A Crown of Daisies

daisies 1Daisies make me smile! πŸ™‚ For me, they represent the simple pleasures in life!

Roses are elegant, orchids are luxurious and there are a myriad of beautiful flowers to behold, the humble daisy is my choice: simply growing in a meadow, they do not boast to be the most beautiful flower in the world, they have a modest quality that makes them pretty too.

My top has lace across the front at the neckline and sleeves. And lace on the hem.

As a little girl, I loved making delicate daisy wreaths for my hair. I chose a crown of daisies for my wedding day. I carried a bouquet of daisies as I walked up the aisle. This skirt is lace with daisies that I bought last time in NYC that you can see closer here.

    I almost lost this post! It would be unforgivable to miss a post from Carmen and the daisies! It’s the real wonderful post! Daisies and Carmen is a beautiful couple. Little I can say about your capris that I have not said already, so long ago that I named you queen … I love the delicate blouse, with that wonderful lace band. It’s elegant and romantic … just like you! Your image with the daisies on your head is the image of beauty, romanticism, delicacy, tenderness, softness. The image of the most beautiful woman on Earth.

      Thanks a bunch Josep-Maria! I would miss your opinion because you are a fashion expert as well as my dear friend! You have given me the title Queen of Capri which I love! My dear mother was influenced by Audrey Hepburn and Audrey is a lady you and I also admire. She wore casual capris and ballet flats, with elegance and style. Capri pants are more chic than shorts and long pants can be too hot in the summer.

    What a pretty post, Carmen! You look so nice and delicate…

    Perhaps my favourite flower is the rose but I like many others including the beautiful daisy.

    I saw you changed it before I read your post. It looks so lovely. Flower power…. Those daisies are beautiful and as children we picked them and gave my mum a big bunch when we came home form the meadows. Oh and I love that skirt specially!
