Fairy breath of summer

Outfit Details:
Violet Gloaming Dress: Anthropologie (old)
Flower wreath: Sterling Renaissance Festival
Lilac ring: LeffKatya
Shoes: ASOS

I've had this dress for a few years, and it's from when I was much heavier.  I had thought about selling it, but it's such a gorgeous piece that I decided to selfishly hold on to it.  We ended up taking it to the tailor to have it altered, and this has allowed me to be able to wear it again!  It's not a perfect fit (the shoulder area is a little wonky now), but at least it looks fitted.  I also wanted to have the chance to wear this pretty floral crown before we have to bid adieu to summer.  I wish it were acceptable to not only wear floral crowns for most occasions, but to wear them year-round.

On a less-lighthearted note... I learned of some devastating news on Tuesday evening, about a theatre student from my alma mater.  There aren't a lot of details yet, and because I'm not especially close to the situation, I'm not going to post anything here.  But I will say that he was an incredibly bright light in our Wagner family, and I feel incredibly privileged to have known and worked with him, even within a limited capacity.  My heart is breaking for his family and friends.  I've been very introspective for the last couple of days, just thinking about making the most of the time we have, and cherishing our experiences.  He was such a spirited person, and he always appreciated the beauty in life.  I want to always remember to stop and appreciate the beauty that's all around us.

Be good to each other, and keep your loved ones close.
