Blossom Dearie

When I wore the black version of this hat I got a couple of comments saying I looked like Blossom. I filed that away in the back of my head and when I went for a sleepover at a friends house, I took this cream version with me. I wake up the following day and leave and then what do I find in front of my friends house? A beautiful blooming magnolia tree. Of course very fitting, and of course the perfect photo op.

My mother got on the ground to take these pictures. I did not ask her to do that.
Yes she is strange, but she's mine. :)

Have a great day lovelies!

Wearing a target gray shirt, american apparel gray unitard, marc by marc jacobs boxer shorts, target tights, david aaron leather boots, and a steve by steve madden bag.

These pictures are gorgeous. I wish trees would bloom where I live ): Nice outfit.

I have vintage white boots that look exactly like that!! They remind me a bit of ice skates with the hook lace-ups at the top :) except mine have hard wooden heels which are a bother sometimes

Raez said...

lurve.

the magnolias are almost as lovely as your outfit!

cherish_jd said...

Oh you're so lucky you have flowers that are actually blooming! It's still so bare here. Very pretty hat and the Blossom reference brings back much nostalgia. Try a Clarissa Explains It All look next!

Jessica said...

those cherry blossoms are soooo pretty - and your outfit is simply perfect for such a nice day!

Okay, I don't think that your mom is weird, because I still like to take my son's photographs (he is 19 yrs old). That's all moms do, photographs their children, so when they grow older, they can look at all of those photos, and remember how all the beautiful thing...

You look so cool with that boot,I like how you layer your tees, and the bag? gosh, it's gorgeous. seems like you are ready for spring.

Magnolias are gorgeous too.
Cheers,
Elra

p.s. I think your mom is cool!

ohmygoodness that tree is beautiful!!!! It reminds me of the cherry blossom festival I went to in DC last April. You're mom is quite the photographer!!

Isabel said...

Are you wearing boxer shorts? Cause that would be really awesome. Love the red fingernails too!

Isabel ^^^ totally wearing boxer shorts. Thanks.

KEREN said...

Beautiful flowers, and I love your take on boxer shorts. Lovely outfit! ;)

The Clothes Horse said...

Oh, love the idea of boxer shorts...
Very Blossom and the magnolia tree is lovely too.

Style Magnet; Sara said...

I totally have a pair of cute purple plaid boxer shorts and I never thought to wear them out! Now I definitely will. Also, I'm strangely in love with that tee. Must go to Target.

filthy lust said...

Noelle Chantal said...

Emily said...

ahhh, i need that hat in two colors too!!! where did you get it?
that rose tree is soo romantic. I loves it.

Lily said...

Your mum is such an amazing photographer. You're so lucky to have such beautiful photos of yourself. (PS I'm so pleased you looked up Blossom. I TOTALLY wanted to be her when I was 11. Come to think of it... it's not just the hat, you generally dress a lot like her. Freaky!)

kaitlyn said...

xs said...

LOVE!

Amelia said...

The blossoms in the background are so gorgeous! I wish they were in bloom up here. I love the hat and the shorts.

My mom is just like your mom. When she takes my photo's she does all crazy kind of stuff. I'm happy she's supportive though! I mean, you'd think most moms would think it's crazy to take pictures of their daughters. But our moms are the best right! Love your style, especially your hat in this post. Hope to hear from you Stylish Wanderer!

much love
amy

Wanderlusting said...

Wow that tree brightened up my day. Gorgeous! Spring!

I had a 90's party back in December for my birthday (check blog for pics if curious) and wore what I thought was a nice F21 cloche, which quickly became the Blossom hat. Probably because it was a 90's party. And I stuck an actual blossom on it :P

NCM said...

The outfit is gorgeous and the blossom. I can't decide which of them is the most gorgeous

HoneyBunny said...

Flashes of Style said...

Wow! Most fantastic hat ever :)

That background is gorgeous too. So spring-like and so fresh.

Emmy said...

the blossoms are absolutely stunning! can't wait till the flowers here up north start blooming!

and no worries, my mom is equally crazed with getting a "perfect shot" (though I'm convinced no such thing exists). maybe it's a mom thing?

the golden fairy princess said...

these pictures are amazingly, fantastically, and totally beautiful. i love everything about them, i love your whole outfit (especially the shorts. and boots and hat.) and the background is so gorg it's hardly a background at all. love love these!

Ashford said...

yes blossom is immediately what I thought! I wish I could see more of the hat - it looks amazing.
