Late Summer Wildflowers
One of my obsessions lately has been the late summer wildflowers I see blooming everywhere. Coneflowers, Queen Anne’s Lace, and Sunflowers are my favorite! If I’m on a walk or a drive and see a field of them, it’s hard for me not to stop and snap a few pictures. They are especially breathtaking in the long sunsets we have this time of year. Nothing beats that golden light!
Luckily, I knew of a wildflower garden near us and just had to visit one day. I knew it would be in full bloom and I wasn’t disappointed. The pink and purple coneflowers were everywhere. Their hue was so vibrant it is hard to describe!
Can we also talk about how I love the idea of a wildflower garden? I love the overgrown patches and the old fence. Something about the unkemptness of it was just perfect for the late-July summer heat and humidity. This is definitely inspiration for a garden I want to have someday! Like I said, I’m obsessed!
I loved these cone flowers in all shades of pink and purple!
Surviving the Late Summer Heat
Last week, I talked about how incredibly hot it had been in Illinois in a blog about a complete scenic FAIL. Well, the heat hasn’t let up yet so I’ve still been getting creative with style. I’ve been wearing this white tee everywhere. In fact, you can see it in back-to-back Instagram posts here and here. Sometimes you just find something you really love! It is so light-weight and silky. I think all of my white tees are from the Loft at this point!
Since we are talking about obsessions, I have to admit that I have finally hopped on the hat bandwagon. I love this one from Brixton because it comes in sizes from small to extra large! I have an oversized head and have avoided hats until now because the one-size-fits-all styles don’t fit me at all. I’m not afraid to admit that I ordered the XL and it fits perfectly. Who would’ve guessed?! If I can find more hats with sizes I will start cultivating a little collection, I’m sure. Just in time for fall!
Have you tried the hat trend yet? What are your favorite brands?
