easter bonnet

Ok, so it's not Easter, this is hardly an Easter Bonnet, and I don't even have a basket, but something about a field full of crocuses makes me expect a pastel procession of bunnies and chicks at any point. Or maybe that ad that's on all the bus stops has just gone to my head.

I'm amassing a nice collection of New York pics which should start trickling onto the blog soon, but I thought I'd share these shots of springtime in London first. I didn't even realize London got spring, since during the year I spent in Glasgow spring more or less passed us by. But it was gorgeous the last couple of weeks, which made me extra sad to face the biting winds that are racketing New York at the moment.

I'm having an excellent time but am completely incoherent tonight after a packed day of wandering the city. More to follow in days to come!

These photos are so lovely! I hope you're enjoying your time in New York, despite this absolutely horrendous weather.

dimi said...

You look very beautiful! And what a beautiful field of flowers!! Have a lovely weekend!

Kallie, Happy Honey and Lark said...

See you tonighttt!!!!
You look so springy, too bad its snowing here :( at least your florals in a garden pictures are there to cheer me up!

Lesley said...

I love the florals! I'm so jealous of your green grass. Boston has snow today: April fools? It's so disheartening, but you're a reminder that spring is coming soon! :)

CAITLIN said...

this is so gorgeous! i LOVE the location and the fact that your dress doesn't match the flowers but is still floral... so it looks even more like a wild field! amazing :)

can't wait to see what you've been getting up to in new york!

Amber Blue Bird said...

you look so pretty amidst those blooms :)

Emily, Ruby Slipper Journeys said...

@Caitlin: I confess that I don't have a dress to match every species of flower! ; )

deppa said...

¿ por qué todo es tan dulce y romántico en tus fotos?
Me encantan :) te ves muy linda.

(desde ahora intentaré esribir comentarios no complicados, aun desconozco tu nivel de español ;)

Nos vemos :)

Katie @ Beautifully Pure said...

What a lovely dress! It looks great with all the crocuses! I wish it was warmer here. :(

How are you liking America?? Next time you have to come to Chicago so we can meet!! Come in late April and you can maybe even meet Jack! :D

Emily, Resplendent Tranquility said...

OH MY. I've never seen so many crocuses all in one place. I'd probably keel right over if I really happened upon such a scene.

Nice to see the shoes in action. What a dream they are. I loovvee the third photo. The trail of movement is really cool.

From Suns To Moons said...

A floral dress on an arched patch of crocus? Words can't describe the beauty at play here.

Anything but Bland said...

oh my goodness! feels so much like spring! beauuutiful photos, woman!

love, polly :)

Lucy, Dear Fish said...

Those shoes are so incredible! I miss Kurt Geiger...I used to have tons of KG shoes, but now I no longer live in the UK, sad!
In the second to last picture you almost blend in with the flowers, I love it!

SMASH said...

What! Those flowers dont even look real they look so pretty. I'm excited to see your NY photos...taken with the new cam? eh eh? ;-)

Annebeth said...

haha I love how you framed that first picture to make it appear as if you're in some idyllic field instead of near some houses :D that first pic = STUNNING and I want to wear your outfit right now.

Stef / Diversions said...

Stunning hat :) Love the shape and the ribbon on it :) Lovely outfit!

I can't imagine Glosgow weather. Sunderland was enough of a downer in that respect and that is so much further South.

L. of Hey Nancy said...

Gorgeous outfit. Blooming marvellous (sorry about the cheesy pun!) I love your hat too.

sojourned in style said...

so wonderful! the field of flowers are just precious and a much needed reprieve from the biting cold. adore your dresss and shoes!

Molly said...

Ummmmm, I just gasped when I saw those shoes! They are amazing. And that's my kind of Easter bonnet (even if you don't think it is one!). Your look is spring-y and delightful. You look lovely.


Leaving the House in THIS?!?!

Meg! said...

Ack, I love this so much! That dress and the hat are so cute and yes, totally Eastery in a good way. But those shoes, they're my favorite!

Monique said...

Loving the floral paired with the floral grounds. Today was quite a beautiful day, tiny winks of spring. Looking forward to your pics. Again, I'm do glad we were able to link up in real time , kinda felt like we broke the rules of the Matrix. Great times all around.

Monique said...

*so glad (damn phones)

Ashley said...

These pics are STUNNING. The first is my favorite, maybe EVER, of you. Love the contrast of the dress with the flowers. GORGEOUS!

Shybiker said...

Love the pictures of you on Kallie's blog. I hope you post more, if you have them.

Emily, Ruby Slipper Journeys said...

@Shybiker: I definitely will! I don't know why she didn't wait for mine before making a post!
