for love of lilacs

A few weeks ago, Gil & I adventured up to Prince Edward County to visit June Motel since it's been on my list of places to visit since it opened. On our drive back home we were looking for this body of dreamy water to shoot in, but stumbled across this lilac patch instead. The smell of these blooms remind me so much of home. Growing up we had two giant lilac trees in our yard, the smell takes me right back to my childhood.

I purchased this dress a few years ago from Spell & The Gypsy Collective and it's definitely one of those piece I'll carry in my closet forever. This dress is special enough to get married in or frolic through a field of flowers. The open tie back detailing and pockets make it that much more special (& easier to carry your flowers in hehe).

Stay tuned for my June Motel post, which will be filled with vintage vibes & neon lights!
