Flower Girl

The Wind in the Wisteria



Our wisteria is in full fragrant bloom right now and this corner of the yard is smelling amazing! With the windows open on a beautiful day, its sweet scent wafts into the house with each breeze… in this case carrying outfit inspiration along with it...

I’ve been super lucky when it comes to winning awesome blog giveaways lately. Looking out at the delicate white wisteria blooms spilling along our fence yesterday, I knew it would make the perfect backdrop for the gorgeous white shawl I won recently over at the lovely Anne’s beautiful blog A Cup Full of Sunshine. Among other wonderful goodies, her package also included that amazing little crochet bag!

Our huge peachy rose arbor has also reached peak amazingness. Perhaps it was the combination of the roses and the wisteria that made me think to pair my new shawl with the pretty floral dress I received from Milla awhile back :)


Once I had the the dress on, I realized that this outfit just wouldn’t be complete without the beautiful cameo locket that I recently won in another fabulous giveaway by the ever-stylish Lisa of Starship Narcissus… um, am I a lucky girl or what?!

this outfit is incredibly beautiful and delicate and you have certainly won some lovelies! that rose arbor next to the wisteria is like the prettiest thing i've ever seen and really makes me wish for a gorgeous romantic garden. i love how the roses have these giant droopy creamy peach petaled heads like sleepy morning english maidens.

I forgot about that Fleetwood Mac Video. I always loved those flowy (sp?) dresses Stevie Nicks wore.
Great pics, I think I was down at your house that day and it was in full bloom, smelling lovely and oh so warm.
