Spooky little girl

Don't forget to enter the Nobletown vintage giveaway below!

I would like to introduce you to one of my favorite places:
Earrings: Courtesy Noémiah Bijoux
Dress: H&M ($13)
Sweater: J.Crew outlet ($20)
It may sound odd to some that one of my favorite, most relaxing places is the local cemetery, but it is! This particular cemetery is just a few blocks from our apartment and I love walking through it on warm days. There was a warm breeze blowing off the ocean this evening, a perfect time for a stroll. Along the way I came across this great tree, when the wind blew, all the little pine cones shook and made the most amazing sound.

I felt like my long, black dress was very fitting for the somewhat somber surroundings. To add a little sparkle, I added these amazing feather and chain earrings from Noémiah Bijoux. I'm not usually an earrings person, but I love this pair. I've actually been wearing them a ton on the weekends, they go great with a simple jeans and tee-shirt ensemble. You should definitely check out Noémie's shop, she makes everything herself and has some great pieces!

Thank you all for the encouraging words yesterday.
life can get pretty rough at times, and I'm so thankful and appreciative
that I have the support of so many people! You all are amazing!

i love cemetaries too. i think why people are drawn to them is because they are 100% guaranteed to be quiet and peaceful. my mum & i use to walk through cemetaries all of the time when i was younger, i find them very interesting!

BerthaLey said...

I love the touch that the earrings give to the outfit. And the trees. :) Who would've thought that a cementery was so beautiful?

A-C said...

Everything about this outfit is awesome. The earrings, the silhouette, the hair, EVERYTHING! Also, that this is a great and calming place is not surprising. It looks beautiful and peaceful.

Kathyrine said...

I wouldn't want to be there at night though!
Your earrings are lovely!

have you ever heard "The Long Black Veil" by Johnny Cash? Because this post is seriously reminding me of that song.

"But some times at night, when the cold wind moans
In a long black veil, she cries over my bones"

sorry...didn't mean to make this seem any more morbid...it's just a really good song.

Orchid Grey said...

L. I love that song!

Trishna said...

Your earrings are beautiful and you do not look like any spooky girl at all more like someone out of this world in beauty.

I love these pictures. I think cemeteries are so gothic and gorgeous, and I feel like your outfit goes perfectly with the setting! Also, your nose piercing is awesome!

Amy said...

There's a graveyard about 5 mins from my house but i've never gone in though i've always meant to... these pictures are really pretty, love the outfit :)

lumikha said...

i would be sooo spooked. my imagination is a little too creative and i would probably end up scaring myself...on the other hand, your outfit looks totally comfy! i like!

lion heart vintage said...

wow, what a beautiful setting. i grew up across from an amazing, old cemetery as a child and it actually had a tree just like that one! i also found solace there... maybe it's the finality of it all? it just seems peaceful once you get over that initial fear! :)

your outfit is so very elegant. i love how the earrings are long just like the dress. seems like something audrey hepburn would wear!

i think cemeteries are one of the most peaceful places. i also find them really intriguing... every name on every gravestone, i want to know more! who were they, what did they do, were they married, did they have kids? of course, there's also such a rad eeriness to a cemetery that i love. i'm actually in the middle of planning a film project right now that takes place in a cemetery - i'm super excited about it! :)

you look fantastic!

Hannah said...

I've always loved cemetaries too. Maybe it's morbid, but I like going to look at the graves and wonder about the people.
When I was little my aunt would take me to cemetaries to do "rubbings" of the gravestones sos we could keep the designs. Those are some of my favorite memories.

Angie D said...

When I was growing up, I would walk past the most enchanting cemetery to my bus stop. It was always a favorite peaceful hangout for me because of the gorgeous trees and flowers. So, basically, I get your obsession!

I love your outfit--a great fresh look for a maxi dress! And your earrings are HOT!

Alli XT said...

Not weird at all - my favorite place in Boston is the Forrest Hills Cemetery - it's amazing. If you've never been you should check it out on your next visit.
I love the striped top and the long earrings.

Aww... "Spooky Little Girl Like You" is one of my parents songs! I love it...

My local cemetery is one of my friends on twitter. No joke! It is such an incredible place... http://www.oaklandcemetery.com/

Ooh I love that you did the photos in the cemetery! I don't think it's spooky at all. I love to take a walk through a cemetery from time to time, it's so quiet and peaceful there and the angel statues are beautiful photo motifs.
Your photos look great btw!

Aubrey said...

I like my local cemetery too! My friends think I'm weird, but I find it so peaceful. Glad to know I'm not the only one!

LovelyLeigh said...

This is so high fashionable! The dress makes you look so tall and the earrings are lovely! I love that you rock the septum!!! Tree branch mustache is hilarious!

These photos remind me of The Graveyard Book about a little boy that lives in a graveyard raised by ghosts.. sounds morbid but actually a lovely story.

Penny said...

Carolina said...

you're right, cemeteries are so relaxing and their kinda gothic cachet makes them such a great place for a fashion shoot! keep on smiling dear ^^
