Lovely Things #9

Lookie here! It’s another Lovely Things post in less than one month. I almost made my Cool Summer Drink Recipes post a Lovely Things roundup, but decided I’ll keep these posts more varied for things that I feature. I think the common threads in #9 are gold, mint, and dipping a toe into fall with the heat of summer still at your back. Find more LOVELY THINGS.

I love this whole look — especially the sunglasses and the jumpsuit.

This light quartz pink denim jumpsuit is super cute. (Free US ship: USAFREE)

Love these pressed flower DIY tips. These are so beautiful hanging on the wall!

I made this golden beet turmeric hummus and it was SO GOOD.

Oh, my. Her second book looks so very lovely!

I’m feeling this 1985 Madonna shot by Andy Schwartz during Desperately Seeking Susan.

I’m totally obsessed with this new fragrance. It smells like old French church.

Ummm… cardamom toothpaste? Don’t mind if I do!

I cannot tell you how much I’d like to try this fancy rose mouthwash!

I’m so charmed by these dusty mint floral pillowcases.

I’ll take these linen pillowcases in dirty pink and all the other hues, please.

I love these handmade metallic moon leather pouches.

This beautiful linen coat has been on my mind for fall – in navy, natural, and black.

This whole look with the perfect linen vest and silk jumpsuit is amazing.

Beautiful gold foil leather GG pumps! And these.

I’m planting these dreamy washed silk-hued fleurs from seed this year.

Who can resist stars and champagne? Not moi.

Cool Summer Drink Recipes

If you’ve been following me @honeykennedy on instagram this summer, you know that I’ve been doing a lot of cooking, baking, pickling, and syrup making this year and really making the most of our amazing farm share from Helsing Junction Farms and all the herbs, roses, berries, and tomatoes I’m growing in our garden. I recently made my own Ginger Vanilla Thyme Simple Syrup to add to soda water, cocktails, and other quick, happy-making recipes. I also made Lavender Rose Mint Simple Syrup that I’ve been enjoying over fruit and yogurt several times a week. I love simple drinks made with fresh and interesting flavor combos, so I put together a little roundup with some cocktails and mocktails that have sparked my interest lately. Have fun and feel free to ask me about making simple syrups!

Happy Friday, friends! I am coming to you from St. Paul, Minnesota. We’re back visiting family again, but this time it’s for fun stuff like birthdays, tacos, and tequila. We even get a few visits with our friends here this time around. So far, I am resisting my urge to go vintage shopping and estate sale sailing because I tend to have good luck here and know we’d suddenly need to rent a truck to drive everything back to Portland. We’ll see if I stay strong! It’s tempting though, right?? Have the most wonderful weekend! xo Jen

Hey hey! Happy Holiday Weekend to my U.S. homies — I hope it’s a long one that you get to enjoy! There has been a darkness over our country since we lost the election and then the Obamas, but I am reminded every single day that the good people here far outnumber those blind to our vision for an inclusive, harmonious future. It has been difficult to hold our heads up some days, but I am hopeful that the ship will be righted and we will be back on course. Lots of love to everyone out there and, if you live outside the states, please stand with us — we need you. xx Jen
