palette :: oxford afternoon

THIS SPRING SIGNALS THE PASSING of two years since my visit to England. Despite the time lapse, I continually find memories, hope and inspiration from the entire experience. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, it truly changed my life.

This photograph was taken one afternoon during a solo venture to a fancy thrift store near the botanical gardens in Oxford. It was such a sunny yet brisk, sleepy afternoon. The back room was lined with beautiful gowns and costume jewelry, and the left side brimming with gentlemens’ suits. I bought a sheer yellow scarf with black plaid around the trim, and unfortunately, never returned…
England, I will find you again some day!
