One of my favorite quotes is from the artist Monet, "I must have flowers, always, and always." Back in mid June I heard about this awesome idea of blooms on wheels in Kansas City called KC Bloom Co.
Many of you know how much I love flowers. Growing up I was always surrounded by flowers. My Mom always had flowers growing in our garden. I get nostalgic thinking about a delphinium I used to check on a daily basis, it was like my pet. KC Bloom Co is such a cool way to make buying flowers fun, accessible, and convenient while bringing them to you in an adorable VW Vanagon called Westy. I stopped out at one of their events to make my own mini bouquet!
I made my own little bouquet out of roses, carnations, salal leaves, and alstroemeria. I'm gonna be honest it has been awhile since I have done floral arrangements. Last summer I had a lot more time to do them and this year when all of our tigerlillies were in bloom I just had to admire them from afar and skip any arrangements. However I think going out to Westy to make an arrangement for myself would be a good form of self-care and a way to support local business.
I loved the colors of this bouquet! So warm and pretty.
You might remember this Anthropologie jumpsuit from this post. I have been wearing the hell out of it! I actually got this jumpsuit from eBay for $24! I normally wear this jumpsuit with birkenstocks which have been a  huge pain to break in btw.  There is quite a few jumpsuits at Anthro right now that are a little bit simpler than this one and that I'd suggest if you're slowly grooving into jumpsuits like me.
KC Bloom Co has their own event schedule on their website/Instagram.
Hope everyone's September is off to a good start. I am busy as a bee with work and school. I'm never too busy for a pumpkin chai though! My weakness. I am looking forward to fall and a transition from this heat.

  16. What a beautiful and innovative idea! I would love to customize my own bouquet; I love flowers, too, though unlike you, that wasn't always the case. My mom has always been a lover of plants and flowers and I used to actually get annoyed, haha. She used to want to take the more scenic route whenever there was an option to admire the flowers. Fast forward a decade later and I'm the same way! I love them and I'm teaching Aviah at an early age to appreciate their beauty. Thanks for sharing this, I hope this concept will migrate to Connecticut!



  17. You and I both! I can't wait for this heat to be over! What a cute idea! I've never heard of flowers on wheels! Lol. I really love how your pictures came out! You look so cute in your outfit too! Have a lovely week!

  19. Oh Sonia, these photos are so beautiful! I truly wish I could look as fab as you do in blog photos! Teach me everything!!!

    KC Bloom Co is such a fantastic idea! We have random flower stalls but they are nowhere as adorable as adorable as this! I also love that you can make your own boutique! What a lovely gift for someone too!
