budding amish

Skirt, Cardigan & Necklace- Thrifted; Blouse- Smart Set; Shoes- The Bay (Gifted)

My week of floral pants may have drawn to a close, but I still have many other flowery clothes in my wardrobe (my second favourite print, next to leopard!) I love the jewel tones in this thrifted skirt and I played up the matronly length for a look that I like to call the budding Amish!

"Flowers... are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world." (Ralph Waldo Emerson)


  1. You're as pretty as a flower! I am loving that top! So gorgeous :D

  2. What beautiful colors. You pick great clothes. I wish I could go shopping with you someday!

  3. Super pretty colors! I love the necklace you have on too. It really makes a statement!

  4. I know this was asked in your last post,

    But I would have to say that this is my favourite floral pattern of the week,

    Once again another great thrifted find!!

    Happy Canada Day!

  5. Floral is a wonderful print - I agree completely! And this skirt is no exception. The colors are so fun and I think the length is wonderful. The modern midi skirt, yes? Lovely outfit!


  6. oh those shades are gorgeous together! I love lilac and I love mint and the emerald green necklace is so beautiful as well! and we have pretty similar taste in favourite patterns. I also like floral in addition to leopard but I like animal and bird print as well :P

  7. That floral dress looks so amazing. Love that necklace!

  8. The shape of the skirt and the bright colours make it way more than matronly! And I love the ruffled blouse!

  11. I think you pull off this look quite well! the skirt isn't matronly the way you've styled it, it looks quite modern :)

  12. Very cute! Love the colours in the skirt!

  13. lol @ the Amish remark
    i lived in Philly a short way a way from the Amish community there

  14. emily, you look like you belong in a pretty picture book. :) i adore the color scheme, the greenery, the elements of gold, & the femininity!


One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
