Outfit: Apple Blossom

It's apple blossom season on Thomas's family's farm. I first saw their orchards two Octobers ago when the trees were loaded with apples and everyone in the family was busy harvesting. Now the trees have a completely different look--pale pink blossoms to rival any cherry blossom festival when the rows upon rows are fully in bloom. In a week or two the blossoms will be gone and the orchards will be changed again.

This is a dress made for twirling. As much as I liked it when I chose it for the color and shape, I like it so much more after wearing it. Many dresses are the opposite; you love the way they look, but they don't feel half as comfortable on or awkwardly ride up when you wear tights, etc, etc. This one just moves so beautifully as you move; the skirt rippling in little waves. It deserves to be worn while dancing--even if it's only barefoot dancing at the beach!

I'm absolutely in love with this blogpost. It's funny to see your post about Apple Blossoms in Ireland when I had just recently posted about Cherry Blossoms in Traverse City, Michigan. The color of the blouse that I wore in my outfit post was quite similar to that of your dress here. I LOVE IT! Great minds think alike ;) Speaking of your dress, it brings back memories of my childhood for me--playing, dancing and laughing in a similar such dress. When I was younger, I would play dress up as Jane Austen in a dress similar to this one, only longer and with a little bit more fluff. It was the dress of a princess. To see you wear this one (and the neckline's are almost identical) makes me nostalgic for the days of dress-up.

Here's a tip: Wearing a slip will stop your skirts and dresses from riding up all weird. :)

It works, I've been doing this my whole life. Give it a try.

The necklace is lovely. Kind of reminds me of Arwen's in Lord of the Rings.

Between living in the semi-tropics and advertising that's constantly rushing us onward to the next shopping season, it's been easy to forget that there are still places in the world where Spring is at its lushest. The blossoms reminded me of a round our girls choir sang when I was 13:

Sweet the evening air of May,
Soft my cheek caresses.
Sweet the unseen lilac spray,
With it's scented blessing.
White and ghostly, in the gloom,
Shine the apple trees in bloom -
Apple trees in bloom!

google says it's of hungarian folk origins...

I really love dresses that are easy to wear, and yours looks like such a sweet, floaty one. The color is so fabulous with the apple blossoms, they compliment each other beautifully. :) ❤
