Thistle and Weeds

You will just have to take my word for it that there are wild thistles growing here in Colorado since I didn't snap any photos of them this time, but there certainly are a lot of weeds in these photos. 

Just a simple summer outfit for a quick walk around the wetlands area of the local botanic garden. The weather was perfect, the sunlight beautiful, and the landscape serene. I wore a tropical print dress I made last year (and wore to the zoo last summer) with taupe and ivory accessories. The necklace and earrings set was something I picked up on Etsy over spring as I couldn't resist the bamboo shaped beads! The skirt of this dress doesn't have the most even hem sadly, the fabric is loosely woven and so it has stretched a bit oddly after being washed. Luckily you can't really tell right? right...

Though it will soon be time to store my tropical prints and pull out the plaids (okay fall is still a while away...) I am already looking forward to it! Perhaps I am just tired of being hot all the time, I find it very disagreeable! 

Dress: Made by me
Handbag, Belt, & Jewelry: Vintage
Shoes: Bait (Modcloth)
Sunglasses: Sunglasses Museum (Etsy)


  1. Incredible dress! I love the tropical print, and you fit in so perfectly at the lovely botanical gardens. You're definitely saying goodbye to summer the right way.

  2. That's a nice fabric, I do like that kind of print. Pretty backdrop x

    1. Thanks Porcelina! It wasn't fun to work with but the print was too cute not to wrangle with <3

  3. Awesomely pretty outfit. I love a good tropical inspired floral print like that. I tend to wear mine fairly equally during both the summer and winter months - the latter being because I need a serious jolt of colour to help perk up the often dreary palette of a long Canadian winter.

    Oodles of hugs,

    1. Thank you Jessica! I just love tropical prints, I need to acquire a few more of them before my Mexico trip in November so I can look like a jungle while I'm in the jungle ;)

  4. The print really is fabulous and it makes a wonderful tropical dress. Perfect backdrop!
