Let us make the flowers our bed, and the
Sky our blanket, and rest our heads together
Upon pillows of soft hay. 
Let us relax after the day's toil, and listen
To the provoking murmur of the brook.

My perfect serene moment.... a white crochet hammock between two weeping willow trees next to a lake, a slight cool breeze that lightly swing a dainty windchime for some sound along with the leaves blowing softly through the air, and me wearing the “met you by chance striped tank” and “flowers of the field floral skirt” with the “inner beauty indie flower hairclip” in my hair, while napping with my two beautiful baby boys; my oldest tucked under my arm and my little one sound asleep on my chest....what a dream come true!

  • A picnik in the park on a sunny summer day with my darling Husband and my beautiful baby girl crawling and giggling as she tries to chase our little 10 lb. black shi-poo, Drake. I would wear the "symphony of silver bells chiffon top" with a cute pair of jean shorts, navy polka-dot cloche hat, and nude wedges.

  • My perfect serene moment? Laying on the dock by the lake with a blanket, a good book, a camera, and music.

    I would style the 'Whisper Something Sweet Lace Cardi' with a pair of denim shorts & oxford shoes for a walk on the pier.

  • It would be going to the local old-fashioned deli with my best friend for ice cream. I would wear the “sweet ocean air appliqué chiffon top,” because it is so beautifully flowy. I would pair it with my favorite khaki shorts and leather strappy sandals. I would style it with a cream-colored headband through my curled hair and a chunky wooden bangle on my arm. It would be a deliciously serene moment.

  • My perfect Sunlit Serenity finds me outside a café in Downtown Denver. I’m wearing the “breakfast in bed” floral dress and the “plethora of peaches” that blush just as rosy as the berries and fruit in the shops. I might need to slip out of the “lacey lullaby” lace jacket; it has been one of the million sunny, gorgeous days in Colorado. But I leave the “sunshine dance” sunglasses on, of course.

  • It would begin in my favorite city, Charleston,sc. I would be wearing my adorable striped swimsuit with the red bows and floppy tan hat!
    Laying on the beach with my two adorable baby boys and my tall, dark and handsome husband!!

  • My perfect moment of serenity is in a hammock stretched out in the sultry shade of the porch, lying next to old childhood friends with mint juleps in hand, reminiscing, or just swinging in soft silence. I would wear the streams of sweet dreams crochet tunic and the flowers for florence botanical shorts, my Chelsea Crew "Frieda" sandals kicked off on the stairs.

    Posted on June 6, 2011

  • My perfectly serene moment involves a hot bubble bath, a good book (the history of love by nicole krauss), and some riesling.
    I'd style the lovely "watching the sun rise floral applique top" tucked into a high waisted midi skirt with pleats, a flower crown, and cut out wedges.

  • My perfect serene day would be laying with my significant other in a hammock near the river. Listening to Billy Holiday and the sounds of nature. Feeling the sun shining on my face. A slight breeze that forces me to close my eyes and breath deep and get lost in the moment. No worries, no cares. Just nature and two lovers.

    I would wear the "from the clouds ruffled dress". Its light and beautiful and pure looking. I'd wear the paprika lexington indie necklace for a bit of vintage. I absolutely adore the boggle floral lace up flats. These would be perfectly vintage with my white ruffled dress.

    Posted on June 6, 2011

  • My serenity moment would be kissing my husband outside during a sunshower so I could feel the sun and the rain on my face. I'd be wearing the dizzy love applique top and the running on luck pleated shorts in white, with the pristine adelaide pendant necklace and the strolling through the park woven wedges.

  • In the quiet of the family reunion’s Canadian cottage, with my cousin playing the piano in the parlor, we relax on the porch. Grandma’s rocking gently to the music, her eyes half closed. Her weathered hands clasp a delicate teacup. My sister swings slowly; cousin Sean is drawing in his sketchbook. I’m sitting with my favorite book forgotten in my lap. I cannot bring myself to read a fairytale when I’m already in one.

    I would wear the "sweet ocean air applique chiffon top" with the "pristine adelaide pendant necklace," jeans and no shoes.

  • My perfectly serene moment would be in the summer time walking through a meadow in the summer time, or walking down a lovely dirt road with no sounds except those of mother nature <3. I would top it off by wearing the "flowers of the field floral skirt" and the "streams of sweet dreams tunic"...

  • Walking the shoreline of a beach at dusk, the sun stretching its red-orange-yellow rays across the sky, emilia's charm leather cutout heels (in beige) in one hand, the other entwined with the fingers of the significant other.

    Dream Outfit for the Day:
    Watching the Sun Rise Floral Top (for its delicate feminine-ness) paired with Running on Luck Pleated Shorts (perfect for playing some beach tag), accentuated with the Garden Treasure necklace (completes the outfit). :)

    Posted on June 6, 2011

  • My most perfect serene moment includes a picnic, Central Park, and my boyfriend. We try to have a picnic there at least 4-5 times every summer and I'm always the most at ease when we're laying down on a blanket looking up at the beauty that is Central Park. The follow me home lace cardigan would be perfect for a day that includes relaxing, food, and love. :)

    Posted on June 6, 2011

  • A day filled with family and friends of course; one in which day turns to night without anyone noticing. Lemonade, laughter and smiles that can't be removed even if you try.

    I'd be comfy in the serendipity floral maxi and sunshine straw hat. And, as a redhead, I'd be wearing my number one accessory: sunscreen :)

    Posted on June 6, 2011

  • A Touch of Vintage gray & ano liosia earrings with sandals and a cardigan... a visit to a favorite museum in San Francisco then lunch at my favorite Vietnamese restaurant with my husband our 2 sweet boys... Maybe more fog than sunshine in SF in the summer, and maybe not so serene with the children in tow, but lots of fun and my perfect day, none the less!

    Posted on June 6, 2011

  • my perfect serene moment is sitting by a a windy prairie in the facade of my old wooden house, watching the grass softly dancing with the wind while having a glass of tea.

  • My perfect serene moment would be in a forest clearing with the bright sun all around me. I would have a favourite book and my favourite person, my hubby, with me.

    Of course the wonderful "live in sunshine straw hat" would keep my serene moment from being ruined with a burnt nose :)

    Posted on June 6, 2011

  • A perfect serene moment is sitting curled up next to my boyfriend, with his arms around me, on the beach, watching the waves. I adore the tell me darling racerback crochet dress and would style it with some high heels, a long necklace and a light cardigan.

  • Sitting underneath an apple tree in an orchard just before sunset, with the late afternoon sunlight streaming through the trees ... a book in hand, a carton of chocolate milk in the other, and a plate of brownies by my side -- pure bliss!

    I'd be wearing the "streams of sweet dreams crochet tunic" with the "dear ocean town trousers".

    Posted on June 6, 2011

  • My serene moment - in the middle of the mountains at a turquoise lake with my sister doing yoga on the beach (i'm so not graceful, lol) while my 1 1/2 year old niece discovers the joy of sand digging for the first time - so cute!

    The roxanne swimsuit & crochet vest would be so lovely for that. :)

  • I am at a quiet beach, enjoying mild temperatures, lounging on a large comfy papasan, sipping on some refreshing sangria, reading a Jane Austen book, and listening to the gentle waves as they roll toward the pristine sand. Of course, I'll be styling in a simple, romantic and comfortable ensemble of "watching the sun rise floral applique top" and "dear ocean town trousers." Oh, and bare feet. :)

    Posted on June 7, 2011

  • Serenity is sometimes a slice of cool honeydew melon amidst the humidity of a summer midnight spent lounging with friends. Other times, the slow drone of an advertising plane over a small, solitary figure tucked into a beach chair some warm morning. The morning daydreaming floral top works as a beach coverup with a big pale sunhat and sandals while doubling as a casual summer top with faded jean cutoffs, brown oxfords and a nude headscarf.

    Posted on June 7, 2011

  • My perfect serene moment is lying on my back in the gras listening to the wind rushing through the trees and listening to the birds sing. It would be more perfect if I was wearing the oceanside stripes haltertop, that fitts the moment perfectly.

    Posted on June 7, 2011

  • Warm summer evening with a cool breeze on the beach where I spent my childhood summers. The sun just going down fills the sky with colors and there are little boats bobbing on the water and a big portion of hot fish and chips to share with everyone. Followed by a sneak up to the big field of horses.

    Wearing
    draped and dazzle applique top'
    'whisper something sweet lace cardi'
    'strolling through the park woven wedges'
    nice pair of shorts
    colorful summery jewelry

  • serenity=water. Whether it be being at our old apartment at the beach, being in Florence by the Arno with my beau, or stuffing my face at a quite couples only picnic by the lake, as long as there's water and by husband, I'm serene. And to make it all the more gorgeous: the "morning daydreaming floral top"or the "sweet ocean air applique chiffon top" please :)

    Posted on June 7, 2011

  • Since you're based in SoCal, you probably know of it - I would go for a sunlit brunch at Aroma in Studio City. I love how part of the cafe is in a bookstore, and then it spills out into a lovely patio that gets the perfect amount of sun each day. I'll be there, sipping an iced latte, wearing the Be My Sweet Pea ruffle top, with the navy blue shorts and a blue flower in my hair.

  • Growing up in the country, the most serene moment I have ever found was in walking down the country lane, with a soft breeze and the sun on my shoulders. All you could hear was the wind.

    Posted on June 7, 2011

  • With my Sweet ocean air chiffon Top and touch of vintage lace skirt i would sit on the edge of the ocean with my husband and his guitar. Together we would watch the sun descend while we played music. He would accompany my vocals and we would make beautiful music together along with the sounds of the wind, water, and birds.

  • on the family's sailboat off the coast of Virginia 3 weeks from now, sailing in my oceanside tank, white shorts and wide-brimmed straw hat. A delicious picnic dinner of salami sandwiches, fresh fruit salad and fizzy drinks sparkling in glass bottles. Then my daughter is below deck being rocked to sleep by the gentle waves and the bf and I are enjoying a bottle of wine and watching the sunset.

    Posted on June 7, 2011

    Strolling the brick streets of downtown Annapolis and browsing its quaint shops. Afternoon drinks would be along the water, watching the boats float in and out while enjoying the bay breeze.

    Posted on June 7, 2011

She is flying in for a friend's wedding in July, and I can see myself enjoying the wedding and taking in the beautiful scenery with her, all while wearing the Flowers of the Field skirt and Rolling in the Evening Breeze top.

    Posted on June 7, 2011

  • My serene moment would be wearing the Aspiring Aurora one-piece bathing suit and the day in the sunshine hat on Maui. I would stroll to a beachsite massage hut and get a relaxing massage to the sound of REAL ocean waves and birdsongs. THEN I'd grab a frozen drink and head to a lounge chair in the sand.

  • The sun would open her face and peek out from over the mountain tops. I would slip on my skirt and eyelet top(Sunlit Serenity 14), and go on a serene walk through the outdoors with the warm sun on my skin, and a smile in my heart, feeling as if the whole world is on my side. I would feel butterflies landing on my outstretched fingers, and see clouds moving through the soft sky like fluffy sheep on a field of blue.

  • My perfect serene moment is a memory. It was one of those magical nights in my country when the sun never sets. My friends and I climbed up on the top of the tower silo on our farm. We stayed up all night drinking champagne and trusting each other with secrets, while the world went quiet, but never dark.
    “Flowers for Florence” botanical shorts, paired with a simple blouse and a cute headband, perfect!

    Posted on June 7, 2011

    One of my favorite pieces from the collection is the flowers from florence botanical garden shorts. I'd style them with a sheer button-up top, tall, strappy wedges and a floral bangle.

    Posted on June 7, 2011

  • For my perfect sunlight serenity day, I would like to have my husband with me, back from Afghanistan. I dream about a sunny day, on the Abrahams hills in Quebec City, my hometown. I would lay on his laps, closing my eyes and letting him play in my hair. I imagine wearing the flowers for florence botanical shorts and the watching the sun rise floral applique top so I could go back home on my old bicycle. But I'm just dreaming...because he's not coming back soon...

  • My perfectly serene summer day would involve GETTING LOST and AWAY from the nasty heat I live in. Anything with the boy isn't too bad either. But a nice long drive, with lots of great coffee and some laughs sounds amazing as well.

    To wear!?

    I'd go with Sunlit Serenity piece number 7, all the way. Eventually, I'll have to kick the heels off though ;]

  • My perfect serene moment would be a walk by the beach, hand in hand with my fiance. The sun showering us with its warmth and the waves slowly covers our bare-feet while we walk. All I can hear is his voice and the sound of the breeze and the waves.

    I would be wearing the beautiful and relaxing "tell me darling racerback crochet dress" and "isolde's legacy indie bow headband by Petit Plume", with a beautiful lace shawl to cover my bare shoulders.

  • The moment would be laying on a blanket on a warm sandy beach after swimming in the sea for a reeeeally long time, wearing the 'aspiring aurora' bathing suit.

  • Sitting in the grass, whatching the Tuscan sunset, smelling the lavender, the pasta that is being cooked and the grass you're sitting on.
    That moment after a hot summerday when you realise it's cooling down at last and the sky is turning pink and purple.
    That moment when you know tomorrow will be an as perfect day as today has been and imagining a life being like this.
    That moment when you don't have anything to worry about, nothing on your mind but the fact that you're still wearing that "audrey navy polka dot two piece swimsuit" and your "I'll stand by you crochet back tunic" and deciding that you'll wear the "slow on sunday morning dress" for dinner although it is evening and you have no idea which day of the week it is.
    In short that moment that is so perfect that you don't realise how perfect it is until later because everything is so perfect that you don't realise it at all.

    (sorry for possible mistakes, English is not my mother tongue)

    Posted on June 8, 2011

  • My serene moment is sitting on the beach with my husband & baby girl watching what I call a sequined sunset-the moment the sun reaches the horizon an explosion of brightness occurs, like sequins bursting. It is my time to reflect how blessed I am-when nature and my world collide.

  • My perfect serene moment would be me driving to a remote place away from the city with only me, a cup of java, my iPod filled with indie music, and my camera where I would stop as many stops as I desire on the way to find that perfect snapshot. It's hard to just stop as I please when I drive with my husband. I don't think he has the patience for that.

    For this I would wear the halter top and the pleated short shown on Serenity 10. Under it, I would put on the roxanne striped two piece swim suit so that when I'm done snapping, I could call up my bff to meet me at a beach nearby for some sun bathing and catch up on life.

  • my perfect serene moment: taking a nice long stroll, just as the sun is coming up, before everyone is up and about. my usual route has me cutting across the dewy field. i love how the crinkle of the grass cuts through the morning silence, and how the world seems to wake up with every step i take. the blowing wind is peppered with birdcalls; you get the odd dog barking. it is slightly chilly and my feet get a little damp, but it's lovely all the same. i would wear the draped and dazzled applique top with the touch of vintage skirt in gray: simple, comfy and flowy.

  • My perfect serene moment would be spent with my love at the beach on a warm, breezy, sunny summer day. I would be wearing the rosebuds in bloom floral tank, a pair of denim shorts, and my favorite pair of boggle floral lace up flats. <3

  • My perfect serene moment would be walking down the boardwalk in Newport with my husband and dog chatting about summer days and munching on a chocolate-covered frozen banana. Summer at its best. I would be wearing the "serendipity moment floral maxi" with some nude strapy sandals and a big floppy straw hat. =)

  • My serene moment is getting gelato with my boyfriend during the summer and sitting down at the park to eat, take in the summer breeze and spend quality time together. I'd wear the Across the Deep Blue Sea dress, Decadent Domori hat and Restricted Sprinkle sandals.

  • For a perfect summer day, I'd enjoy a tall glass of unsweetened sun tea by the breezy bay. Lounging in the Darling Daydreamer Floral sheer tank on a sandstone colored chaise with sleep pulling at my eyes, I kick my Soaking in the Sun espadrille wedges off my feet to slumber in the tangy ocean breeze shielded under the shade of palm trees.

  • For a perfectly serene summer day, I would take a long walk in the early morning, wearing the swept me off my feet chambray dress, the live in sunshine straw hat, floral aria toggle bracelet, and sandals, while I enjoyed a fresh fruit smoothie. I would call up my best friends, and go flea-marketing with them, stopping whenever for adorable pictures, and just enjoy the wonderful day.

  • I just discovered Ruche today, and I am in LOVE! It is as if I have found a designer who creates looks that are completely dictated by my style--WOW! Thank you for offering this company!
    Okay, one of my favorite serene moments was getting to travel with my husband before we had kids (now 2 and 5 year old boys). One particular stop was in Cinque Terre, Italy. One late afternoon, we went to a tiny, outdoor cafe overlooking the ocean. We played cards while snacking on kalamata olives and sipping drinks. Time seemed to dissolve with the setting of the sun and the softening ocean breezes. It was quiet, still, and beautiful all around, and we just enjoyed that moment in time with one another, letting the rust colored sky, distant clinking dinner plates being set, and the salty, rustling waves soothe us. That memory has made that location one of our favorite places we traveled, and we were blessed to go to many wonderful places together.
    I would wear the BEAUTIFUL "dizzy love applique top" with any pair of your fun white or khaki shorts. I would have a perfect seaside shoe, such as an espadrille or woven wedge sandal. I automatically thought of the dizzy love top, not only because it is one of my favorites, but because the name so well describes the moment--dizzy with love for my hubby and the fullness of my senses in that beautiful, romantic moment in time.

  • Walking along the beach with my live in sunshine straw hat, and that all dashing aspiring aurora one piece bathing suite. Dig my toes in the sand, staring off into the summer sunset; building a small fire pit with my friends. Roasting marshmellows and drinking organic tea, as the sun eliminates our moments. I'd wear the wistful dreamy vest to keep the stormy breeze away, and await the moon lit skies to guide us into this magical night.

  • My perfectly serene moment would take place on the beach where white sand meets clear turquoise waters and white rocky cliffs of the Mediterranean in Cassis, France. Not another person in sight, and just an hour or so before sunset, my husband would be serenading me with gentle guitar melodies on his Martin acoustic. We'd relax on the white sandy beach in the fading sunshine, curled up on a blanket with some baguettes, brie, Nutella, and a few bottles of wine. I'd lounge barefoot sweetly in the Serendipity Moment floral maxi, my long hair loosely braided across my shoulder under the Shores of Panama floppy hat. The Follow Me Home lace cardigan and Flower Strung Thong Sandals would be tossed to the side, waiting for the moment the sun finally eclipses the sea, and the cool salt breeze begins to chill us.

  • Serenity. In my hammock after hours of driving my body melts into my hammock and almost forget my feet are even there! The sun bleached rope of the hammock blend in perfectly with my strolling through the park woven wedges. The bay breeze is the perfect combination of the salty nautical air and the fresh water mixing. The same with my skirt and belt, wearing the cheyenne autumn wide woven belt and the in line with you striped skirt, reminding me of the ropes on the sail boat and the whimsical nautical stripes. As the sun starts to set I snuggle into my weightless hammock as and the evening breeze sets in and my rolling in the evening breeze eyelet top turns from white to gold in setting sun, and I want to hold on to the peaceful moment forever, in my serenity.

  • Perfect serene moment, laying on a blanket by the river in the late afternoon sun in my swept me off my feet chambray dress, fingers playing with my new citrus delight beaded necklace, as soft music plays in the background and I watch my husband and puppy play nearby.

  • My perfectly serene moment happens everytime I smell lilacs blooming in my yard. They remind me of my mom:)

  • A perfectly serene moment starts by waking up with the sound of ocean tides, taking a morning walk in the beach, feeling the breeze in my face. Spending the day on a beach chair reading a long book drinking lemonade =) Oh! while wearing a beautiful "live in sunshine straw hat"

  • A perfectly serene moment would be going to a drive in movie with my boyfriend and sitting on top of my navy blue 65 mustang cuddling in a blanket watching a black and white love story.....

    I would wear, " in a bed of roses strapless dress" with the "courageous love ruched cardi" on top. I would pare this outfit with some red or black heals a flower in my hair and some curls to match!

  • In the green sunlight, under the honey-smelling chestnut tree, I'm twanging on my baroque lute's strings. My sweet love's head is on my knees. We've just had a picnic, and he gently fell asleep, listening to the music. In front of us, the river is flowing. End of the day. The moment is perfectly serene, I am wearing my mom's the word floral dress with an old porcelain brooch, a Ruche flower clip in my hair, and no shoes.

  • Gaaah, I'm wrong on the name of my dress. It's not the mom's word floral dress (that I oredered today, hence my error), it is the from the from the clouds dress :D
