where the wild things are

I was fortunate to grow up in a rural area where exploring forests was a big part of my childhood. I loved finding new trees to climb and new caves to navigate. Now that I live in a city, exploring forests is not a part of my everyday life. So when I feel the desire to be amongst trees and birds and little woodland creatures, I seek out the little bits of forest that I can find. It always makes me feel a bit like a curious child again.

I've had this dress for a few years now and I only pull it out during the warmest summer days, as it is so light. I truly love this little vintage piece and count it as one of my favourite items. I love the simplicity of the design and pattern. It reminds me a bit of a daisy.

So excited that it's Friday! This has been a looong week for me at work, so I'm ready to relax, get some housework done, and see the people I love!

Happy weekend! <3 Lo
