Dreamy Eyed in Cambodia

Most times, the outfit takes center-stage in our posts on ‘Wears’. But sometimes it is best to let the location steal the limelight, especially when it is as spectacular as the Angkor Temples in Cambodia. I wanted these outfit photos to capture fluidity – endless corridors, majestic balustrades, and wilting leaves at the temples melding with Savi’s simple maxi dress without any outlines or stark accessories.

 

This set of Savi’s photos remind me of a piece by Michael Faudet :-)

She was a curious girl, a wanderer,
 who spent her summers chasing
fluttering pieces of prose
and eating strawberries
