For someone who loves flowers as much as I do, it feels like a bold statement to say California Poppies are my favourite, but they easily are. I love how they seem to be so many things all at once, and how many of those qualities are contradictory. They are delicate yet wild, cheery and bright while also having calming properties that help reduce anxiety. Actually, whenever I am feeling anxious, my husband tells me, "you're just a poppy in the wind." You might feel like you're loosing control or all over the place but you are rooted and will be just fine. Fittingly enough, when we arrived to the poppy reserve, the winds picked up, the poppies danced and we wandered around the orange fields completely smitten by the sweetest flower.
I've been following along and wearing the beautiful work of Hackwith Design for a few years now. I love the simplicity of their pieces, the quality of their fabrics and that they are made to order by a team of amazing women in Minnesota. So, I was beyond excited when they asked me to take some photos of a piece from their new basics line.
This top is lightweight, loose, and just so comfortable. My new spring/summer staple.
I recommend taking a look at the rest of the collection here.
