I've been to my favourite place to explore again! Last time I thought I left one corner of St. George's Fields unexplored, but today I actually realized there's yet another little nook of graves that I've not been to. Even though they have removed a lot of the gravestones, there is still so much to look at. And it's a lovely place to spend a sunny afternoon even if one isn't into cemeteries and headstones and death, haha. I hadn't expected so many people to be enjoying my wee cemetery, and it actually seemed larger than in the spring. I'm thinking of making my next visit a little later in the day, so it'd be darker. But I don't know if that'll just be super creepy and if all the weirdos will be out there once it's closer to midnight..

Anyway, I may have gotten myself some new shoes for the summer. I contemplated getting these in black, but chose the nude ones that look less school girly. Not that I actually find anything wrong with looking like a school girl. But I buy black shoes far too often, so it's nice to have something else as well. And I don't know if it's clear enough, but my socks have a violet print, which is really sweet! I also got the bracelet and look forward to people asking about my boyfriend whose name begins with a C. In reality, I wanted the C to remember my wee Cleopatra. When she died, I thought of having her ashes made into a diamond/gem (yes, that might sound strange to some of you..), getting a tattoo in her honour or getting a remembrance necklace. I never really did any of that, and even though I still might get a more expensive little necklace I think it'll be nice to wear this. It's really simple but also really meaningful. I never really wear delicate and dainty lil' bracelets like this, as I'm too afraid of having them get caught on something and breaking them. This one was only £1, I think, so I won't be absolutely devastated when I lose it.

Well, this is a bit depressing. And I'm sorry that I'll probably continue on the subject of death despite the fact that this's all perceived as morbid by some.. I have loads of cemetery photos (again),  but I'll try to figure out which ones I like the best and limit it to only one more post. Yay, cemeteries!

Cute hair :) I have too many black shoes too so I get really excited when I add a nude or tan color to the mix. Love how you paired them with these socks. And I'm so jealous of your lush green surroundings haha.

I love this eclectic outfit! The jacket is so unique and pretty, and the colorful socks are totally something I would do :) The C bracelet is also lovely, so sweet to honor your dear cat.

My best friends and I had fun wandering cemeteries when we were thirteen, mostly to scare ourselves! The ones near us weren't nearly as historic or beautiful like yours, though.

HI! I hear you on the graves thing, there's something about grave yards that pulls you in, my mum always tells me when she was little they would go for picnics in grave yards!

Laura said...

Claire - hey, lovely:-) there really is, i could just spend hours wandering around graveyards! i don't know how i'd feel about picnicing at them, but i suppose depending on the graveyard, that'd be fun! x
