As I’m sure some of you know by now, we have been in the middle of a pool and backyard renovation for the last couple of weeks (you can see some of the progress in my Instagram stories). I’ve had quite a lot of interest and various questions about what I’m doing, and how we decided on our choices, so I thought today it would be fun to share with you my design process for the renovation. I’m going to show you the outdoor spaces that were inspiring me, my mood board, and also share with you how I changed it all halfway through, lol!
It’s been so long since I’ve written about fashion, so I felt like a summer fashion post was in order today! And what’s more summery, than swimsuits?! I don’t know about you, but they are not my favorite thing to shop for or buy. However, a black swimsuit is my secret weapon! Trust me, you can’t go wrong with one.
Are you ready for summer entertaining? To me, this time of year always seems simpler and just a little more relaxed than any other season. There is just something about lingering after a dinner party on the patio on a summer evening, don’t you think?
Hi and happy Wednesday! Today I’m excited to be joining a fun summer home tour hosted by the fabulous Krista of The Happy Housie. If you’re coming here from my friend Jamie’s, welcome! She just released a gorgeous French decor book, which I wrote all about it in this post. And you can check it out here!
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.
Today I’m excited to share my French Country summer home tour with you! In fact, I’m just excited about summer in general. I know when August comes and it’s blazing hot, I may regret wishing for it, but I can’t help myself.
Ever since I was a kid, there has just been something special about summer to me. Swimming on a hot day. Backyard BBQs. Pool parties. Warm nights spent outside. Sandy toes and salty hair. The long, lazy days of summer remind me of a younger, simpler time, and I treasure them when they’re here.
