My Definition of Summer


 Sum-mer (noun): The time of the year in which you can stop and smell the flowers while wearing your favorite dress

This is one of my favorite flower smelling dresses. I got this romantic little lace Free People dress on sale over spring break at the Free People store in Woodmere, Ohio. The color is nice and warm for summer but can also be carried into the fall.

The photos below are just some that I took in my gardens at home.


Feeling Free in Free People

My dearest grandmother bought me this light green, floral, and lace Free People shirt at the end of this spring and at first I really wasn’t sure about it! I liked the idea of it, loved the colors, the pattern, the lace godets near the hem, but there was still something about the top that I was unsure of. The shirt sat in m closet for a couple of weeks before I finally decided to force myself to wear it for the first time when I went out to lunch with my grandmother. That’s when I finally fell in love. It made me feel like twirling around and picking flowers!

Love Love Loving Lavender!

I have always adored lavender, its color, its smell, and even the way it looks. After searching far and wide for the perfect lavender scented products, I can finally say that it is my signature scent this spring and summer! I found the perfect body lotion and perfume at L’Occitane and fell in love with an all natural lavender “body and soul wash” at Whole Foods earlier this week.

Made with real Lavender oils and was  truly love at first sniff!
