Loads of lilacs

If you couldn't tell from the title, you now know that my favorite flower (and Rochester's favorite, coincidentally) is the lilac!  They're pretty abundant around here, though I'm not sure whether this explains why we have a festival devoted to them, or whether their presence is a result of that devotion.  Regardless, I'm thankful for their presence (though it's always too short-lived!), because they're so gorgeous and smell so lovely!  Lilac is a huge color in fashion this season, and I couldn't be happier.

Outfit Details:
Paris Dress in Lovely Lilac: Bernie Dexter (also available in other styles)
White flats: ASOS
Necklace: Forever 21 (old)

I got this dress back in October for my birthday (as a present to myself, ha) and though I wore it once in the chilly and damp October weather, I almost couldn't wait to wear it when it actually made sense (seasonally-speaking)!  I think it's one of the most flattering dresses I own.  Leave it to Bernie!

We went to the Lilac Festival (on the very last day) to see my dad's band play, which was fun and makes me a very proud daughter.  Although the lilacs were on their way out, we still got to smell lots of them and see all the different varieties (there are more than you'd think!).  It was very crowded and I ate too much, but I'm still glad we went!  

Have a lovely Monday!

  1. Oh my gosh, Sammi, you have so many cute dresses. First the sunflower one, now this lovely lilac one. Oh, and your "lovely" necklace suits it perfectly.

    A Lilac Festival... I've never heard of that before, but it sounds pretty enchanting being able to go around and sniff flowers and consume delicious food. I can see why it's your favorite flower. Mine's gotta be a hydrangea. :)
