The California Poppy

Public Display of Apparel1 Comment
Some of you may or may not be aware, but the official state flower of California is the golden poppy. I (Cristina) learned this in elementary school, but really never made the connection until this year. Throughout the spring season millions of flowers bloom all up and down the state, from multi colored wildflowers in Carlsbad to the poppies in Antelope Valley, which is where we visited

By now, most of these flowers have already bloomed and are no longer there. But if you are interested in knowing more or visiting some of these locations next year you can check out the  link here!

We had been wanting to visit a flower field since we started our blog, and this year it finally happened. After some planning and outfit styling we headed out towards Lancaster to have our epic photo shoot. We were aware that there were going to be winds 🌬️, but were not prepared for the 25-30 mph winds that we experienced! But being the troopers that we are, we decided to go through with the shoot as planned. We went on a Saturday, so we did expect there to be a lot of visitors, however the amount of people on the trails was quite overwhelming. We drove past the crowds until we found a more secluded location.

Trying to make the best of the situation we made the wind work for us, you can definitely see the motion in our hair but mostly in Elissa’s dress. 😊

I decided to almost blend in with the poppy fields haha 😆. I got this dress a couple of years ago and surprisingly haven’t worn it much. It’s great for different occasions; I’ve used it for graduations, and its also super cute for a cocktail or brunch! As you all know, I love pleated flowy fabrics... it’s so fun to twirl in them. Using hair clips is very trendy right now, and I especially prefer the ones with 💎. These are from the Sincerely Jules collection with Scunci. I’m obsessed with all the designs from the collection and like how accessible and affordable they are. I got mine from Target.

You can’t see them much here, but I’m wearing tan sandals with a block heel. I wear them ALL the time and have featured them in past posts. I love them so much I have them in black as well. I borrowed this bag from my roomie, Aimee, its SO cute! Circle rattan bags have been trending since last year, but what makes this one so unique is that its has white weaved throughout the bag.

I wanted to wear a white dress for this shoot because I figured it would really pop 🌼with the beautiful orange backdrop. I was inspired by the natural look and went with that theme. My dress is made out of linen which is a really breathable fabric and includes these cute wooden buttons. I especially like that there are ties that you can connect in the back. I paired it with my bamboo basket bag that Elissa brought back for me from Peru, so you know its legit! I had been wanting pom pom sandals for a bit now and finally found some that I really liked on Amazon! Can’t forget about the accessories, I don’t typically wear brown shades, but I think i am going to start wearing these more often. It’s really all about finding the right shape for your face. And last but not least, my favorite earrings lately are from  Humans Before Handles , shout out to Ashley for the gift! She has an amazing collection that you should definitely check out.
