Colourful Stripes and Polka Dot Wedges

To add a bit of Spring into my outfit this past weekend I wore a colourful striped tank top.

It was cold in the morning and hot in the afternoon so I added a simple white jacket for our morning adventures. We went to the local farmer’s market which sells everything from herbs and soaps to trees and gardening tools. My husband was in search of a tree to replace an old Japanese Maple that had died over the winter. He’s like Mr. Miyagi when it comes to gardening. I however can only keep a cactus alive. Unfortunately the tree selection at the market was horrible, but I did find a unique hanging plant that I had to have. It’s buds look like mini Chinese lanterns, and I’ve added a photo of it below. Have you ever seen a plant like this, or found a unique plant in the past? Do you like gardening? I don’t, but I love having plants and flowers around.

Jacket: No label (vintage) Similar Here.  Top: Missoni (old.)  Jeans: Vintage Levis.  Wedges: Coach (old.)  Bag: Sun and Sand (found at TJMaxx.)  Sunglasses: Rayban.

I hope you are having a great start to your week! Thank you for visiting!

  7. I am like you, I managed to kill a poinsettia which is a plant which lives forever. LOL! I wish I have a green thumb but alas, I kill all the herb plants that was given to me last year too. :-(

    I really like the polka dots wedges! It looks simple from the front but so pretty when I see it from the side!

    1. I love herb plants for cooking and can't keep them alive either. I've even tried the Aerogarden and that didn't work. Thank you Shireen :)

  12. This is such a lovely outfit, Lili! I adore your top, the colors are so pretty and vibrant! I also really love those polka dot wedges, I don't believe I've ever seen a pair like these before! Haha, your husband has a good hand then, mine does, too! The last few times I was in charge of keeping up with our plants they all died. All of his, on the other hand, are still thriving and look amazing! I love the plant you picked up, it's so pretty and I've never seen it before either. Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you have an amazing week ahead, lovely!

  29. You know you barely do much to keep the cactus alive, it can survive on it's on...haha! Your husband is truly the hard worker but am glad that hanging plant will help you join him in the gardening department more. I grew up in a farm so I've done a bit of gardening. Your outfit looks amazing and the shoes, top and bag scream spring, you slayed this outfit dear!

    1. My cactus actually shrivels up if I forget to water it for too long. But once I notice and water it, it comes back to life, unlike the other ones I forget to water, haha. Thank you Meron :)

  30. Cute outfit - I really like the shirt and your bag is adorable. I'm not a gardener, but I DO like seeing plants and flowers in other people's gardens. I feel like nothing stays alive well at my house. haha

  50. I've never seen shoes with polka dots on the actual wedge heel before- these are so cool! I like how they really compliment that pinky-purple tone in the top too :) Looking gorgeous as always! That plant is really pretty too- I can totally see how it reminds you of lanterns
