One of my favorite lines this season is Carolina Herrera. Her pieces are some of the most gorgeous I've ever laid eyes on and I absolutely love the incorporation of vintage botanical illustrations throughout her line. Each dress is like a walk through the garden..what a perfect way to welcome spring! Here are some of my favorite pieces from her line + some of my favorite antique botanical illustrations...
