Every day is an adventure... dress accordingly!

Doe, a deer. A female deer.

Like the delicate framework of handmade antique lace, the doe is a fascinating, gentle creature.

Sure, the original judgement upon these fine creatures by many drivers and their mauled vehicles is that they have horrid peripheral vision. Hunters see these fine ladies as nothing but a sweet piece of venison, and less desirable due to their general lack of decorative trophy horns like their male counterparts, the bucks.

Yet, they are sensitive and strong, as they tirelessly care for their fawn and travel in packs with other does, while looking out for each other.

I would like to think that if they did sport a wild headdress, it would depict these characteristics of strength, fragility, grace and gentility as they constantly move throughout the unpredictable wilderness, handling whatever they may come across with style and finesse.

That will bring us back to DO. 😉

(I’m rocking an antique lace top, old skirt by Sunny Leigh, Urban Outfitters footless lace tights, Steve Madden pony hair shoes, H&M collar, antique marcasite rings and a DIY headdress)

Sartorial Summation

It’s hard to realize how much your brain absorbs and processes. I concoct these ensembles daily without much thought, but often wonder where the hell in depths of my subconscious these visions come from and why it all makes sense.

Despite having worked in two of them many years ago, I detest indoor gyms (with the sole exception of my hot yoga spot). In lieu of a common meat market, I absolutely adore being outside in the fresh air, with the breeze hitting my face as I run – almost like a motivating gift from Mother Nature for showing up to your workout. Sneakers pound uneven trails that not only add resistance but also, and better yet, picturesque scenery. 

So, what do you get when you add a few honking Canadian geese, pebbled shores and the coarse, beauteous bark of an uprooted tree, peppered with the nautical inspiration of the bodies of water and the living creatures you pass by?
