You and your fair weather friends, it's all fake and pretend...*

photos by Tom b.

dress: 30's silk chiffon
slip: vintage
shoes: 30's oxfords
sweater: Anthropologie
locket: Free People
purse: vintage Coach
listening to: The Caesars - Strawberry Weed "Boo Boo Goo Go0"

After having a nice Easter lunch on Sunday afternoon Tom and I stopped by what we'd heard was an abandoned farm to have a look around. It looks so sunny and nice out doesn't it? Well, looks can be deceiving. I had to take my big winter coat off to snap these photos. You can (kind of) see that I'm all bundled up in the shadow photos. It turned out the farm is abandoned and I want to go back out there once it's warmer to take more photos.

+ A huge thank you to the ladies over at ModCloth for featuring this post as their daily Style Inspiration!

really nice photos! i know all about snapping pictures in the freezing cold and trying to make viewers believe its toasty warm! :P
that shadow picture is cool!

abandoned farms creep me out a little bit . its weird to think that people just up and left!

It does look a bit windy, doesn't it. What a beautiful place! So glad you sacrificed some warmth and suffered the cold for a few moments so we could all admire the lovely outfit inspiration (and imitate those of us lucky enough to be warm at the moment!)
