There’s something about wildflowers, daises especially, that make me think of summer. When I went to the flower market (this is my favorite one here in Seattle) this month, I didn’t really know what I wanted… it was more about whatever felt right and of the season. I immediately saw the daisies and got inspired. These tiny little blooms have always felt very darling to me with their straightforward simplicity.
The flowers I used in this arrangement are:
- feverfew, but I always think of them as daisies!
- scabiosa – the creamy white blossoms with frilly petals.
- maidenhair ferns.
- dianthus green trick – those funny little green pom poms.
- alchemilla – the greenery with little bits of yellow on the ends.
- plus, a few poppies!
Despite the diminutive size of the feverfew, I knew it was time to try my hand at a larger flower arrangement. I gathered up a pewter trophy-inspired vase that I found in the studio (here are two similar options from Terrain and West Elm). I feel like the vase itself makes quite the statement, allowing the flowers to remain gentle and sweet.
The maidenhair ferns kind of stole my heart. They are just so delicate, but also feel quite modern thanks to their super-skinny black stems.
When selecting my outfit for this shoot, I knew I wanted it to be simple and clean, but also really comfortable and airy — just like the arrangement! Taylor Stitch sent over their latest design, the Katherine shirt with cornflower blue summer stripes, and I knew it would be totally perfect for this day. The shirt’s pre-sale just wrapped, but it will be available for purchase the last week of July. In the meantime, I recommend looking at the Caroline shirt, a beautiful summer-y weight chambray available now for purchase.
More flower inspiration, right this way.
