Nature Girl (Get it? "Nature Boy," David, yeah.)

"The greatest thing, you'll ever learn,
is just to love, and be loved in return."

Rustic vintage dress: Thrifted in Ashtabula, OH
Cranberry cardigan: Thrifted
Cognac ankle boots: Thrifted
Big chocolate bag: Christystudio on Etsy

Sorry I didn't get the bag in there properly! This is one of the best purses I've ever had, it's SO durable, holds all of my things, and was beautifully made. It's called "the Meredith" bag. Pretty name, no?

Stock photo from her shop.

I actually intended to take photos somewhere else today, but couldn't because of the rain, rats! But I have to admit I love it when it rains. I like everything about a good rain - the earthy smell, the sounds of it against the window, the way it saturates and amplifies the colors of everything. So today's outfit is inspired by a drenched landscape and just nature in general. I realized later that this inspiration found its way into my several things on my wishlist, too! Like...

Ok, no more Etsy posts for awhile! I'm actually going to try out something I'd like to do as a weekly feature tomorrow, so we'll see how that goes. Also, I'm toying with the idea of a giveaway (like Keiko Lynn's!) at the end of June...what should I give away? :D
