The Collars Of Daffodils

Hello! Happy Friday!! This week went by in a flash! Today I will be hanging out and slothing with my friend Teresa as she is really in the finally stretch of her pregnancy and we both need some chill hangout time. We’ve been counting down the days to this day of watching terrible movies and nibbling on a sea of snacks. I even bought a crudité platter — which always feels like high laziness. There will also be hot fudge sundaes and nail polish. The rest of the weekend will be consumed by our sweet 5 year old niece again, more gardening and a fun birthday party full of dramatic little girls… and hopefully more ice cream. Have a wonderful time doing whatever it is you’ll be doing this weekend! xo Jen

Summer Toast

I’ve just been admiring quite a few new things from Toast for summer. I especially love all the easy chambray, linen and cotton dresses in comfy, flattering shapes. There are also lovely, versatile jumpsuits and skirts and LOTS of sweet striped pieces. Plus, it’s so nice that shipping to U.S. or Canada is only £7 (about $10). More HERE.













Hello! Happy Friday! I’ve got a lot of plans, but I’m trying to take it slow and easy because I somehow tweaked a neck muscle and I’m out of sorts. Our niece is staying with us again this weekend and we’re going bowling with friends (I’ll probably only be able to cheer), to Teresa’s baby shower (so excited for this babe!) and hopefully some gardening. I’ve been obsessed with my new Tasha Tudor book — I have lofty goals to create an English cottage garden in our tiny space, so I’m sketching out plans and ogling everyone’s yard like a total flower perv. Anyways, I hope your weekend is fantastic! See you back here Monday. xo Jen
