The Halo

Dress: c/o eShakti   Floral Crown: c/o The Halo


I let my inner hippie come out for these photos. I couldn't help it, this floral crown from The Halo brought it out. Isn't it the cutest thing ever?? I have one more to showcase from them, and I'm looking forward to it. For now though, the Flower Child Halo is one that brings about dancing around in the yard barefoot and humming Fleetwood Mac songs.

Its shocking to realize how quickly summer is ending. Thinking back over what's gone on these past few months, I know I've had a rather unusual one. It's been one of growing, let's say that. What I've learned is that being a grown up sucks. Its easier to let others take care of you, but you can't go on like that throughout your entire life. So while its easier to daydream about being a little kid and how your biggest worry used to be whether mom remembered to cut the crust off your sandwich, it's time to face big girl responsibilities. Like stressing over gas money, rent, groceries, and tuition.

Why in the world were we in such a hurry to grow up??

Sell your possessions, and give to the needy. Provide yourselves with moneybags that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys.

Ahh, Linda you're just so lovely! I love that pretty print dress and beautiful flower crown. And gosh darn it, I always seem to miss your posts, but it was very mature of you to defend your friend's position. I think that if you both understand each other's motives and feelings, everything will turn out okay. And your nails in that post were just exquisite!

But this is about THIS post. These photos are so dreamy and the epitome of summer. I'm so sad that it's slowly winding to an end and it's beginning to hit me that I'm going to have to stress about all those things soon too! Gah, I just want to tell all the children I encounter to enjoy their innocent and carefree lives as long as they can.

You look so pretty! That floral crown is so beautiful and perfect. I can see myself wearing it.

I grow up a lot with my student exchange in Spain. I was alone. Very far from my family and friends. I was always stressing about the rent, groceries and all that. I want to be a kid again. I want to be Peter Pan but we need to grow up.

Oh I can't believe summer is ending! It seems like it just started. I love the floral crown with the gorgeous sunset photos!

shamuboo said...

Wow, Linda, you really outdid yourself with these shots. Where to begin, I guess the one on your back with the sun setting your beautiful hair aglow and that smile. The dress is a wonderful piece but you are the star of these shots. A plethora, and abundance even of shots of the lovely legs, that adorable flower crown, the hippie-fied no shoes and those eyes. Blown away!

katie said...

Aw man, you totally rock the floral crown, it looks adorable and perfect you. (And I love it with the floral dress, it's very sweet looking.) It is crazy that summer is almost over, it seems like it just flew by this year. Ugh, not ready for winter. :P

(Halo by Rihanna starts playing) I can see your halo... halo... halo... man, that song can actually be pretty obnoxious at times. But your flower crown is NOT! Or should I say flower halo? That's such a cute little wreath of flowers crowning your head, my fairy lady! You're lookin' quite in tune with nature here, mmmhmm! And your dress totally reminds me of fine china, a really delicate teacup. So cuteeee, eeee~

Oh man, the last thing I am in a rush to do is gro wup, don't you worry!

Also when you said cut the crust of the sandwich, I awed because my mom did the same thing. :) And she would cut my peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in the shapes of a puzzle piece... ee!

I feel like summer has passed by way too fast. Grrr

Fleetwood Mac! Love your hippie look, it's so fresh and pretty and feminine!
It's a little strange for me that the only distinction between summer and fall is the season itself! No classes for me this semester, which I'm kinda bummed about, but it'll be good to save up for tuition rather than get in debt right away... It is stressful taking care of yourself financially, but just remember that God will take care of you. Just as He "clothes the grass of the field", He'll care for you. :)

These photos are perfect! You are the perfect little hippie/flower child! I love that dress and the flower crown?! Oh emm gee! It's perfection!
These photos turned out so well! The lighting is perfect and you look absolutely stunning (always:)).

Summer has flown by and I hate it! Summer is my favorite time of year and I'm dreading the cold!
I totally understand the whole growing up thing. When you are young you are so eager to grow up as you only see it as FREEDOM. When you are grown up, you realize how much more it means to be an adult, and it's so much more work!

Maiken said...

looks like floral crowns are super popular these days.. at least many bloggers love them ;) but why not to celebrate summer with a flower crown?! I think it's a lovely thing to do since flowers and summer always go together :)

Hi Linda, you are a bohemian princess, this is such a beautiful look, my favorite from your summer outfits, the floral crown is so feminine, think it should be a staple because it really suits you so well. I can imagine how difficult is must be having to grow up so fast and become responsible once you move out, but everything is a learning curve and moulds you into being something better than before.

You look beautiful and so happy in these photos! I love that halo! And yes, it is much easier being a kid, and everyone is always in such a rush to grow up!

Awe, flower child. Love you in that headband. And I totally agree, I wish I would have spent more time enjoying those real summer vacations when I was younger. Summer has never been the same sine 12th grade graduation. Lol!
