The Wild Bloom - Lake Elsinore, CA
Hellooooo rare wild bloom! These beautiful flowers have been taking over all of Southern California as of late. If you are reading this post now and have not seen the bloom, go now! These pretty babies are predicted to go away very very soon. This is the second year in a row I have been blessed to witness them. Last year, we went out to Death Valley National Park (click here for pictures), and this year to Lake Elsinore.
The flowers can be found on the hiking trail and right along the freeway. We opted out of the hike and just visited the blooms on the side of the road, and it was still a sight! It was quite busy with people from allover trying to get their time with the flowers, but we were still able to find some sweet spots for pictures. I am thankful for friends down for a mini adventure, as well as, allowing me to get my creative juices flowing with them as my photo subject. It was hard to choose, but below are my top picks.
For my wild bloom outfit, I rocked this sample sale purchase from HauteLook, and my go-to easy sandals. Then tied it all in (literally) with this Shop Bexo's Mettle Wrap Around Choker, which you all already know, I absolutely love! It was the perfect outfit for chasing the wildflowers - it was soft enough to not over power the bloom, with still enough quirk from the asymmetrical hem to still stand out. Not to mention, the asymmetry allowed for movement (with and without the wind), which was captured perfectly in these photos.
Let me know if you got to experience the wild bloom this year, and where! You can never have enough flower power pictures. And here's to hopefully getting another bloom next year!
