Bohemian Bride

Dress: American Eagle   Necklace: c/o Shop Lately   Floral Crown: c/o The Halo
"Whoa, I love your braids!" my co-worker said to me. "I don't see fishtails enough."
"I know, right? And now you get to see two of them! At once!"

I've taken to wearing my hair like this more often, and when I waltzed into American Eagle one day, the bohemian influence was strong. My arms were filled with some clearance finds, one of them being this gorgeous dress! The maxi length and white color do make me think of wedding season, but I couldn't resist trying it on anyway. Naturally, I ended up loving it so much I had to take it home with me.

So this summer has been going along splendidly, and I'm happy to have such wonderful people in my life to spend it with.

There's one particular night where Caleb and I decided to scramble on the top of a roofed, bench area on our college campus. The wooden slats on top were spaced so that when we lay down, we felt like our bodies were being turned into Ruffle chips. However, when gazing up, the view of the stars was fantastic. Not to mention it was always a fun zing of excitement when ducking down to avoid security.
We weren't harming the property by any means, merely taking advantage of the marvelous view it offered, but those security guards can get fussy at time, you know?

Anyway, my Astronomy class that I'm taking this summer has been eye opening in the way I view the stars. I enjoy knowing the tales and myths that go along with the constellations immensely, and sharing them with others is always entertaining. Those Greeks were some seriously perverse story tellers - which is probably why their raunchy tales are known to this day! Haha, they certainly can be entertaining!

However, as a Christian, I do enjoy learning the scientific aspect of things as well. It makes me wonder at His design and how perfectly it was created. Not to mention, beautiful! So much beauty is in this world if you stop and look.

When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him?
Psalm 8:3-4

That flower crown is so lovely Linda! :) I love the dress too. Your friend is a good photographer!

Your astronomy class sounds so cool. I'm so excited to go to college just so I can take classes like that. High school is all APs and boring, standard classes. I am excited for the freedom and variety that college classes will offer :)

Such a gorgeous look for you. Love all things bohemian! Sometimes I wish I had gone more boho for my wedding, but since I didn't really plan it (courthouse), guess it is what it is. Best part is still being able to enjoy the fruits of marriage!

What a cool maxi -- the AEO clearance section is usually amazing :)

Greek myths are quite interesting. They are entertaining in the sense that their stories are unique...but some of them also perpetuate this warped view of masculinity and femininity that can quickly become problematic. Either way, fascinating to learn about their explanations behind natural occurrences!

Amanda said...

You look gorgeous with your hair like this =)...I m really liking this look. Oh and thank you for your kind words and for stopping by my blog =) Thank you Linda.

I don't know how did it happen, but we really look very similar, you are right))) No wonder, I love such style too and summer is also such a season when we can wear gentle maxi dresses and flower crowns:)
I've got to say you look amazingly beautiful in white, and that flower accessory makes the whole attire looks complete. I really enjoyed those photographs of you, Linda! Hope to see you more often in such feminine gowns;)

Justine Prabucki said...

I love maxi dresses and the boho look that you're rocking so well. Ive never taken an astronomy class but I have taken a mythology class and I always found it interesting how the stars played a part in some of those stories

Oh Linda! So nice to see you posing and have fun and showing your creativity. That necklace is DIVINE. I love it.

I am better but not well enough to pose. My skin is yellowish-green now days and that is not to be blogged about, seriously.

But I had an awesome five hour nap today. AWH ~~~

You look like a true bohemian princess :), the flower crown is lovely!

The security guards were probably worried about health and safety too. If you fell down and they had seen you up there maybe they'd be questioned as to why they didn't tell you to come down from the roof. I'm just speculating though, as security guards are often sticklers for certain things!
