Took a lovely afternoon walk with Logan yesterday around 3:00. It was so lovely and warm. I was actually able to wear a tank and feel sun on my shoulders for the first time this season! All the trees and bushes are in full bloom right now. There were so many gorgeous pinks, whites, yellows and spring greens.
I wore my new “jeggings” (see trend test drive post), a sailor striped appliquè tank and my new Lux Coronette owl talon necklace. My hair was still a little wet from the shower and I let it air dry in the sun.
I’m so glad the weather is finally turning. I hear we’re supposed to have a couple days of thunder storms soon, but even that is better than snow (rain I can handle, I grew up in Oregon for goodness sake). We need to find some cute vintage deck furniture for our tiny front porch. Off to check craigs list!
For special occasions I would probably put up some bunting in shades of green and put a festive vintage tablecloth on the table. I have the most perfect little vintage 1970′s goblets in green glass that would look so lovely on the table as well.
We have a tiny little front porch on our apartment and since the weather is getting nicer we wanted to find a little dining set so we could have dinners outside, sit and read or just hang out with a drink. I found this bistro set from Target online that I think would be perfect! Compact, easy to fold and store or move, on SALE and has some pop (and a cute perforated design in the enameled metal top!).
So, how would you accessorize it? What plants, lanterns, etc? I’ll show you my picks later.
If you know me at all you know my favorite shoe brand is Seychelles. They fit my feet, are comfortable, cute as can be and they are typically around $100 full price so when they go on sale they are totally affordable. I spent my morning oogling their sunny summer yellows and having total shoe-lust. Here are my picks.
Above is the Rita in Vacchetta currently at $99. Zappos
Trip the Light Fantastic is gorgeous in yellow (shown) or Taupe. Zappos
Lastly, Veronica in Light Grey is so mellow and warm with her gold accents (not to mention on sale at $76.58!). Zappos
