I have to admit, purple is my least favorite color. As a result, I can be tentative about lavender, lilac, magenta, and all the other variations of purple. However, sometimes I see a lavender or lilac piece that really catches my eye and I go for it… it’s good to step out of your wardrobe comfort zone every once in a while! Lavender or lilac tend to be the shades of purple I’m drawn to because they are softer and, in my opinion, more feminine tones than some other variants of the color.
I love pastels! So, when I popped into Hampden one day this spring in Charleston I decided to scoop up this lavender dress and bring it with my on my trip to California (yes, I know that was in March – I have no idea how I’ve been sitting on these photos for SO long!). When writing this post, I decided to dive a little deeper into the color tone and dedicate some space on Rhyme & Reason to lavender pieces for summer. Keep reading for my top choices!
The gorgeous backdrop of these photos is the Flower Fields in Carlsbad, California. I hadn’t been since I was a child and the moment I stepped foot on the property, I was amazed that I hadn’t. We were there for ranunculus season, which was such a treat as ranunculus are one of my favorite flowers! You wouldn’t believe the fields and fields + rows and rows of bright colorful flowers. I was wide-eyed the entire time! I’m going to start sharing my favorite lavender pieces for summer with dresses, like mine…
