Dandelions and Dungarees

From pebble to dandelion, everything shimmers a little brighter in the sun.

I just returned from a short holiday through the mountains and lakes of British Columbia. The view from my window as the car wheels rolled was exactly what I needed. The softwood trees danced with only the sky as their roof, and the endless streams made me glad I never learned to fly.

Along the way we stopped to visit the lakes. They were bitterly cold but I promised myself that a day will come where I jump right in. I bet the ragged crows will scoff at me when I do. What makes a human want to jump into a freezing cold lake? Or camp by the company of grizzly bears? What is it about the smell of firewood that makes us feel alive?

 Sometimes all you need in life is the mountains and a map.

  2. These are such lovely photos! And you look beautiful as well. :) I definitely need to get my hands on a pair of overalls soon! They look so comfortable.

    By the way, has anyone ever told you that you look a bit like Jennifer Lawrence? Haha!

  9. Wow, it looks so beautiful where you were. I love the wooden path through the flowers. Sounds like a wonderful break. It kind of looks like you had a holiday in the past with those pictures. I mean it in a good way, but they look like images from a magazine from the 70s. I love the dungarees and I am so glad they are back in fashion because they are dead comfy. I am longing for dungarees shorts at the moment.

  16. My dream dungarees! It is so rare to find a great fitting pair of flaired overalls- I'm still on the hunt! Each piece of this outfit it so lovely and perfectly paired. How right you are, dear! I wish I could trade my problems for mountains and a map.

  22. I love your pictures, Amy. How are your photographs so impossibly vintage-looking? I found your blog last year after buying the 'Amy Flying a Kite Dress' via ModCloth because I fell in love with the way you styled it, and I've enjoyed watching your blog grow ever since. You have such a way with words.
