Bonjour! I’m currently writing this from France, where we arrived last Friday morning. We’ve been fully embracing the Provence lifestyle with daily trips to the market, antique shopping, exploring the hilltop towns, sipping on lots of rosé, and eating way too much bread and cheese. Oh, and the roses. I can’t get enough of them! I’ve been posting our days on Instagram and Instagram stories, so head on over if you want to travel along with us! In the meantime, I’m sharing this post from a few weeks ago when we were in Idaho at our family’s ranch (you might remember last summer when we were there). We were driving to the ranch from the airport with Thomas’s grandma and we kept seeing bushes and bushes of purple everywhere. We asked her what it was and she said it was lilac blooming all around! Of course we got all excited and started plotting a trip to find the biggest tree of them.
It didn’t take us very long to find this monster of a lilac tree- they were everywhere! The colors are so naturally bold and the smell is so fragrant. I had brought along this market backpack that I had found at Out of Hand in Mt. Pleasant and luckily, Terrain has the same one available online. We picked a few bunches of the fresh lilac, filling up the backpack as much as we could and brought them back to the house for the dining room table.
I’ve also been loving everything Reformation has been coming out with this Spring/Summer. So many pretty, lightweight linen dresses. I’m wearing this green and white striped one here, but I also have this white one I wore here, this pink floral one and this neutral linen one I brought with me to France. I also think this blue and white one is so darling and it also comes in a buttery yellow color. They’re the kind of dresses that you’ll want to live in all season long.
