I was going to be a good blogger and follow a schedule but then life got in the way. Give me a few days, or maybe a couple weeks and I'll get things straightened out. Thanks for understanding.

The Secret Garden - Thoughtful Third Thursday

Selah of A Bibliophile's Style and Maricel of My Closet Catalog run a monthly link up called Thoughtful Third Thursday. I've seen it but not participated till now. But I'm trying to be a better blogger so I thought I'd give it a shot when I saw that the prompt for June was Favorite Childhood Read.

And if you couldn't guess from the post title, one of my very favorites was The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgsen Burnett. I read it so many times that my book full on fell apart. It's been about 15 years since I've read it and my copy of the book is buried in a box in the basement so I had to use Goodreads to find a quote to share. But this was the one that stuck out the most:

“If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden.”

So I decided to play off the garden theme and wear my floral maxi skirt and some flower earrings. I added the hat with a scarf tied around it because I felt like it was a nice, lady-like addiction. The whole thing sort of felt like it had a Garden Tea Party vibe going on. At least in my opinion.

If you want to see the earrings close up you can check out the ensemble page at Go Chic or Go Home.

Till next time.
