Ah, the sweet smell of Spring. If only you could smell this lovely flowering plum tree too . . .
I am so glad that this year there is an abundance of beautiful flowering trees around our place, not only because they look and smell wonderful, but because they stand in as exceptional backdrops for photos as well!
I suppose I don’t have much else to say about these photos as you’ve seen this Vogue pattern 1044 dress before, when I wore it for Easter. I changed it up a bit this time around though, and chose this combination specifically because of my Me Made May challenge to wear all of my homemade garments and accessories. I made the dress, and the striped clutch and I was originally going to pair the ensemble with a peach silk flower covered hat I made a few years ago, but let’s just say I was having hair issues and that didn’t work out the way it was planned. . . But that’s OK as this straw and peach floral accented hat worked perfectly as a stand in. So, even though it wasn’t a 3 for 1, it ended up being a 2 for one handmade outfit, which is OK with me. Let me also toss in a note about how I absolutely love the combination of stripes and floral, yet somehow I have never thought to pair these two before now. I need to wear this clutch more often, because it is one of my favourites, and I just feel like black and white stripes go with everything . . . (That sounds strange, is that even how you are supposed to say that? You wear a purse? You carry a purse? I don’t know. I’ll just say I accessorized with this purse.)
Hopefully wherever you are, flowers of all varieties are out in full force as well, filling the air with their wonderful scent and heralding the approach of summer!
