Civilization Is The Progress Toward A Society Of Privacy

My friend who was visiting last week has flown back across the country. Her absence and miserable, grey weather have left me with little desire to venture far outdoors. This week I have not explored much, but have chosen to hole myself up in my room with the music blasting and a pile of books to devour. As much as I am an independent person, I do occasionally enjoy the company of someone I know well to encourage me towards new frontiers. It is one thing to discover an abandoned shack in the woods and another entirely to stumble upon it while with a friend...
P.S. If you like vintage check out Mother's Daughter. It's a new amazingly, curated online shop and it's where my dress is from.

Outfit details:
H&M hat
UO jacket
vintage dress via Mother's Daughter
Cynthia Rowley tights via Gilt
vintage shoes
Juicy Couture handbag via Gilt
self-mixed nail polish

What a sweet outfit! Exploring this with friends is surely a lot of fun ♥

said...

Lovely pictures, that dress is so sweet!
I especially like that last picture, it looks so dreamy and almost ghostlike.

Rosie said...

I so love those shoes!

meowsk said...

I love that you are not afraid to get on the ground for your photos. It always seems like a good idea but ultimately the spiders get the best of me and I get to afraid.

Quite lovely!

This outfit is so eclectic and comfy looking. I love that hat. I kind of like how in our climates we can still wear tights and hats and stuff even in summer. I feel like I have a lot more latitude in what I wear.

Jonna said...

Lovely pictures! You're so sweet especially in the first one :) x

i'm with delightfully tacky- our climate gives us the ability to layer- creating one outfit at one point in the day, and another when we molt. i still haven't put away sweaters, and tights are a must when it's still this chilly! so whimsy to see you 'dreaming' in the grass... keep up the good stuff!

bestie said...

Aww sorry to hear about that, I totally sympathize. Adventures (or even random, everyday things) really are more fun when you have someone to share them with! Still, you are looking lovely as ever in these photos Rebecca. I always love your lying-on-the-grass pics. (:

I love that knit hat! It looks like a hand knit so I was surprised to see it was from H&M. So cute!

vintagewithatwist said...

your outfits are always so cute. Love this yellow hat.

I just noticed your at ft lewis, I'm dying for my husband to get stationed there :)

boo said...

you are so cute on the first pic, the eyes! :))

Ali said...

If I was to lay in the grass like that down here, I'd get mud all over me. It must be nice to have dry grass, haha! Pretty photos. :D

Julia said...

I know how grey weather can get a person down -- anyway, you look adorable. I love the bright pop of yellow...

I love how dark your hair looks :) This outfit is great for Spring or fall. It is funny how you can layer and look cute, but by me it is 80 outside and everyone looks like they are melting. :P

That dress? Made of win.

joyce. said...

Great outfit, and I completely understand what you mean. I would kind of be too scared to explore an abandoned shack if I was alone.

Morgan and Lua said...

Great dress. Love the splashes of mustard and brick brown.

Oh, this outfit is fabulous. I would happily give it a new home on me. That dress is so cool. Will go check that shop out asap.

oh, and this may be of interest (to you and your sponsors) but whenever I am looking for vintage clothes online or other new shops to check out I always come here and peruse your sponsor links. Really. It is much easier than searching through all the dross!

KD said...

Not only do I love your outfit, I am so impressed by your photo-taking skills! That last one especially seems mighty difficult to take with only a tripod.

Marika said...

Wowo, you are so lovely!

joanne said...

i love the contrast between your red lipstick, brown hair and the mustard yellow beanie.

and I know what you mean. it is maybe not always but a nice feeling to have a close friend to explore new places with.

Tüppÿ said...

Rebecca, you seem to be quite a fan of Emily Dickinson! Except from what you publish here, I've never read anything she wrote and I would like to change that. Is there a particular book you would recomend for a newbie like myself? I'd be forever greatfull! x)

Isabel said...

Desiree said...

I am the same way. I love my time alone, but I always feel that twinge of loneliness when a friend leave for their home.

Also, I adore the third picture. I love how you always work some creative photography into your posts.

Alyssa said...

You look lovely and so comfortable lazin' around in the grass :) But you're in Washington so... asn't the grass all wet?!??! I like how your mustard-colored hat brings out the subtle little yellow blossoms here and there...

What books have you been reading?

Mae Lu said...

Yes, there is something about exploration by oneself. It's kind of frightening and intimidating, but also freeing.

I found an old ramshackle of an old shed that was part of a crumbling estate house locked in the woods with no apparent driveway... the shed was far off from the estate house so it took me awhile to realize there actually was a house it was associated with rather than being some enchanted, broken down cabin of yesteryear.

Sometimes, I'd rather be inside, anyway.

I love that dress.

If you're ever interested in selling it, please let me know before you list it! I believe you and I are the same size. I'd snatch it up in a second.

XX.
Mae Lu, thereafterish.

PS. I've changed my URL to http://thereafterish.wordpress.com, would you be so kind as to kindly edit the current URL for thereafterish.? I'd appreciate it so much!
