'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.

am completely envious and impressed by both the quality of each of your posts but also with the effort you put into your blogging .. how do you maintain such a steady pace of great frequent posts?

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. ;-)

Ashley said...

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.

xoxo, Ashley

You make it seem so effortless to look so chic. Those shoes would look great with almost anything too, I bet.

myedit said...

When I see you looking lovely on your front porch, I can't help but feel jealous that the deal with our old house (with a killer front porch ) fell through.

When I look at that shirt I think of cotton candy, which makes me think of a fair, which reminds me of those rides that have all those swings attached, which reminds me of my childhood, which makes me super happy, which is well, wonderful!!

Absolutely gorgeous outfit and that porch looks so perfect.

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