I think I’ve mentioned 93849023480 times how much I love Spring and the lovely blooms adorning the tree branches around this time of year on this blog…but I can’t say it enough! I wish they could stay around all through the year. You just can’t see them and not feel instantly happy and amazed by their beauty (whether your allergies make you suffer or not!) Maybe it’s because they’re so romantic and girly. Anyway, I’m sort of channeling their vibe with this look…call it inspired if you will. Putting romantic and girly pieces together like this cute-as-can-be silky bolero (that I rescued out of a dollar bin at the Brooklyn Flea) and this flowy skater skirt just felt right. I just had to top it off with more flowers on my head…I couldn’t help myself.

And ya know what else comes to mind when pondering the beauty of blooms? These guys.

No one (No one I tell you!) is better in the business at illustrating blooms and blossoms and bushels and other B-words than Rifle Paper Co. This husband wife team features hand-painted illustrations and lettering that is both nostalgic and timeless. I’m most familiar with their paper goods like cards, stationery, and calendars, but their products extend to coasters, recipe boxes, even iPhone cases! I do not believe there is another paper goods brand in all the land that I’m more crushed out on. I’ll take one of everything please!
