Concrete Catwalk // Garden Variety

July 2, 2012

Today, we are finally headed back to NYC after a great trip spending time with friends in Kansas City and visiting G’s family at the lake, and I cannot tell you how nice it was relax, eat, shop, sun & swim with each other and some of our nearest and dearest.  This post seems somewhat appropriate both for the timing of the holiday week and also because it shows me doing something that makes me miss my balcony-garden back at our flat in KC.  I have really been missing having our own outdoor space recently, and in a way, summer hasn’t seemed the same without the chance to grow flowers, veggies & herbs like I had gotten used to doing every year.

When I saw that the tag on this darling Jigsaw-London green-label dress was plantable (!) – I just knew it was the perfectly opportunity to get my hands dirty and at least try and make do with a pretty container and a sunny windowsill inside.

See below for the rest of the look, and to find out about a very spicy sale happening this holiday week, including some mega-markdowns!

Jigsaw-London happens to be having a great big sale right now featuring markdowns on TONS of goodies, and there are just so many adorable things that I’m dying snatch up: a lemon-yellow summer scarf, this metallic clutch, slouchy low-heeled boots, a cashmere sweater (with buttons in the back!) and this pretty bright blue silk tank.  Come to think of it, add my new favorite boyfriend jeans to the mix, and I’ve got myself a pretty cute outfit! :)

Back to gardening though:  What color is your thumb?  Do you like the process of planting and caring for little green things and then watching them grow before your very eyes?

    Tried to click on the link for the dress in the text of your blog and got a 404 not found from the Jigsaw website.
