Garden Style

Wednesday, April 6, 2011

Spring in Virginia is absolutely stunning!  There are beautiful flowers blooming everywhere you look - except in front of our house.  Instead, we're beautifying our yard with a sad looking dead plant that I killed during my gardening attempt last summer.  (Apparently planting something and then forgetting to ever water it again does not result in a beautiful garden...)  I do have plans to give it another attempt this weekend (or at least just remove the dead plant), but I've decided that when it comes to having a beautiful flower garden the closest I'm going to get is wearing pretty floral patterns.

With the exception of all the Lilly Pulitzer in my closet, I don't really own many floral prints.  I'm just not  crazy about the small, symmetrical floral patterns that seemed to be all I came across (or noticed) until recently.  Well - problem solved!  While perusing the internet today I found (and subsequently fell in love with) these lush, garden-inspired floral prints/patterns.

Of course, to satisfy my Lilly Pulitzer/bold and bright colors craving these two floral dresses are also amazing!


Completely unrelated note:  I finished the Fever series last week (which was awesome) and now I'm back to my usual diet of romance novels (cheesy I know but I can't pass up a story where people fall in love and things end happily ever after).  Anyways, this quote came from the third book in the series (Faefever) and I loved it too much not to share.

"It's just that in the Deep South, women learn at a young age that when the world is falling apart around you, it's time to take down the drapes and make a new dress."

  3. I love that quote! I'm going to have to read that series. Even though I'm a California girl, I've always wanted to be a Southern Bell.
