Good morning, lovelies! And for my friends in the northern hemisphere, happy first full day of summer!

It's felt like summer for a few weeks now already and I'm not complaining one little bit. I just love this season and all the wonderful activities that come along with it, beaching, outdoor dining, rooftop drinks, bbqs, picnics. I could go on and on. I've already been taking full advantage of it all and I'm so looking forward to many more months of it. Here's hoping to a long and fun-filled summer!

Hope you all have a fabulous day! xoxo

This is so pretty, Dawn. I am chuckling over the model laying in the middle of the golf course which is exactly what I would end up doing if Tim dragged me golfing! xo

It's all summer over my side of the world. And I love it! There's only a month of rainy season for some layering and I'm kinda liking it too.

Beautiful photos! Love the first one with all the nice details. :)

Yay for the summertime!!! Mine is looking a little more "attitudinal" than this right now...I'm rockin' out to some Avril Lavigne and thinking I should do some crazy dancing to it as well (c: But hey, who am I to pass on some soft and quiet downtime??? Never. (c:

I am so missing home right now, summer and holidays just do that for me, you'll have to (selfishly) show me some city images to keep me from sinking into my home sickness.

That bathing suit top in the first picture is perfection! I need a new bathing suit and ruffles like that would be adorable!
Summer has definitely hit here! I tried staying indoors all day since it was 105 outside!
I am glad you are enjoying your summer so much :)
