Suede Pinafores Passed Midnight

One thirty in the morning is, by far, my favorite time of day. Since I'm in that spot where I'm dreaming more than I'm not, I can understand the moon as it yawns through my blinds and sits at the corner of my bed. And all I have to do is open the window and the smell of midnight and dogwood trees comes in for a spell, carried in by the breeze. It makes me wonder how many people cast pennies into the sky like it was a wishing well and, if I open the window wide enough, if some of those prayers would come into my room, like they were gliding through the air like paper planes. 

Good stuff happens at one thirty in the morning.

  5. Your one thirty in the morning is my 5:30, haha. ;) I love being up before everyone else--I'm an early bird and there's something about the darkness and quiet but still knowing it's morning and OK to be up that's comforting.

    Your top under that pinafore = major winnin', lady!

  9. If I see someone casting pennies out the windows at 1:30 I'd be like "wuut?" :D
    1:30 is the time my cats start going all crazy and start biting each other's butts :D Not very magical, indeed. :D
    Aaah this dress is so awesome, the top underneath is super cool too, great ensemble!

  12. Beautiful outfit and beautiful post! I'm more of an early bird, so my magical hour is waking up before my boyfriend and curling up with a coffee watching the sun rise over the lake. Cheers to those lovely moments of stillness :)

  16. You're right... the early a.m. is always when good stuff happens to me too. Or when I suddenly feel productive haha. You look like you stepped out of Swinging London in this outfit. Love it :)

  19. I freaked for a moment there Marlen, because I started reading and when you said 1:30 being a good time, I glanced down at the bottom of my laptop screen to see what time it was and it was 1:30 am! 0_o
    The coincidences...and now I must take a moment to gaze out my window at the moon :)
    Also, your bright blue and red striped top peeking out from underneath the yellow pinafore makes my eyes happy! ^^

  22. Lovely post and outfit. I'm always up at 1:30am. I tend to go to bed super late because I'm the most creative late at night. There's just something about the night that really makes me start thinking more creatively. :-)
