Flower Child

Free People Top, Mother Jeans, Birkenstock Sandals, Ray Ban Sunnies

Growing up, we always had a beautiful garden. Once the weather turned, my Dad would take my sister and I to a farm stand or flower shop and let us pick out the flowers we liked best, and he would plant them. I always went for the bleeding hearts. The smell of hyacinths, the first sign of cherry blossoms, and budding tulips bring me back to my childhood, and I see my Dad on his hands and knees in the front yard, mulch up to his elbows, gardening. This time of year makes me so nostalgic for those days, but I am happy that I have projects like that to look forward to as I move into a house of my own.

My friend Ali and I spent the day outside last Sunday, and it was amazing to frolic in all of the flowers. This whimsical Free People top felt so appropriate for our day in nature, and the open back gives a sweet little nod to the impending warm weather.

Back in Birks

 Free People Dress, Levi’s Vest, Birkenstock Sandals

Love ‘em or hate ‘em, Birkenstocks are back, and in a big way! Once Céline debuted the ever-controversial footwear during fashion week, all bets were off, and the likes of Marni, Lanvin and Miu Miu quickly followed suit. Had you asked me two years ago if I could see myself wearing birk’s, I would’ve slapped you straight across the face; but here I am, birk’s in toe (pun obviously intended). Although I paired my new sandals with this Free People slip for a full on hippie look (okay… half on), I think an updated and chic way to rock the trend is with a pair of ankle jeans, a fresh pedi and an ultra-feminine blouse.

Skirt the Issue

DPP_822

 Free People Top, Anthropologie Skirt, Madewell Sandals, Ray Ban Sunnies (on sale!)

I love a good maxi — on the weekends, a maxi dress or skirt is just so easy to throw on and go; I always find myself struggling with what to wear to run my errands without looking dumpy (because we all know leggings and a tee seems to be the look of choice). This breezy silk skirt has a fun print and pairs well with my favorite white tee; seriously, I wear this tee once a week. Don’t miss out on Anthropologie’s free shipping this weekend with code INBLOOM!
