OOTD: peony dream

Photo & Video Sharing by SmugMugPhoto & Video Sharing by SmugMug

i have been waiting forever it seems for peonies to find their way to Virginia.
one of the perks of living on the west coast is that these beautiful blooms are available year round.
my friend kate is a florist and as soon as she got these stems in she texted me.
peonies are my favorite. i love studying them. looking at each petal. drawing out each layer. i am very fond of these coral ones. so so beautiful!

  3. beautiful flowers, very pretty :)


  4. Absolutely gorgeous! The title peony dream is very apt. You look so dreamy and enchanting! The black accentuates the floral print even more, which I think is really chic. You take the most amazing pictures, by the way! Love this OOTD!
