One of the best things about Spring is the blooms. Us Colorado locals dig out our shorts and start working on our gardens. Growing up my mom tended her garden all summer, getting excited about cultivating new life every Spring. Her birthday is in April and mother’s day is in May and the only thing she asks for every year is stuff for her garden. This weekend Bruce and I stopped by our local garden center to stroll though the greenhouses and pick out pretty flowers. We also dreamed about raised beds or hanging gardens for our porch (because we don’t have a yard of our own) to grow our own food this summer. We have to do a little mapping, planning, and researching, but we may step out into the gardening world this summer!

These midi boy shorts from American Eagle are my new favorites. They are ridiculously comfortable and I am loving the light wash/ distressed look these days! I just recently rediscovered AEO (I thought I outgrew their style) and I am obsessed with how their clothes fit me. I have to try not to stop by the mall every time I am up north 😉

Also I am swooning over these dreamy garden center pictures. We played around with some new photo ideas and editing styles. I think (I mean, I know!) I am really digging the light & airy look these days. I am really trying to figure out what my blogging photography style is and how I want to share these stories with you. Just three years ago I was only sharing photos from my phone and so sometimes I feel so lost when trying to be consistent with my photo style! It is all a work in progress but that is what I love about blogging – constantly being able to learn and grow!

  • These photos are so darling! We’ve been spending our days at nurseries and Home Depot’s garden center. Although we rent an apartment, our landlord is incredibly environmentally friendly and one of his initiative is raised garden beds in the front of our building. We plan to use a bed and also grow herbs in our window! So exciting!

      Thank you so much Laura! You are wonderful! That would be so fun – what a cool opportunity!

  • What a beautiful space! You look so happy and free here (like we all should be in such a beautiful greenhouse!). So thrilled the blooms are finally returning to Chicago — it always breaks my heart to see the trees so bare in winter!

    Xoxo,

      Thanks so much Michelle!

  • You are just so cute! I love that necklace and this beautiful garden center!

    • Oak & Oats

      Thanks so much Daisy! You are so sweet!

  • I love your necklace (and not even just because it’s called wanderer 🙂 )! Our spring adventures included a trip to the beach last weekend. The weather was perfect, the crowds were non-existent, and we immediately decided we need to make a beach trip happen this time of year every year.

    • Oak & Oats

      That really is perfect! Hahah!

  • Lovely photos! I enjoy sitting outside at a cafe or coffee shop. I also get motivated to run outside in the spring.

    • Oak & Oats

      Thank you so much Marla! I love sitting outside the moment I can!

  • These photos are so pretty! This looks like such a beautiful garden center!

    • Oak & Oats

      Thanks!

  • This outfit is so cute, and I love the location for your photo shoot, too! Loose, comfy clothes like this are perfect for warmer weather.

    • Oak & Oats

      Thanks so much! I love clothes like this these days!

  • Beautiful photos! Has me itching to get out into the garden. Maybe I’ll just take a short break….

  • Gorgeous colors! Bright and airy- I love these!

  • I too LOVE shopping for plants! I always want to buy more…Whenever I go to the store I tell my husband “no promises” when it comes to buying more plants…Haha!

    • Oak & Oats

      HAHAH I know right?!?!

  • These photos are so gorgeous! I love it when you just find that perfect pair of shorts that fit perfectly! I haven’t been able to find a good pair in a while. It’s still a little chilly for shorts in our neck of the woods, but I can’t wait!

    • Oak & Oats

      For reals! I love these shorts! I just rediscovered American Eagle and bought three pairs! hahah

  • I love all these photos and all the pretty flowers! I can’t wait to have my own garden one day, but for now a little window sill garden will have to do 🙂 Also, love the outfit!

    • Oak & Oats

      AH! I agree! I don’t have a yard either but I just made a porch garden! I took a million pictures and I cannot wait to share them on my blog!

  • I love flowers and these photos are great!

    • Oak & Oats

      Thank you so much Anne!

  • Beth! Love how these pictures turned out, they are so lovely! I need a place like that for pictures, haha! 🙂

    • Oak & Oats

      Google greenhouses or garden centers! That’s what I did! (I mean, we already like going to this one because it is just down the street from us but I wanted to see if there were others)

  • I need to find a garden center like this near my apartment. These photos are so inspiring!

    • Oak & Oats

      You should totally google it!
