One of my very favorite quotes: "Then followed that beautiful season... Summer... Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood."
—beautifully written by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
Isn't that a pretty quote? I have had it stowed away for a month, waiting for this very day to share it, in all appropriateness. Summer is such a beautiful time of year, and I'm so happy it's finally here! Celebrate it in large and small ways: by adding some colorful ceramics to your living space / by enjoying these gluten–free, coconut donuts / by heading to the beach with this chic bag / by spritzing your pillows with this light and soft scent / by wearing a neat top of pure tailored cotton, folded at the placket into intricate escaliers / with a stunning fuchsia, tasseled handbag in hand / with some floral arrangement inspiration / with these flats—from a ballet company that started making street–friendly flats at Brigitte Bardot's request / by using these and these for an outdoor party / some outdoor living decor ideas / an elegant bathing suit + romper / and lastly, with the most perfect Summer hat... happy Summer!
