Over the weekend, Sam and I visited Sherwood Gardens in Baltimore near our home to see the beautiful rows of tulips and other colorful flower bushes throughout the public park. Created in the 1920's by John W. Sherwood as a hobby, Sherwood Gardens was planted with tulips that he imported from the Netherlands. The gardens have now become known as the most famous tulip garden in North America. It is located in a beautiful neighborhood surrounded by ivy covered mansions and historic homes.
I could have spent all day at Sherwood Gardens just admiring the flowers and relaxing on the little bench in the middle playing chess. It was the perfect way to kick off a beautiful Mother's Day weekend.
After visiting on Saturday, I couldn't believe that we had waited this long being in such close proximity to the gardens. During our time that we were there, we witnessed a handful of engagement sessions, Mother's Day picnics, and couples strolling through the park. It was a perfectly peaceful place to shoot this look in partnership with Tobi.
If you saw my last style post with Tobi, the festival look with lace-up suede. you already know that this LA based women's boutique is ahead of the best trends in fashion. Tobi has quickly become my go-to place to shop this Spring for date night dresses, flirty rompers, and of course, printed maxi dresses.
I am a huge fan of maxi dresses, especially in the Springtime when the weather is warming up and we're spending more and more time outside. Throwing on a light, maxi dress has always been my no-fail way to create an effortlessly pretty look. This week, I paired this boho maxi dress from Tobi (on sale for only $28 right now!) with a braided black belt, and a white, wool fedora. A lot of the times I simply let the maxi dress fall in the loose and flowy way that it is designed. However, when I want a little extra definition in my waist, I cinch a thin, classic belt around to give the dress shape.
