ruffles and reflections







The abnormally warm weather last weekend made the idea of a photoshoot irresistible. I grabbed my camera and headed straight outside, blissfully blissfully snapping shots here and there. 
My favorite shot is the first one of the necklace I made. I am a non-denominational Christian, so my church doesn't do Lent, but I decided to give up shopping again this year since my closet is cluttered with all sorts of things I never wear. Last year I couldn't make it, but so far I'm still going strong. To help ease my retail-therapy withdrawal, I took a trip to Michael's with my mom and looked for pendants to make some jewelry (craft supply shopping, of course, doesn't count as it encourages creativity.) I stumbled upon this cute little camera and bought it to make a necklace. After painstakingly removing jewels on an old chain, I slipped the camera on, and voi! There you have it--creative and eco-friendly jewelry!
Thanks for reading lovelies, I'm on spring break so I will be sure to post again soon!

Avec amour,
Lily

  1. I have always admired your playfully casual sense of style. These many splashes of color are lovely ranging from the cardigan to your colorful sneakers. This dress is very lovely along with your belt. And to me, nothing says lovely lady like a flower in one's hair (even if it's a floral headband). Looking wonderful, Lily. By the way, I also like the camera necklace.
