Happy Thursday, lovelies! So if you couldn't tell by now, I'm kinda on a kick. Actually it's not one kick, it's a few of them....

I'm loving big rimmed hats, I'm craving yummy food, and I'm just swooning over the idea of eating said food outdoors which is exactly what I plan to do this weekend.

In addition to this Garden Party I hope to have I think I'd like to start the weekend off with a little brunch al fresco. Sounds splendid to me!

Ah the weekend's almost here...I can just about taste it! :)

Eating outdoors in the summer is the best!! A brunch is a fabulous idea as long as there's some Prosecco or mimosas!!! ;)

when I was a young preteen girl in the 70's I had this adorable wide brimmed kind of floppy hat like the first picture & I thought I was such a princess in it....I would wear it whenever I could - my mum was so good at having us girls in up to date fashions despite living in the country, thankyou mum I am indebted!
