the floral dance

(searching through an estate sale) 

(dress: re-run's, socks: target, everything else is either vintage or thrifted) 

   There is hint of chill in the air that I love so dearly, all around Kansas City. I walked to meet a friend for coffee this morning wrapped in a sweater... it was one of those mornings where I didn't feel like bringing my phone or my camera to document anything, just to simply be and talk. We ended later up trying to find a museum we read about in Swope Park, got lost on back roads, and explored bits of Loose Park and the rose garden there instead. 
   I am a huge fan of estate sales, so naturally I managed to find one within walking distance I had to venture to today. The house was dark, so compressed with antiques and "stuff" it was hard to keep my balance. I am rather glad I braved my way through the entire three-story house, because I picked up a vintage camera and some clothing for one dollar. I an so excited to find some film and shoot with this new find.


  1. Love this post! especially the picture with the big tree trunk

  4. estate sales sounds like fun :D cute socks ;)

  5. I love how you paired this dress with the socks! And I am a huge believer in estate sales- you can't beat them- beautiful things ( though it can be sort of sad) and sometimes the people running them can be a little stingy on the prices. But otherwise they are amazing! Alex

  6. Wow that dress is so pretty! And that garden is even more beautiful. Sometimes I think it is fun just to *be* in the moment rather than document it :).


  7. Sounds like a lovely day. Your socks are so cute and perfect with your dress :)

  8. SEND THAT CHILLY air to Texas! These photos are lovely. Its nice to have a chat without phones and cameras sometimes. <3
