palo verde blossoms
In the springtime, the palo verde tree blossoms in the desert around Tucson create an explosion of bright yellow, suffusing the landscape with an exciting intensity. It is a very special time as the desert is deeply enhanced by all this color... and that of the cactus flowers as well. We were imagining black and white attire amongst the backdrop of bumblebee yellow and we were thinking this at a time when our friend and photographer Krysta Jabczenski was in town. She was also wanting to photograph the palo verdes and the desert in springtime, so we set out together to spend a moment capturing these beauties. Our friend Heather Walker came along to wear the clothes from the shop for us :) We are excited to share more of these photos with you in the next few days <3
In this photo, Heather is standing next to a beautiful saguaro cactus, wearing a white apron from Fog Linen, a gathered linen dress from Pip Squeak Chapeau, black socks from Bonne Maison and black patent jazz shoes from Repetto. She holds above her head a large antique basket. All these pieces are available at the shop.
