{colour inspiration: a pale & pretty palette}


. . . yesterday, it was at the shops for a lacy, 60's inspired sheer white dress, and today, a sunny, sunny, mid-august day, and for just a little while longer, still summertime . . . and so, a few sun-drenched & summery things, while there's still time . . .

It's amazing how even popsicles when made in the right colors can be attractive!

Bonne été!

As your summer is fading, our spring is just gently teasing us on the other side of the world.
Which reminds me of that old quote...it's always summer somewhere in the world...how very true.
Beautiful images, as always.

These are some of the most lovely items for summer! I'm smitten with the straw baskets and Kate Spade glasses! Also, it has actually warmed up here too -- 80 degrees, I suppose to give us one last summer ooph! I'm savouring it as well... :)
