Dogwood and Magnolia

I'd been waiting to wear this Trashy Diva dress for months! When the Dogwood collection came out, things were still really snowy here. But I knew the magnolia trees in Highland Park would be the perfect backdrop, so I patiently put off taking these photos until they were in bloom. They're mostly gone now, but I'm glad I was able to capture them while they lasted!

I'm absolutely in love with this print, but now I wish I had gotten the skirt instead of the Alexa dress. It's really a cute style, but since side zips are my arch nemesis, I'm hoping I can eventually find the dogwood skirt in my size. This collection is nearly sold out online, so I'll have to keep a sharp eye on eBay...

...Or hope that they might just have some at one of the Trashy Diva boutiques... because Ashley and I just booked our girls' trip to NOLA for this August!! I'm SO excited! We planned to go last summer, but had to put it off because of my new job/apartment. It's a trip that's long overdue. I can't wait for us to plan out our itinerary (i.e., where we are going to eat). If you have any favorite places in New Orleans, we could definitely use your recommendations!

Did you all have a nice Mother's Day? The weather is supposed to be beautiful this week, which is ideal for the Lilac Festival! I'm determined to get my fill of my favorite flowers. After a few weeks of chilly, in-between weather, I'm so happy that spring is finally here!

Have a great start to your week!

  5. I love the pair of dogwood and turquoise! It's literally the best shade of turquoise too!
