Fashion Friday – White Dress with Denim Vest

Happy Fashion Friday friends!

I hit the jackpot the other day at the Biltmore Estate.  When my Dad was in town the hubs and I took him to the Biltmore Estate for dinner and I finally caught the Biltmore Estate sunflowers in full bloom.

I adore sunflowers so much and I always seem to get to the Estate just before or just after they bloom, never catching them just right.

I felt like I had won the Biltmore Estate sunflower lottery!

My sunflower infatuation runs deep.  I even decorated my house with sunflowers and I have sunflower dishes.

AND it just so happened that the sunflowers were the perfect accessory to my Fashion Friday outfit.

I paired my new denim vest with my favorite white eyelet dress.

I added a blitzed out hippie headband to complete the look.

Talk about a match made in fashion heaven!

It had just finished raining, so the mountains were smoking and the skies were gorgeous.  I know how lucky I am to have views like this out my back door, so I try to never take them for granted.
