There are times, when an outfit I create inspires where I want to go, and there are other times, when a place inspires my outfit. This was one of those other times. Justin suggested we go for a walk in the beautiful Tumwater Falls Park near Olympia, which was featured in my blog back in 2015 (posts Days Passed and Abandoned Beauty).
This magical place is full of photo opportunities and worth going out of your way to explore. It unmistakably evokes dreams of different eras and geographical places. And so was that sunny Saturday, the last day of April. My dreams took me to wild adventures, rather Indiana Jones-inspired.
I wanted to do denim on denim for a while now, but something off the beaten fashion path, so to speak. I took a structured denim shirt and soft tiered skirt, and added a light coat to this ensemble - a coat like this immediately suggests 1930s to me. I wish I had gloves and a little hat to add to my costume. Oh well, some day.
I like the juxtaposition of stiff denim vs. flowy chiffon, they play well, just like rocks and water play well in nature.
Just a few disarming accessories, and I am on my way.
Hold on, Indy, darling!
