Growing up, I was not only an avid camper but a pretty serious reader as well. Being outdoorsy and a bookworm may not seem to make much sense at first, but in fact they go hand in hand. Both are quiet and peaceful. Plus, where else can you loose yourself for hours and find a yourself in a new magical world so different from your every day life? One of my all time favorite books is "Bridge to Terabithia" where the two main characters are able to loose themselves (or find themselves) in the magical mystery of the woods. As much as I love an escape to the wilderness, it's important to stay warm. I was very thankful for the super cozy coat that I borrowed from Isla. It was the perfect thing for exploring the forest and finding my way over the bridge to my own Terabithia.

Beautiful pictures. I love your coat! The collar is perfect. Love your skirt, too. I'm the same way--I used to love camping and reading, but alas, my partner is a total homebody. I haven't gone camping in ages!

SoFashionistica :

It's always nice when you can go off to someplace quiet and comfortable where you can enjoy the luxuries of enjoying a good book and taking in all of the beautiful things that surround us. I am reading the book Wicked/Son of Witch book and I like to go off and read it by the water at the marina.

We read that book in school and I loved it so much. I love being out in the woods by myself reading or listening to music and just exploring.
Your plaid skirt is soo amazing and looks so great with that coat. Such an incredible combination :)

Hannah :

Such lovely photos! I definitely get the Bridge to Terabithia vibe. Although that book totally killed me. I must have forgot how traumatizing it was and went to see the movie a few years ago. I think I bawled for a good 30 minutes in the theater. Oof.
