Highway Wildflowers


The wildflowers in Texas have shifted with the rising temperature from blue bonnets to sunflowers.  I'm going to have to go find another hidden highway to stop by and take pictures, as sunflowers are my favorite flower, quite possibly of all flora in the world.  I'm not sure if this will be harder or easier as my schedule shifts to earlier hours in the upcoming couple of weeks - working late made for great morning excursions.  Thank goodness for extended day light, as I'll be off at five like normal people for two months.










Dress: vintage square dance dress from Style Station, an Indiana recommendation
Flats: BCBG
Locket: pilfered, like so much of my jewelry, from my grandmother's bureau (with her blessing)

I've been debating getting this dress altered in some way to make it more wearable on a daily basis, but I can't bring myself to take it to anyone who would lay scissors on it.

These photos are stunning. They really make me a bit homesick though! Doesn't that guy at the Style Station remind you of the dude!?

Sunflowers are my favorite too. How can you not like something that faces the sun.
