"Ahhhhh no wonder. Anthropologie.. one of my loves!" I told my mom. I want this hat so bad! I love how these floppy must-haves are flirty, sophisticated, and purely chic at the same time! And not only that, it sheilds your face perfectly from the sun!

The beautiful remnants of dandelions
A beautiful bud!
A Family of Daisies!
I found some wild strawberries under our stairway outside!
I love these. I'm not entirely sure what they are called, but I always find them in patches of weeds. I always ask my mom what these little purple flowers are, and she just calls it a weed with the rest of them, but I think they're beautiful. They are one fourth the size of my fingernail!

These shoes are not only for a good cause, they are also highly sustainable. Produced by Livity Eco-Textiles, these shoes are 73% hemp and 23% recycled bottle!
FYI: "Why choose Hemp?"
Hemp is chosen because it is one of the strongest natural fibers in the world. Hemp is grown naturally without the use of chemical pesticides and fertilizers. Hemp is naturally anti-microbial, allowing the wearer to feel fresh all day long. One hemp tee-shirt saves over 400 gallons of water compared to the regular or organic cotton tee.

Country French is defined by its elegant look, with a touch of nature and country mixed in. The French manor look can be yours by bringing in these elements: antiques, blue and yellow, florals and nature inspiration, gilded elements, rustic country-inspired details, trims, and finishes (fringe, lace), and decorative faux finishes (stucco, patina, distressed).

This photo is by Alicia Bock I absolutely love her photography! Her photos have a sense of nostalgia, and evoke memories of her favorite days. The coolest part is that shs is a self-taught photographer, and draws inspiration from her childhood and her own children.
I love the rustic look of this photo. It reminds me of being at my grandparent's house. They have an old shed where they keep the lawn mower and tractor. They also used to have an old bike that looked just like this one that belonged to my cousin except there was pink in place of the aqua. This photo was taken by Tim Irving. Check him out! His beautiful collections can be bought on Etsy!
These lovely paintings are done by Courtney Khail. Every element she uses to create her work are what make it unique. All of her work are hand drawn and illustrated on 100% cotton paper.I love the handcrafted look of her stationary, and the fact that they are hand done means that no two are the same! You can even get them custom made if you want a design that isnt found on her website (click here)
This stationary is produced by Night Owl Paper Goods. They are located 2 hours away from my hometown in Birmingham, Alabama. These handmade letterpress cards are "eco-chic wooden goodies" perfect for weddings, thank you notes, and personal "jotters."
These great stationary sets and notebooks are by Lotta Jansdotter. This company also puts out many other products with their prints such as bags, childrens wear and toys, and home accessories.
PRINTS AND PATTERNS
I love this swimsuit!
These prints and patterns are by designer Orla Kiely.
Prints from mocchi mocchi by Mochizuki. I love the earthy color palette and hand touched look. These card kits are wonderful in that the materials for the artwork to the packages are natural, making them 100% eco-friendly. Vegetable based ink is placed on 100% recycled paper, and the packaging is made from cornstarch.. way cool and innovative!
