Fashion Inspiration // Lovely in lace and leaves

The delicate tracery of leaves


Whether it's Fall in the Northern Hemisphere or Spring in the Southern Hemisphere, there's a commonality to an element which is symbolic to both seasons right now: the leaf.

And so what would be lovelier than an outfit which celebrates the sculptural form of one of nature's finest artworks?

This outfit works in either season - especially with the addition of a silky-soft wrap for when the weather suddenly turns a little chilly - as it does in both Fall and Spring. 

Let your life lightly dance
on the edges of Time
like dew on the tip of a leaf.
— rabindranath tagore (1861-1941)
