I've lived in Temecula almost all of my life, and yet I had no idea this beautiful garden even existed! Living in the suburbs, there are parks almost on every corner, but none as lovely as Rose Haven Heritage Garden.

I think I saw an acquaintance post about the garden on her Instagram, so when we had a warm sunny day last week, Nate and I decided to go see it for ourselves. We were not disappointed! It's a lush sprawling property with walking paths, picnic areas, and rows upon rows of colorful flowers, succulents, and of course fragrant roses. The scent in the garden was incredible, I wanted to bottle it up! Even though there were quite a few people walking around taking photos, the garden felt very peaceful. Next time we plan on packing a light lunch and taking advantage of their picnic tables or gazebos. 

This pink pleated midi dress has definitely been loved since I bought it last Spring. I can't tell you how often I reach for it, especially on days when I want to look a bit dressed up. I'm happy to see that midi lengths are still really popular because they're so feminine and so my style! I've worn this dress with flat sandals on the beach, with high heels for a nice celebratory dinner, and now with wedge espadrilles in a garden surrounded by roses.

Where will it be worn next?

  1. I haven't heard of that rose garden either but it looks and sounds beautiful! Glad you were able to have such a nice time there. And your dress is so pretty and feminine! Ann Taylor really makes great dresses!

    1. Yes, it's such a beautiful location for pictures! I bet it was super busy during prom season, and I even saw a maternity shoot while we visited. I'm always on the lookout for potential photo ops ;)

  2. Wow! This garden is so beautiful! I wish I could grow roses but they never work out so I admire the whenever I see them! That dress is so beautiful on you!

  3. What a perfect dress to have chosen to wear to the gardens! I love when you find such a beautiful spot is only around the corner from you!
