When I was a little girl, I was obsessed with Impressionism. I did a whole project in fourth grade on my favorite Impressionist painter at the time, Georges Seurat. My fascination with the 19th century art movement continued into adulthood. I still get chills when I visit Musée de l’Orangerie and sit in the oval room filled with Claude Monet’s “Water Lilies.”
Before the pandemic, my photographer, Mun, asked me to meet her in Bakersfield, California to shoot in the blooming almond orchards. It was worth the two hour drive from LA. The minute I stepped inside the orchards I felt like I was in an impressionist painting brought to life. I wore this floral dress to blend in with the blooms. Since it’s a splurge, I rounded up some more impressionist painting floral dresses below…

Watercolor floral dresses have such a romantic feeling. So I wanted a hairstyle to match. I tied my hair in a half ponytail and re-used velvet ribbon I had leftover from my holiday decor: DIY ornaments and DIY pumpkins. I’d like to think that my favorite Impressionist painters would be happy with my tribute.
