Blending In or Standing Out?

Magnolias blooming at Arboretum DC

I feel that it’s a major blogger achievement when I happen to find a location that perfectly matches my outfit. And it’s not only about adjusting the shade of your purse to asphalt, but rather wearing a print that somehow connects with the background. Like this affordable but such cute dress I picked for my trip to Washington DC—don’t you feel that it literally copies magnolia blooms in the background?

Same story with my new botanical pumps. Honestly, I felt that my bestie Alissa got tired watching me taking a photo with any flower and blossoming bush I could find. To my excuse, I was just trying to catch a bloom that perfectly matches the coloring of my shoes—was it too much to ask? ;)

Jokes aside, this beautiful alley of magnolias that we saw at the U.S. National Arboretum was so inspiring that I brought home a do-it-yourself project, a bonsai magnolia that I’m planning on growing in our house. While I’m definitely not the best with flowers in general, something about bonsai art makes me super excited. I wonder if you ever tried your bonsai growing skills?
