Our love affair with Italy continues with a street style focus on the sunny Isle of Capri where the people watching is magnifico! While traveling abroad I’m often drawn to capturing the local street style. As you can see by my images, I’m not the only one that finds this fashionable parade eye catching. On Capri it’s all about summery white dresses, chic black frocks, pale straw bags or vibrant leather backpacks, brilliant headscarves, straw hats, jewel encrusted handmade sandals and, as always, the stylish sunnies.Read More
With sparkling crystal chandeliers, vintage velvet couches, luxurious linens, time-worn books, a pastel collection of vintage plates, whimsical accents like a jaunty top hat, and a touch of animal print, the details of this apartment are charming. The skeleton wall, meticulously restored, is a nod to the early history of this charming space.Read More
I'm a sucker for an accent, especially a southern drawl. I'm sure my fondness for the sounds and pace of life in the south comes from my dad, born and bred in Pickens, South Carolina. I remember several visits to the south and being enamored with the gentle breezes, slower pace, and friendliness of the place.
When it comes to reading, I gravitate towards books that transport me to my faraway places, such as Italy or Paris, but I've recently added the South to my collection of favorite reading destinations, thanks to my most recent read.Read More
I've been asked to share my fantasy dinner party.
Who would I invite?
My fantasy dinner party will be held in Italy and definitely somewhere near the water. I'd have to choose between Positano and Lake Como--each classic Italian beauties--and on my itinerary for summer travelRead More
Happy October and welcome to the 6th installation of our Lifestyle Linkup #stylefocus!!
I'm finding lifestyle inspiration from the beauty of an autumn sunset from our deck, the french inspired courtyard at my mother's house, sunny gerber daisys and my sister, Heidi's, rustic pumpkins.
Thank you for joining Jennifer of A Well Styled Life and myself for the linkup this month. Check back and watch the collection grow over the weekend. Add your instagram links as well as blog links and use the #stylefocus.
Looking forward to catching up with your beautiful blogs over the weekend!
Let's get it started in here with sunset from our deck tonight.
It all begins with that first step, being the water baby I am, I'll plunge right in.
Today I'm inspired by the color yellow, so fresh and cheery, even on the rainiest of days. I had to have some yellow in designing my blog today. Putting together styles, colors, fonts, photographs and working to create the right vibe. I'm sure it will be a work in progress.
I'm loving Pinterest and the ever-present inspirations for everything under the sun.
I have a few favorite blog writers that I've been following (but without a blog home had no where to invite them to visit). I will share those soon and hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
For now it's Saturday night and I'll share the view from our terrace for some natural inspiration.
