what I wore : owl always love the beach

Wednesday, December 19, 2012

details
hat - thrifted
collar clips - ebay
belt - came with the dress
tights - amazon
shoes - c/o Oasap
camera bag - The Brooklyn c/o ONA

I was so happy to finally get my hands on this owl dress! The reviews on it are quite mixed which made me kind of skeptical but the second I tried it on I knew it was meant to be! The fit is spot on and despite the fact I don't collect owls as crazily as in the past, I can't resist an owl pattern. It's rather thin so it's definitely better suited to warmer weather but I'm the kind of person who buys something and is already putting it on as soon I hop in the car so there was no way it was hanging out on a hanger until summer time.

It's getting about that time of the year where the beach trash is starting to accumulate. No matter how I try I can't think of an way that doesn't sound completely horrible to say I'm really excited about that. OBVIOUSLY I wish people didn't litter, but they do and I can't do anything about it and I really love helping pick up the beach. I'm excited to start gathering and photographing things like I did last year (see here). This year I have some little projects I want to photograph in regards to picking up the beach trash, but more on that in another post!

  2. Nice outfit, I love owls :)
    I have country house near my hometown and there is a perfect little lake. Every year my family organizes with neighbours to clean the trash, and few weeks after, you can`t see the difference. I know how frustrated you are, so, good luck with your projects!

  5. Love the dress! I'm pretty crazy about owls these days. I would like to buy nice things from Modcloth but the customs duties to Finland make ordering clothes outside European Union quite expensive. :(

  16. I love all the little details in this outfit - the collar clips, the back of your tights, the cute little belt - and love than you photograph them! that's my biggest downfall with taking outfit photos...it's just me frolicking around. Can't wait for the beach post!

  21. Did you notice that from a ways away, the owls on your dress look anatomical heart-shaped? It's like literal owl love! I think that's pretty awesome : ]

    I put a pair of shoes from Oasap on my Christmas list, and my dad told me he got them for me haha. I'm so excited and I can't wait to rock them!!
