You're invited to a Summer Soiree

Outdoor parties don't have to be limited to paper plates & plasticware. Take your favorite pieces outside, throw a simple white tablecloth over your patio table & live it up! Here are 10 recent things  have stumbled upon I would love to use at my sweet soiree.

Made for Sunshine

Life is a bowl of cherries...& lemons & bananas.

According to the fashion world, this summer it is all about getting fruity. Designers have rolled out punchy palettes with energizing shades of citrus & fruits (even some literal lemon & banana prints). It seems to be a little bit sultry,a little bit sophisticated, and definitely vintage inspired- it even vaguely feels a little Carmen Miranda! Here are some fruity flavored selections to be inspired from…

dresses via Stella McCartney

So put on your best yummy outfit, bring your inner Copacabana out, & have a delicious summer!

peace & love,
