Outfit: Exploring Busey Woods

Today Nathan Adhikari and I went on a search to find Busey Woods which is located near Crystal Lake where we did our first shoot together 3 years ago. When we found this bridge we knew we found what we had been looking for and despite the mosquitos- we stayed. He also brought a vintage 1970's Yashica camera to snap photos with which is owned by his girlfriend Sarah's father. Thank you, Sarah! There was a wonderful breeze out today and the sun wasn't too hot... it was perfect weather to explore.
I am really loving this new dress sent to me from Persunmall. The color is a perfect hue of mint and the flying spirals on the skirt make me feel like Peter Pan and a blooming flower at the same time. It's really comfortable and I just love the design. Visit their facebook, website, and twitter to shop at their store! Thank you, Persunmall! .
