{Movie Time Snack} Fresh Fig Cake

Daily Comfort

{Shirt: Vintage}
{Shoes: Sketchers Bobs}
If I could only have one summer outfit, this would be it--white shorts, a shirt (either in white, pastel, or with fun prints), and a pair of comfortable shoes or sandals.  It best fits for what I usually do on my days off in the summer: visiting farmer's markets (like today), going out for brunch, walking my dog, riding a bike, or running errands.  If I want to go out for dinner later, all I need is to change into a dressier shirt (or put on a light blazer) and a pair of heels.  Easy, simple, and effortlessly chic in my opinion.

Let The Sun In

I worked all night last night (Oh yes, didn't sleep a wink).  My assistant was feeling a bit under the weather, so I took on more work.
I came home this morning with my body aching (when I'm really focused on work, I tend to      slouch) and my brain dead.  Driving home, all I could think of was sleep, sleep, & more sleep.  But when I actually got into my bed, I was wide awake...thinking about work with a few functional neurons left in my brain (Arghh!).  
Still tossing & turning.  Staring blankly into the ceiling, imagining it was a starry night sky (Hopeless!).  
Maybe some music would help, I thought desperately.  So I put this song--Siboney by Connie Francis (my current song obsession) on replay.  
Still awake.  I jumped out of bed, & opened all the blinds to let the sun in. I could see my peonies in full bloom now, filling up the room with its fragrance.   I felt a little better.  

Enjoyed my oatmeal.  I decided to eat something light, just in case I wanted to try to sleep...again.
Ate some more fruits.  Snapped some pictures.  Read some blogs.  Now more awake.
Hmm...Retail therapy sounds good.  I guess I'll go shopping :).

Have a good day everyone!

This trench coat is perfect for wearing outside my summer dresses at night.  The playful stripe pattern adds a little twist to the classic trench.  
Wishing everyone a great weekend :).

Cannot Have Enough Summer Whites

In current rotation:
{Allsaints Spitalfields top}
{Pour La Victoire Roma Satchel}
{Kelsi Dagger Andelyn Flower Sandals}
Wishing for these:
{ASOS Salon Shift Dress}
{Outdoor Canopy Bed}
{Lika Mimika Espadrilles}
Whenever I cross ONE item off on my wish list, TEN more are added.  It's like getting what I want just makes me wanting more.  Does that even make any sense?  Anybody feels the same?

{Wishing} This Were Mine

{Three Floor Bare-Neath Peplum Top}
I've searched high and low for my perfect peplum top & I finally found it. But as fate would have it, my size is sold out.  I am still happy just to look at it though :).
