Fly Fridays: Ghosties

Dress/Belt: Lavo (similar here and here)
Shoes: Old Navy (similar)
Necklace: Gift
Ring: Jewelmint (similar) 

Greetings! I hope everyone is having a fantastic Friday thus far. Today's post takes place in a cemetery (duh) and you might be thinking what an odd choice of backdrop for that outfit... and you would be right. It is quite odd indeed. However, I personally like to think of this dress as my 'creepy dark-haired little orphan girl from 100+years back' dress. Granted with bright pink accessories it makes it a little bit less creepy, but you cannot honestly tell me that the cut of this dress does not give off creepy orphan kid vibe. Anywho, that is why I chose a cemetery for these photos. Just getting in the Halloween spirit early, you know?

In all seriousness though, I love this dress. Creepy orphan vibe and all. 

Taylor and I stumbled across this cemetery while driving through Robinson Texas looking for places to shoot photos. It was a sunrise photoshoot so both of us were pretty out of it, but at the sight of the cemetery we perked up and decided that we would definitely be shooting there at some point in the day. With a creepy lake and fog rolling in next door, we got out and ventured up the hill to the cemetery. All was fine and dandy for a while, but after some time had passed we both broke out into some pretty serious rashes. The grass was really tall so it was probably some sort of reaction to it, but I'm going to go with the more exciting option of: the place was crawling with rash giving ghosties. 

Despite the itchyness it was a beautiful cemetery. The headstones were gorgeous and they held some fascinating history. I've always loved wandering around old cemeteries and looking at all of the markers. It is truly a humbling and solemn experience. 

Thanks for reading! 

Stay Golden,
