Fields of Gold

Sunflowers are the happiest flowers.

So gorgeous this time of year.

I love watching them as they nod their heads. Saying hello to Fall and goodbye to Summer.

And I think come spring, I'll want to walk in fields of gold...

Happy yellow florals have sprung up all over the Spring 2012 runways...

At Oscar de la Renta, I imagine them waving against a bright blue sky.

At Erdem they call to mind a lovely garden affair.

Do you think that if I put a handful of sunflower seeds in my pocket this Fall, they would sprout into a gorgeous frock when the sun shines in the Spring?

  4. Oooh these sunflowers ARE happy! I always love how they create such a friendly feeling! Oooh they look lovely with the purple. Nice sunflower shots! Lol your comment about Noel Coward chic, totally true! Adds an even chic-er element when you throw that concept into the mix!
