Palm Trees, Succulents and Cacti...Oh My!

I happened upon this wall of succulents and cacti while going out to lunch with my husband. I can't believe the extent to which these types of plants have become a trend! I have to admit that I have latched on to this trend recently in two ways. The first is regarding certain articles of clothing featuring cacti or succulents and the second was re-landscaping our yard to make it drought tolerant. Due to the process of the latter, I've become quite familiar with various types of desert plants. I think I've actually become a "plant lady" if you can believe it! I sort of enjoy going out and watering them in the evening and checking on their progress or defending them from evil caterpillars that prey on some of the plants!

Obviously, the palm trees from today's post title comes from the ones featured on my linen palm tree skirt. I feel bad that a lot of the things I've been posting on my blog lately, like this skirt, are available in limited sizes or not at all at this point in the year. Usually I wait until things are pretty deeply discounted before I purchase them and then by time I get around to doing a post on them, they're gone! Have no fear, however, as it seems that certain items are popping back up on the J. Crew website from time to time. Also, if you're interested in this skirt, I've linked to some other palm tree skirts that might be of interest.

  1. That's such a fun palm print skirt! :)

    I'm envious of your plant girl skills too, haha! Despite cacti and succulents being 'easy' to take care of, I regularly kill them. I need to get better caring for plants, I always forget about the poor things!

    Hope you are having an awesome weekend!
