The Simply Luxurious Life®: Luxurious Lavender

Luxurious Lavender

The colors that the much anticipated spring styles welcome into our closets are a helpful boost to one’s already brightening mood.  One color I have fallen in love with is lavender (two mentions of lavender have recently been mentioned in my blog – here and here as further evidence of this fact).  So for a bit of window shopping on today’s Saturday Style, I thought I’d display some lovely images of none other than . . . lavender. Enjoy!

And I’m off!  Nothing energizes me more than a day open for all sorts of possibilities to wander in.

I recently found Zac Posen’s gorgeous draped satin-jersey blouse on Net-A-Porter.  Click on the image or the link to window shop a little closer.  Who knows?  It might just be that essential spring item you’ve been looking for.

Allow lavender to be a bit more dramatic.

The lavender in the Pacific Northwest is getting closer each and every day to blooming, and oh, how I can’t wait.  This particular image is absolutely surreal.

I recently learned of a Lavender Farm nearby – Blue Mountain Lavender Farm and am anxious to visit.  Not only do they have rows upon rows of lavender, but they have lavender bouquets, culinary lavender, dried lavender, sachets and recipes for bringing more lavender into your life than you would probably ever know what to do with. Once I do have a gander at their farm, I’ll be sure to share pictures.

Yes, I realize there is no apparent lavender in this photograph, but with all of that walking you’re embarking on while window shopping, your lovely toes deserve to look and feel special.  Why not pop on over to Net-A-Porter and pick up a quality pair of nude flats from Lanvin?  (patent leather ballerina flats)

Have a lovely Saturday whatever you might be doing. Tah Tah!

You may not realize, but the lavender image above was taken by Christian Rycx and should not be used without purchasing the rights to display the photo. The Oregon Lavender Association has purchased the right to use the photo. We would appreciate you removing the photo unless you have arranged with Mr Rycx to display it. We would be happy to provide you with another gorgeous photo that you can use in its place! Thank you for your consideration.
