Today’s post is a special one that I’ve never done before, and I’m excited to share it with you! Lisa of Shine your Light, Kris of Driven by Decor, Pam of Simple Details and Jennifer of Dimples and Tangles do a Five Favorite posts every month and they always ask a guest blogger to contribute. This month is all about Summer Essentials, and I was thrilled that they asked me to join them! Summer is definitely a favorite season of mine, and I love that I get a chance to share my favorite summer essentials with you.
This spring, stripes are everywhere. From the classic French black and white tees, to bright striped dresses and tops, to cute, flowy pants. Just like gingham, they are one of my absolute favorite spring trends. They look crisp and fresh, even when the weather warms up. They’re timeless, practical, classic, and easily wearable. And how many things can we say that about?
As far as fashion trends go, we all know history seems to repeat itself. And gingham is a trend that seems to recur frequently in spring. I’m not sure if that’s always been true, but for the last few years it definitely has. And I can see why! Is there anything fresher, or happier, than gingham? It’s inherently cheerful and crisp (just like spring!) and it has timeless appeal.
Hi and Happy Best-Day-of-the-Week! Today is even better than usual for me as today my daughter is coming home for spring break! Nothing makes my heart happier than when everyone is back home and under the same roof 🙂
We’re back with another French Country Fridays, your source for all kinds of French-ish inspiration! I would say this week has a little bit of everything; antiques, kitchen design, a few tablescapes, and some decor!
Hi all, and Happy First Day of Spring! I’m so excited to be sharing my first spring home tour of the season, and I’m joined by eleven of my favorite bloggers who are also sharing their very best spring decorating ideas! If you’re landing here from my friend Lory’s, thanks so much for stopping by. She always has the most beautiful flowers, and I have a feeling this tour will be no exception!
I’ve been playing around with the decor on my mantel quite a bit lately. It’s so easy at Christmas; between the garland and the stockings, it’s pretty much a no-brainer. But at other times of the year, I like to change it around and sometimes it takes me awhile to get it just right. That’s how I ended up with three versions of a spring mantel 🙂
