top: Victorian tenerife lace corset cover
skirt: 50s pleated skirt
shoes: vintage Ferragamo
purse: vintage John Romain
hat: vintage felt cloche
*listening to: Richard Hell and the Voidoids "Blank Generation"

Yesterday Tom and I went to Longs Park to walk around the pond and watch the geese. There were lots of adorable little goslings that I couldn't help but stalk. Once I got close enough mama goose did that creepy head-down, tongue-out hissing thing at me and took the babies into the water. It was such a beautiful day. The kind of day when the sun is just right and the breeze is just right and you don't want to go inside.
