Ten on the 10th - Flower Edition

Welcome to Ten on the 10th.
Today I'm sharing flowers for under $10.

Flowers that never wilt.

Flowers that the rabbits don't eat.

Flowers that look cool and refreshing on a hot day.

This sleeveless blouse was $9.99 at H&M.

I packed it for a recent trip to Northern California.  
It was virtually wrinkle free and didn't take up much space in my suitcase.
The fabric is a bit sheer, so a layer under it is a must.

Here I am enjoying the beautiful beach at Carmel-by-the-Sea while wearing it.
And these are a few of the other beautiful things I saw.

Amazing Redwood trees,

Enchanting cottage gardens,

and the San Francisco Botanical gardens.
My batteries are completely recharged from my four days in California.  While there, I rented a car to visit the neighborhood of my childhood. Our family moved from that area forty years ago.  Some things had changed greatly over that time, and other things seemed just like they had been the last time I saw them.  I was tickled to see some children's bikes (complete with handlebar tassels ) parked in front of my childhood home. So glad that some other lucky kids are growing up there.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Be sure to check out all the other Ten on the 10th June inspirations.

  10. Eilis,
    Great blouse. My sister lived in San Diego, CA for about 10 years and loved it. She goes back to visit friends at least once a year. Your trip looks like so much fun... beach, redwoods, and childhood neighborhoods.


  11. That's the cutest top and it looks wonderful on you. I'm so glad you got a little getaway -- those can be so restorative, even when you didn't know you needed restoration!
