Summer Lovin {Al Fresco Style}


After a particularly hot and humid few weeks, the past few days have been rather pleasant here. For the first time in weeks, rather than be couped up in air conditioning or being right next to some sort of body of water while wearing only a bathing suit, I'm actually considering venturing outdoors once again to dine in the beautiful fresh summer air. Days like these make me wish that summer will never end. Now if only I had that garden... :)

How has the weather been by you lately? Hope you've all been enjoying pleasant days!


Oh and don't forget to enter the Perricone MD Cold Plasma giveaway! Remember for all you tweeters, you can tweet every day for extra entries.


Good luck to all! xoxo

Am welcoming the rain after much sun.
It's quite cooling and charming to sit on one's balciny and watch the rain peel down.

Yes it has been hot but I had a lovely lunch outside with my colleague yesterday and it was so nice to sit outside on the patio and enjoy our meal.

I would love to be sitting in that outdoor dining area in the last photo - it looks magical.

Yes, it definitely has been a bit more bearable here in New York. I hope this continues.

Have a lovely day!

It's cooler over here, too. But too cool. And now I miss the sun, the heat, eating outside... Why does it have to be either or?

Marie-Ève said...

It's still quite nice and warm but the heat wave is definitely over. Great summer so far! :-) I want that lunch, please.

Lovely pictures. I have been enjoying summer evenings mostly because the days are HOT. But while I am away this week I am introduced to 60-70 degrees again. I am actually cold! I hope your week is going well!

Hello - am new here. Found you via my friend Stacey-Ann over at Design Addict Mom.

Lovely alfresco inspiration.. A distant dream for us here in Sydney at the moment as we push through the last bout of Winter.. Soon though, Spring will be here and life will be bright, yummy and full of outdoor moments like these. Can't wait.
