a midsummer day’s dream

24th June, 2011

{ self-made flower crown, kelly framel earrings (coming very soon!), vintage gown via shrimpton couture, tiffany + vintage bracelets } this week marks both the summer solstice (which officially kicks off the season) and also the celebration of midsummer ~ a largely northern european tradition that, while not as common a custom in the states, still makes for a wonderful excuse to party! CLICK HERE to learn more about midsummer and enter to win some pretty ridiculous prizes (including pamela love jewelry, bobbi brown makeup, and a 3.1 philip lim bag!!).
