. I cannot wait to get back and find more.

Well, I'm off to enjoy my day! Hope you're having a fabulous Thursday.
xoxo

  3. I was out for a walk today and I saw a mushroom, as I wandered on I saw more and more! I had never really thought about it before but it appears in australia mushrooms like autumn the best! At least in my area anyway heh :) This was a little pointless but I thought you might find it interesting :)

  29. Awesome frog picture! I actually just posted some pictures of a frog who's been living under a pot in the backyard. I was super happy to snap some pictures before he hopped away. I'm amazed this one stayed in your hand for the photo! Animals have a tendency to move at exactly the wrong moment in a picture-taking session... ; ]
