Back to our regularly scheduled programming! I took a little vacation to the East Coast and now I am back and more inspired than ever and have a long list of ideas for the blog! Today’s subject is the white button down shirt, an item that I am ashamed to admit I really did not own
As we start getting towards the height of summer, peaches are at their peak. I love using them to make warm crumbles, grilled with pork, whirred into bbq sauce, …. But sometimes when they are so juicy they are begging to be eaten, I like to make this dish with the simple flavors of summer.
What to wear when it gets hot and humid: linen is my choice. Anything light and breezy, that doesn’t feel too snug or tight. I have been loving my finds at & Other Stories. It is similar to a Zara, but their clothes feels more edited and better quality with a good price point.
I wanted to do a breakdown of what has been in the rotation of my beauty bag. I have some old favorites, but also some new ones that I have really been loving. My focus is always on the complexion, if there is a beautiful canvas, then everything else falls into place.
One of my favorite things about summer time is embracing dining alfresco! Whether that is is eating in your backyard or packing up some treats and having a picnic. I have made a list of how I like to pack for a picnic!
Summer begins with apricots. They only have a short-lived season of that soft and sweet tartness, so unique to them. Laid across a buttery pasty dough and baked, the apricots meld and become irresistible.
One new staple, two old favorites. Maybe it’s a sign of age, but I have come to relish in wearing and re-wearing beloved items in my closet. While a younger me may have yearned for bright and shiny things, I love the mindful practice of quality over quantity.
