OOTD: On Est High Père

It’s been raining intermittently for days now. So unfortunately I haven’t been able to get any pictures taken at all; (well hello autumn, we see you). Thankfully, the rains gave in for a few hours and I was able to slip in a few shots. You can still see the water on my skirt 🙁

Florie Mwanza is one of my favourite buzzcut-rocking bloggers. Here’s what she had to say:
