Return of Flowers

 








Though spring has only really just started, the flowering trees have all bloomed at once and it is glorious! We have a few trees in our garden that are running a bit behind the rest in the neighborhood and I can't wait for them to bloom so I can bring branches inside and have fresh flowers accenting my desk again. Eventually our lilac will bloom too and that always makes the whole room smell divine!

I decided to wear some flowers too, this time by way of a lightweight cotton top I made a few years ago out of another one of Gretchen Hirsch's Joanns line of fabrics. This time I paired the blouse with my bright red circle skirt and green accessories. If only I could find a green belt in this grass-ish yellow-green shade! The shoes are from Bait and are super comfortable which is always a plus, and I even brought out my wicker handbag which truly means it must be spring once more!

Have I mentioned I am leaving for a pretty big and exciting trip on Tuesday? Perhaps you can tell because my posting has been a bit infrequent and all over the place! I need to sort that out, but I am quite busy finishing up lots of sewing projects in time to pack them in my suitcase! Where to you ask? To a land full of Ludreee macarons, gothic cathedrals, adorable hill towns, and amazing museums, I am finally returning to Europe to visit Burgundy and Paris once again! I am so lucky to be going on this trip, and I can't wait to share my travels with all of you <3

  2. Very pretty! I always love seeing everyone pull out the floral prints once spring really starts to get going - it just feels so right. The red is beautiful on you, and the pops of green are a really fun touch.
