The Secret Garden

Maxi Dress: Target – find HERE

Shoes: Report

Bracelets: Orange and Blue Man Repeller x Bauble Bar – find HERE and the rest gifted

My Nana (Grandma) is selling her house. It’s sort of a bittersweet feeling, as I grew up at this house, spending far more of my childhood there than my own home. I’ve been trying to spend as much time as possible there before she moves out in mid September and re-visiting childhood memories has made me ridiculously nostalgic. Growing up, the house was always surrounded with a beautiful, almost untamed garden. As a child, going through the gate to the spacious backyard was always a little like discovering the secret garden again and again. To this day, I still get that wonderful feeling left over from my childhood and it never fails to take my breathe away. This is something I will miss.

As for my maxi, I found this little gem at Target (where else?!). I am obsessed with the print and the beading at the top. I love that this dress can be worn with little to no jewelry and decided to pair it with a few bracelets for the perfect touch.

    Wow i love that dress. I already saw a picture of you in your pretty dress on instagram and i instantly loved it πŸ™‚ do you know if target delivers to germany? when i was living in the states i loved going there and i spent so much money there haha i really miss it, it would be soooo cool if i could order some stuff at target

    but anyway, i feel sorry for you that you are loosing a part of your childhood. i know what your talking about. my grandmother died a year ago and 6 month after my dad and his brothers sold her house because nobody was living there anymore and noone of our family wanted to keep the house. it was an old house and not very pretty but it was still part of us all and of my childhood. i remember the days that i spent at my grandparents, there was a big playground in the backyard and my grandfather also had some sheeps … it was so nice all the time and i loved being there and now that my grandparents are dead and the house is sold sometimes i still feel a little awkward and everytime when i pass that house it makes my heart jump a little.

    but i am pretty sure that you will love her new place. new doesnt mean that it has to be bad, it can be good too πŸ™‚ so i wish you luck with all that πŸ™‚

    I know that feeling. I grew up with my grandma too, only that the house still stands and we're not selling it. It's hard to let go sometimes but we have to move on from it.

    Lovely maxi, btw.

    Wonderful blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Many thanks.
