Outfit of the Day: Woodland Party

A few months ago my little sister Kimmy and our friend Cat celebrated their birthdays together with a woodland-themed party. I didn’t take many pictures at the party, but when we got home I had Adam take a few just as the “golden hour” was fading. My outfit is nothing special (it’s actually an old skirt paired with an old satin nightie I’ve otherwise never worn), but I just loved the colours and lighting we captured. 🙂


I also prepared a playlist for them which featured lots of exciting themed music, the sort of things you can imagine dancing around in the forest at night to, like songs from fantasy game soundtracks, The Medieval Baebes, Loreena McKennitt, Faun, Eluveitie, Elizabethan music, folk metal, etc.!

Toadstool cookies!


How cute is this concept? Edible “potted herbs” made of chocolate mousse and biscuit crumbs!

“Snails” made from salad rolls and gherkins!


I made a headdress for the occasion, using wire covered with a nice trim (which I improvisingly spray-painted gold). I used more wire to attach a bunch of random accessories, and the leaves gave it a crown-like effect.

Well, that’s probably enough angles of the same thing for now! 😉

A question for readers:

When it comes to personal expression, what are some of your favourite clothing styles, costumes, or pieces/themes to incorporate? Share below in the comments! 🙂


  1. Oh my word, these photos have left me in a state of awe and inspiration. They’re incredibly lovely and so enchantingly gorgeous, just as your outfit is. Splendidly work, sweet dear!
