I hope everyone has been having a great week! I have been a bit busy unpacking and repacking for my trip on Saturday. I look forward to sharing beach outfits with you guys over the next few weeks because I am off to Rosemary Beach! Yes, back to my happy place (or aka heaven on earth….)
I hope everyone had a fabulous Fourth of July weekend! I love fireworks – they have such a great way of bringing out the inner kid in everyone! I mean they are sparkles in the sky and who doesn’t love sparkles!!
I had a leisurely weekend so I thought I would share a casual chic brunch outfit with you today.
Zara crop top (check out my favorite options below), Marimekko for Banana Republic shorts, Zara clutch, Nadine Boutros necklace, pearl earrimgs via St. Barts, Hérmes watch, Cartier bracelets, Ippolita ring, ZeroUV sunnies
Hope everyone is having a great week! It is actually a little known fact that I have a secret love for flying. I took these pics outside the Air and Space Museum – I have always wanted to take flying lessons (even the current book I am reading is called The Aviator’s Wife!) The idea of being so free and soaring above the earth gives me great joy, and to me it seems like a miracle of sorts. If you will indulge me and let me share a poem (you may have read it before, but if not I am delighted to be the first to introduce it to you) – it sums up the idea of flight perfectly.
Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
of sun-split clouds, — and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of—wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there,
I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air….
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark nor even eagle flew—
And, while with silent lifting mind I’ve trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.
As you are reading this I am back in Houston – it is always such a great feeling to come home after a long trip. You forget the little things, like how your house smells, that are just irreplaceable! While I enjoyed the DC weather for the most part, we did have a hot day right before I left, so I whipped out my new Marimekko for Banana Republic bright floral tailored shorts.
Hope everyone has had a fabulous week! I am thoroughly enjoying my visit here to Washington, DC. Shopping in Georgetown, playing tourist at monuments and museums, dining out on fabulous food (and eating my Mom’s delicious home cooking), and squeezing in some fun time with family and friends. The trip has been packed with activities, so when I leave the house in the morning I want to be dressed for comfort and versatility. I wore this casual outfit running around some great museums (yup, in the heels!)
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! The weather here has been a great change of pace – it was down right chilly for me yesterday as I went cherry picking. It was so much fun and the cherries were so tart. I think “we” might (by we I mean my mother) try making a cherry pie today….WISH US LUCK!
I want to share some great deals I have found on the web lately to help cure the Monday blues.
