It was my birthday two Sundays ago, and on that lovely afternoon I was so happy and surprised to see my dad presenting me with this beautiful bouquet of sunflowers. He knows that they've always been one of my favorite flowers, and when he handed them to me, he said one of the most beautiful things I've ever heard.
Sunflowers have a beautiful face, but a strong stem. Other flowers have a weak stem, and they easily bend and break. But the sunflower is unapologetically bold. They stand tall, bright, grand, and unyielding.
My dad calls me his "sunflower", and for some reason that has always stuck with me when I needed it most. The color yellow has always symbolized life to me. I don't have nearly enough of it in my closet, but I always feel happier when I see it. I love layering this blouse for a pop of sunny yellow under my sailor stitch sweater, and I added on some classic yet neutral extras like these vegan patent flats with a tortoiseshell bow.
I made some subtle changes to my blog's design on Sunday! They're not super noticeable, but I think they streamline the site and make it look much more clean! I moved the tabs to the top of the blog, and also revised my about me to include my vegan story!
