Idyll: Lace, dots, roses and the time-honored stone watching over me
Epiphany: It's just a ray of sun on my skin
Being the not so holy saint: A crowned girl is like no other girl!
A bunch of roses: Flowers made of silk will never fade away
Frills and Buttons: Dressed in a blouse like a tender flower petal
I don a crown of flowers
To mask the sorrow inside
Eyes which fall upon its beauty
Do not see the tears I cry
While the flowers bud to blossom
I wilt to almost nothing
In a garden colour filled with life
There is also a shadow found
In the sun the flower buds open
In the dark a heart is closed
The flowers shall be woven together
To hide something left unseen
The rose, the tulip and the bluebell rise
I am envious of their beautiful life
So I don a crown of flowers
To mask my sorrow inside
Lately, pastels and flowers are finding their way into my wardrobe more often. Matching my outfit to the blooming flowers in the gardens makes me forget that I used to think pale colours are not my cup of tea. They just feel like the right thing this season.
Wearing flowers in the hair as a crown, wreath or band is an instant transformation: A girl starts to feel like from another world, like an affectionate fairy or an illustrious saint. Headwear made of flowers can look very bohemian, chick, hippie-like or whimsical, depending on the style.
Flower wreaths always remind me of the Virgin Mary as well as the painter Frida Kahlo or Illona Staller (italian porn star and ex-wife to Jeff Koons). Just this three woman reveal, what divers characters love to crown themselves with flowers. I couldn't say which of them I cherish most. A wild mixture of them is my source of inspiration, all united by the beauty of a crowned head.
If you did never wear a flower crown, now it's the time to try! In case you don't dare to wear one for your everyday life, why not at least pick one to visit a cool indie festival during summertime?
