A magic draught in summer's cup

Hi, so I'm just popping in for a little blog update before I head up to New Hampshire to visit my family. It's my Daddy's birthday tomorrow!! Happy Birthday Dad!
So this outfit is a version of what I wore to the She & Him Concert. I'm in love with this flowy skirt and it is especially fun to dance in!

And since I haven't done this in a while, here is a little poem excerpt for you by one of my favorite authors:

'Noon, hiving sweets of sun and flower,
Has fallen on dreams in wayside bower,
Where bees hold honeyed fellowship
With the ripe blossom of her lip;
All silent are her poppied vales
And all her long Arcadian dales,
Where idleness is gathered up
A magic draught in summer's cup.
Come, let us give ourselves to dreams
By lisping margins of her streams.'


Excerpt from A Summer Day, By Lucy Maude Montgomery

  16. Cutee. I like the shoes, I'd get them in a brown color though. I need a good neutral pair of shoes.
