Lovely Things #10

Hey hey. Here we go with a new LOVELY THINGS roundup of nice things that have caught my eye lately. I’m coming up short with a common thread besides compatible hues and nesting. Mostly I think this is my last soft tones hurrah before sinking into the dark, moody autumn that will be filling me up until we get into late January and February when all thoughts will turn to the deep yearning for brightness and silky spring petals. Find more LOVELY THINGS.

Friday!

honey-kennedy-salvador-dali-vis-a-vis-de-gala-sofa-1935-1937

Happy Friday, friends! I’m moving from kicking and screaming about the end of summer into excitement about fall rather quickly. Fall will forever be my favorite season, but I just wish there were roses, stone fruit, and rosé on the patio enveloped in all that autumnal splendor. I thought this floral headpiece and fainting on a Salvador Dali sofa summed up the drama and transition pretty well. Ha. Have a great weekend! See you Monday! xx Jen
