A Sip of Summer

Good morning, lovelies! With all the dreary weather we've been having this week my mind has been wandering into serious summer teritory. Forget all of this spring business. It's been so rainy and unpredicatable that I'm desperately longing for the hot, long summer days. I'll even take the humidity that comes with it since I can always turn to refreshing cocktails for an instant cool down.

Hope you're having a lovely week! xoxo

A sip of summer indeed. That drink is perfect for a radiant summer day and the dress; I adore Yellow - reminds one of the sun;-)

I would love a good dose of extreme humidity at this point too. Lovely pictures!

I'm not a humidity lover but I might just turn into a convert with all this blinking rain...so depressing. I can't wait for some warm and a delicious cocktail to go with...dreaming of more 'Lust for Lifes' for sure:) xo

These yellow and green toned photos are such a refreshment, a perfect description of your longing for summer. We've been having a fantastic weather, it's so wonderful to start the day with the sun shining. :)

Ugh... more rain. Depressing. I'd rather have it now that in the summer months and our lawn looks amazing. I love how you put your posts together.. I can't get over here fast enough. I hope you never stop blogging, that would be a sad day for me. xo

The weather is finally warming up where I am (about time!). I personally cannot wait for perfect patio weather, chic sunglasses and a citrus-y cocktail.

B. in the Know said...

Oh that drink looks so good right about now. It has been sunny all week while I have been in the office, but it is supposed to rain this weekend - sad - I am hoping the sun stays to play so I can have a little taste of summer!
Much love,
B

I love the yellows and greens that are going on in these images! Sorry the weather's been so dreary over there. You should come to Europe! We definitely have spring over here! Although I wouldn't mind slightly warmer summer temperatures either.

Alexa said...

There is just something about the color yellow that always makes me smile. These images are gorgeous!
