shades of [fresh melon]

Refreshing, no? It's the perfect summer palette -- great for fabric, great for walls, and certainly great for a healthy plate of goodness on a hot summer day. And isn't the ceiling centerpiece pure genius for a happy outdoor wedding? Love, love, love!

On my way to Decatur Island for the weekend with the whole. entire. family. It doesn't happen very often, so I plan to take advantage of 48 hours of perfect family fun. Happy weekend, all!

scenes from the summer

The above images should explain why my summer blogging has been a little slow... I've been busy enjoying good food, good weather and good times with the ones I love most. I hope you're doing the same!

wish list [summer party dress]

...just the perfect summer dress to attend an outdoor celebration, no? I think I need more sheer lemon vintage pieces in my life, and I'm seriously wishing I could get my hands on this little number before my birthday celebrations next week!

shades of [the earth]

You can't beat nature when it comes to summer accessories, and I'm obsessing over The Vamoose's earthy, handmade jewelry this season. Citrine yellows & natural turquoise nuggets create the perfect statement piece for the beach. And the classic gold chains add the perfect touch of glam. I'll take one of each, please!

Speaking of the beach, have you made it there this summer? I'm ashamed to say that I have not, but that will soon be changing! I'm headed into the wilderness for a weekend of camping on the sand for a few days next week -- any and all tips are much appreciated. 

Happy Monday, all! It's already been a busy week & I'm anxiously looking forward to sitting down with a Skinny Girl Margarita & an episode of The Bachelorette. Cheers!
