pick the rare flower

I thought it might be time to take a break from my spring favorites for a minute and do an outfit post again.  I also think it's safe to say that spring has officially crept up on Los Angeles; though it is still chilly at night and in the early morning hours when the sun is in hidding.  The flowers in our garden have begun to bloom and "the Brit's" hay-fever is certain to take hold of him any day now.  I will say, that is one of the few negatives about canyon living... allergies...when it blooms here, boy does it bloom. That and the fact that everything gets dirty fairly quickly (especially...ehem...freshly washed cars & freshly swept pathways).  I suppose it's a fair compromise for living in such a beautiful place.

I've been trying to stick to my plan by wearing lighter hues so perhaps I'm willing it to be spring with my secret powers? and speaking of powers... I decided, on a whim, to dust off my flower crown - wearing it always makes me feel a bit magical. It has made a few appearances on this blog which you may or may not remember and here it is again.
outfit details: 
sweater + belt - h&m 
skirt - wasteland
shoes - vintage (dead stock)
flower crown - self-made

musical notes: California - Joni Mitchell* 

(*yes, Joni again, because I feel like she should show up more often on a blog named after one of her tunes, non?)

You like like une petite poupée, especially with the pouty face! The outfit is perfect. Spring colors suit you well.

P.S.--The song and your description of the canyon really makes me wanna visit. You are so lucky!

@anonymous I've had the socks for a few years and I honestly can't remember where I go them from. My best guest would be Urban outfitters?
