Scottish Prairie

I had such an incredible adventure today with my dearest Bretton and Maria. The quality of light in these pictures is positively surreal. I barely had to edit them to achieve this pseudo Victorian/early American mood. I found this 1970s vintage sun dress at my favourite vintage emporium and I can't express my obsession with it. I used a plain, cheap white dress from H&M as a slip (a way better option, if you ask me) so that it wasn't quite so riskily sheer. I haven't done my hair like this in a while but I think it's a trend I'm gonna need to get into again.

Boy, if this beautiful countryside (located right in the center of Edinburgh) doesn't convince one to visit this city...I just don't know what will. I salute you, Bonnie Scotland.



Dress/Sunglasses: Armstrong's Vintage Emporium; Sandals: UO; Cardigan: Express; Belt: H&M; Hair clip: made by me :D ; Necklace: discovered randomly in my basement; Octopus Ring: Modcloth

Remember to check out Maria at Draft of Vintage for her stellar kin-post to this one!
