. . . bright, sunny afternoons that seem to last a little longer each day, and thoughts are drifting, drifting to enchanting spring & summery things -- whimsical notecards with sweetly scalloped edges and palest pink shorts with layers light as air, french rattan baskets and pretty lacy parasols, sexy eyelet tops and romantic bed linens and soon, there will be picnics and early evenings at the beach . . .

Your blog is just full of eye candy! So inspiring to see these unique hems, really digging those H&M shorts. Hopefully they will be debuted soon in the H&M store nearby.

LOVE this post -- especially the H&M shorts! They'd be so beautiful with a white shirt -- but also with matched with a pale pink shirt for a monochromatic look!

Oh I do love that sexy eyelet top, where is it from? We have been having some fantastic Spring weather here in S. Florida and I am always afraid that the end is just around the corner we need the rain but I am kind of selfish hope the nice weather sticks around for a bit longer :)
