'cause you're the places that I wanted to go

'cause you're the places that I wanted to go

'cause you're the places that I wanted to go

So this is where I've been spending most of my time lately. B and I hardly watch TV lately because of it. Kind of nice. We had some friends over on Saturday for our first of what I suspect will be many informal gatherings. Of course, we managed to cram everyone onto our small but mighty porch, as no one seemed to want to be anywhere else! I love summer.

  5. Oh, I love your porch! There's nothing like having a little outside place, is there? And yours is so lovely! And you look so lovely there!

    Love how perfectly laid back and casual this look is. So classy and sophisticated and easy. Though on me it would be anything but. It would be: "Get back sticky fingers!"~to my son, who would nonetheless get sticky prints on my pants. ;-)

    But you look lovely and not sticky at all. ;-)

  33. I love porches! Whenever I'm back home and I drive by a house with a nice sized porch, I'm always so jealous. I have a balcony now, but it's not the same.

    I love your white jeans, I've been searching for a pair since spring with limited luck.

  64. Those shoes are INTENSE. Really adds some edge to this outfit...which is otherwise pretty summery and mild-mannered.
