I love a great garden, whether it’s an open field of wild blossoms or perennials in a funky pot. Whenever I get a chance, I’m outside with my trowel, tending to my plants. Our new Wildflowers collection was absolutely made for me! But it’s no secret: not all divas want to get dirty! Plus, the weather can put a damper on any perfect plans. So, I’ve gathered some fun ideas here for seeding your summer style, outdoors and especially in.
Rain or shine, dress up your hair with a bright and bold Peony Flower Hair Clip to match your favorite Wildflowers dress. Crafty divas can try to grow their own poppies by grabbing some supplies and following Lia Griffith’s blog for tips on DIY Tissue Paper Poppies. Clip one into your hair for a bold retro style, or fill a vase for a sweet homemade touch in any room that needs a pop of color.
Enjoy the sweet scents of a flower garden anywhere with some of our favorite candles, room sprays, and perfumes. Voluspa is known for their highly fragrant and long-lasting scents. The Printed Tin Candle in Gardenia Colonia is a sensational apricot and coconut wax candle featuring a double wick. This fragrance has a burn time of 50 hours, and the decorative container can easily be re-used for storing trinkets. Illume’s Demi Rollerball Perfume in Indica Lavender scent calls to mind a night-blooming orchard, featuring notes of herbal indica, bergamot, and sea salt mist, on a bed of cedarwood and patchouli. With a compact, vintage-inspired design, this perfume can be taken with you wherever you go!
New Orleans summers are notoriously hot hot hot. To enjoy a gorgeous garden when the weather won’t cooperate, don your favorite Wildflowers frock and visit the air conditioned Audubon Insectarium downtown! Featuring a serene, Asian-inspired garden, the popular Joe W. and Dorothy Dorsett Brown Foundation Butterflies in Flight exhibit offers guests a chance to interact with hundreds of free-flight butterflies in a lovely climate-controlled room. You’ll feel right at home with the purple butterfly headband and the sweet B.A.I.T Loraine heels! Dress up and see how Audubon Insectarium’s garden grows. More information can be found at their website, here.
My favorite way to cool down is with frozen goodies! Bring the garden party indoors when you make some gorgeous and tasty homemade popsicles featuring fresh fruit and flowers! The edible blooms make these ice pops a pretty, refreshing treat!
Well divas, I hope this post has helped you tend to your summer style and activities. Our team is here to make sure you look good and have fun doing it! Til next time!
