{fashion inspiration: august afternoons}

. . . after a wonderfully romantic lunch date by a waterfall this afternoon and a little time lounging poolside, officially considering taking the month of august off like the french and strolling about, lost in daydreams and looking impossibly cool despite the heat in elegantly tailored silk city shorts and oversized pearls and tortoise-shell cuffs, or perhaps, browsing the shops and flower markets in stylish ruched trenches and perfectly ruffled little white summer dresses . . .

Fabulous! Makes me want to take off my studio clothes and slip into a little something chic and soft and wander aimlessly about while heads turn to look at my fabulous summer outfit and wonder at my glamourosity (tee hee). Your lunch by a waterfall sounds like a treat! Hope it's marvelous! xo
