More urbane than urban is my latest play of flora and fauna. I love mixing it the way Mother Nature does - with florals + animal prints. You can see some previous incarnations here, here, and here. This time however, I think I lost some urban edge and added spinster spice. There is nothing edgy or dangerous to my look, just look how cute this '80's floral sundress is! Throwing on that sweater like a good grannie somehow gave me suburban vibes. Which looks tame and well, nice. As in, less likely to pull a switchblade on ya, more likely to serve up some ice cold lemonade.
Some of you have ask me if this is my backyard. Well, it's the yard that greets my front door. I rent a basement flat (seems to be my destiny) and so i'ts the backyard of to folks I rent from. And it's a great little lush spot, as is the entire neighborhood I live in. My 'hood is so lovely, that I am constantly walking past my block because my attention is distracted by flowers and blossoming dogwood trees + lilac bushes and front yard veggie gardens- I'm losing count of the times that I sort of lose myself before I make it home. In fact just happened today. Again.
Something that happened last week- you will find me featured last Friday over at Cameron's blog. Please check out our interview: I sound so wise and clever!
Cameron's blog is: 33 Avenue Miquelon, so check it out and feel free to leave her a sweet comment. Rawr!
