Sometimes the backdrop makes the outfit...this was just something I wore to a waffles brunch at my house, but I was determined to get some pictures with those sunflowers before they died!

Do feel free to enter the giveaway below!

these pics are so pretty. i absolutely love sunflowers- theyre not dainty and fragile like most flowers. they're towering and powerful.

Your blouse is adorable! Sunflowers are always so wonderful. I went to a vineyard in Sonoma California earlier this summer and they had the tallest sunflowers I've ever seen!

I adore sunflowers! My dad used to grow them in our backyard when I was little... they used to grow to be over 6 feet tall. :)

this is kinda cheesy but back when i was in uni i got really sick and was stuck in bed for a few days and my sister sent me sunflowers with a note that said...you are my sunshine...they even stuck a few lemons in the arrangement...all that yellow and the note cheered me up. lovely flowers and purse

Totally agree! The backdrop can make or break some outfits (as can the setting) this goes perfectly with your bag!

Ah, sunflowers. We've grown them in the past, but not this year for whatever reason. Hmph.

I love this outfit, Emily. Its simple elegance is rather perfect for a late summer's day.
