Give me odorous at sunrise a garden of beautiful flowers where I can walk undisturbed.

Outfit Details: Dress: Vintage/Flower: Etsy/Hat: UO/Socks: Topshop/Shoes: Thrifted


One thing I am positively sure of when I have my own house, I am determined to have a garden. Whether big or small, I do not care. I just want to master the art of the green thumb and wake up to this in my back yard every summer morning. Speaking of houses, my husband and I just bought one. It's our first and our very own. I couldn't be more excited and feel more blessed.

Anything you darlings would like to master the art of?

Happy Monday my dears!



  1. Congratulations on the new house! I hope that you manage to make the garden as beautiful as the one in the photos. Lovely outfit!

  2. Congrats on buying a house! Wow, that's exciting! And here I am excited about renting my own first apartment(with my bf). Up til now I've always lived with lots of other people...

    You look so lovely. The socks are amazing!

  3. EEEP! I love love love your adorable socks and the way you styled this outfit. I think a garden would be a lovely thing to have.

  9. Congrats to you and your hubby on buying a home :)

    I'm not sure if there is anything besides painting that I would like to master. This is so random, but I have always wanted to be good at making those little origami animals and things. I was never good at it!

    PS. Your socks are too cute!

  10. Such beautiful scenery! I love your darling hat and whimsical socks. My grandmother has a huge garden on their farm that she tends to all by herself-and she's 70 years young! I hope to be like her as I grow older :)

  11. Your hat is so lovely! Did it come just that way or did you decorate it yourself? And the socks+wedges are adorable!

  12. What a great place to shoot Marisa!! This pictures are retro magic.... the hat is perfect - and I love your fruit socks- how cute.. <3

  13. Congratulations on the house dear. It's a really amazing accomplishment!!! I hope you'll share some decor photos with us.


  14. oooh a new house!
    i hope the moving process goes smoothly
    and that garden looks pretty perfect :)

  15. You're so cute! Love this outfit <3 And the socks are awesome :)

  16. So good to hear about the new house! I am loving the whimsical feeling to your photographs. They look magical my dear! And your dress and hat are just the most adorable summer items. Can't wait to see your (future) garden :-)

  17. Congratulations you guys! What an exciting step :)

    I hope you get the garden you wish for! I too have romantic dreams of growing what I eat!

    These pictures are simply whimsical!

  18. These photos are so dreamy... Almost like you're in a secret garden. I'm just crazy over your outfit: it's really beyond darling! Boater hats and sandals with socks, and little vintage dresses always seem to go perfectly together <3

  19. those have to be the cutest socks ever made! you look adorable! i'd like to master the art of contentment more than anything, hee hee, but a green thumb would be really nice too. (i do a garden every year and every year it does horribly!) Xx

  20. how are you that adorable? gahhh!

  21. What beautiful photos! I especially love your socks - such a sweet little detail! And congrats on your new home! :)

    sorelle in style

  22. This look is so darling and timeless. You look lovely. Love everything, the hat, the dress, the location! x

  23. I love your sandals with those socks! <3 Adorable!

    I would love to have a garden, but, unfortunately, I have no green thumb! My great great grandfather could "stick a stick in the ground and make it grow" but I can't even keep normal plants alive. I am determined to learn how to someday, though. :D

  24. I adore your outfit. The dress, hat and socks+sandals are lovely!

  25. this is so cute and i love your socks
    I would love for you to check out my blog

I love the idea of gardens, too. But I'm far too lazy to keep up with the whole watering/ taking care of the flowers thing.

  27. Woohoo congrats on the new house sweetie, I can't wait to see photos!!

    And the moment I saw your socks, I was like haha my dearie has the same taste as me! I was eyeing that exact pair of shoes on! ;)
