Spring comes slowly



I'm having a difficult time coming up with words to go along with this post. But, I will just say that this outfit was inspired by the Velveteen Rabbit scans I previously posted about, kumquat soda, ranunculus flowers in any and every color, cupcake breakfasts, and all the nice daydreams that have been swirling around my head lately of owning a candy store and ice cream shoppe. And I mean the nice kind - with a long countertop and pretty stools that spin around and around. Old booths with carved initials and a black and white checkerboard floor to hop across. Not to forget the pretty pretty pink and white milk glass and jadeite dishes and shelves and shelves of the most beautiful imported candy to exist... If only....

Lovely colors.
And I think I have a pair of t-straps almost exactly like those, mine are lighter and wedges. I would live in them if I could.

Such a beautiful outfit! I love the subdued oranges and green and it all ties together so well.

effie, if anyone in this world could actually end up owning shop like that and making it work its YOU!

you look completely adorable. i've been meaning to find ways to wear pants this summer because ordinarily i feel ridiculous in them...
i think i might steal this look if its alright with you.

how are you always so perfectly put together?
