back from the grave



I love this charming cemetery I discovered by my school.
It's the final resting place for some very well-off Vermonters of yore, just full of grand old monuments.

    1. Guess the grass is always greener, 'cause I'd kill for 90 degree temps... all the wind & cold isn't too fun :(

    On a less morbid note, your hair looks so cute on these. Lovely outfit too!

  9. Oh you are looking super delectable Miss D, I absolutely adore the two-tone skirt and sweater with the belt:))). I do so love a fur collar on a coat, just brushing your chin against it makes you feel toasty doesn't it? What a beautiful cemetery, I love your cemetery pics!! xoxo

  14. There is a definite elegance to these graveyard shots that makes the location anything but eerie, more a spot (as it rightfully is) of hallowed, somber beauty and importance.

  15. What a great old cemetary!!! I love old cemeteries, my husband just told me tonight to skimp on the coffin and splurge on the headstone if he ever is in need he wants some that at least stand up. Morbid but I can respect it.

    1. Sounds like a good plan! ;) It makes me sad to see how many tombstones are all crumbling and the text almost worn off... I want something with some heft that'll stick around for a while!

  18. Thanks all! The boots are Dr. Martens, from their high-heeled range (the 'Darcie', I think, and they're covered in lace <3 ).... seriously the most comfortable shoes I own, flats included!
