Well THIS was difficult – as much as it’s really easy to find lily of the valley fragrances, and lily of the valley room fragrances, finding garments or accessories with lilies of the valley is pretty difficult. (if you see something, please post a link in the comments!)
But we persevere, right!
Yes, the blouse is absurdly expensive… but the jewelry is winsomely lovely…
So how can we channel our inner “lily of the valley” when we struggle to find something that obviously and specifically shows our flower? Maybe just adding a bit of spring green to our the neutral dresses that we break out at the first hint of warm weather…
The green that you bring into an outfit can be very subtle, and the floral ideal can be as small as some very stylized flower earrings. You could wear something like this to the most serious occasion and not be out of place (except maybe change the slides for pumps…):
Or if you’re in love with a bright floral scarf, this is the time to wear it! A classic shirtdress is perfect for spring if you roll up the sleeves and unbutton that one extra button…
The floral ideal can easily include leaves – there aren’t really flowers without leaves, right? And there’s a wide range of shades of green – if you’re not into lime or bright leaf, don’t dismiss the idea of the most subtle shades of mossy beauty… And yes, the tassel on the bag echoes one of the accent colors in the scarf. These are the small details that make my days fun!
Grey and green isn’t something that you see every day, but there’s no rule against it!
A simple white dress, a bright tie in your hair, and some springy green accessories – this is the easiest way possible to get dressed! The right undergarment makes ALL the difference, for a dress like this!
And if you’re a fan of more subtle colors, there’s still a perfect shade of green for you. I chose these earrings to bring a bit of a different color near our heroine’s face, and to pick up those flowers in the scarf.
Next month we get to look at roses – I suspect that I’ll be absolutely BURIED in beautiful things…
