Happy Independence Day!!
Happy 4th of July to all my beautiful Yanks, wherever you may be! I hope you have your floaties filled, your bars and pantries stacked, playlists primed and friends and family drawn near. It’s ON!
But back to me My blog facelift is almost ready for unveiling, maybe even tomorrow! (squelched squeal) That’s not to say there mightn’t be a bit of bruising, swelling, and latex free bandages trailing here and there, but I know you’ll bear with me, right?
Because just about now I’m feeling like the worst date ever. All promise, no delivery. But SRSLY. I continue to have the best of intentions and if you need me to come in and talk to your parents I will.
In the meantime, just a few images of my #1 favourite (OK, except for black & white, duh) combo to get us primed for the weekend;
A red & white beauty from my garden this Spring
The Red & White Stripes are back…not that they ever go away!
and remember, it doesn’t have to be ALL flip-flops & Birkenstocks all weekend folks…we can make an effort…
And I don’t care how great you look with a tan- fuggedaboudit. NO MORE TANNING!
I have a great upcoming post about this subject. Stay tuned.
Have you considered how cool a belt looks (in this case, Hermes) over a scarf tied at the waist?? I bet not.
Hey-It’s called INCENTIVE People.
It’s all about will power. and priorities. and when to say “It’s a HOLIDAY!”
Time to chill out.
I challenge you to find me one photo where even the smallest gesture towards red & white stripes doesn’t seem hopeful
They bring life to the most sombre of situs
Pomegranite Spritzer, Ojai Valley Inn & Spa.
and if we can’t go to Greece this summer, we can certainly slip-cover a chair.
Well, most of us…
I could work so much faster if I had a red & white striped chair!
That someone could slipcover for me.
Who wouldn’t be happy here? I bet there’s wine in that bag.
Don’t forget to take lots of pictures- Everyone will thank you afterwards. Polaroids are still fun. A photo you can hold in your hand. What a concept.
Possibly my favouritist Swatch.
So, recap; Lashings of sunscreen, wide brimmed hats, well stocked bar, stuffed fridge, everything that can possibly float blown up, camera batteries charged, tunes in order, fresh flowers, stripes and decent footwear mandatory.
And you will be looking out for my new blog…
After all, some people are barely recognisable after face-work.
This time last year…Red & White Stripes Redux
Stripes Galore! …Red & White Stripes II
One more and we have Stripes!..Red & White Stripes III
