lilac season.

It's lilac season in the midwest! Lilacs are my favorite flowers and I really missed them when we lived in Charleston. Our current house has two large lilac bushes in the yard, and they smell amazing! Our bushes have light purple flowers, but I love seeing a variety of purple and white lilacs when I walk around the neighborhood. Here are a few lilac inspired shopping picks:
I would love to have a lilac painting for our bedroom so I could have flowers in the house year-round. I love this crossbody bag -- the color is so light and feminine. This a-line floral dress would be perfect for a summer wedding or party. H occasionally wears pastels, so I think he could totally pull off a lilac diagonal striped tie. Vi won't tolerate headbands anymore (so sad), but her hair is getting long so I'd like to try hair clips. I'm also loving this ballerina inspired swimsuit, bear hoodie, and ruffle shorts -- all in pretty shades of purple. Anthropologie and Candlefish in Charleston sells Lulie Wallace tin candles and the lilac scent is an obvious favorite. Jcrew has some fun lilac pieces for my closet: 3" chino shortscece suede ballet flats, and st. james slouchy lilac and navy stripe shirt (because you can never have too many stripes!) And finally the 'English Lavender' and 'Fancy' butter london nail polishes would be a great mani/pedi combo for summer.

Are you a lilac fan?
