things i am loving this week:
~ coconut oil. but you guys knew that already.
~ my kids. i always love them (duh), but they are extra huggable this week.
~ my parents. they are on a month-long trip exploring their ancestry. they have been talking about doing this for years, and i'm so happy that they finally did it!
~ summer. i read this quote by f. scott fitzgerald, “And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer." i guess it's literally and figuratively true, but there is something about summer that makes me feel refreshed. and a minnesota summer is a thing of beauty!
~ bike rides. chris and i went for a bike ride to a beautiful outdoor restaurant the other night. it was perfect.
and here are a few other things we are loving this week.
|watercolor world map|
people who know me, or people who have ever seen the inside of my house (i suppose they are one in the same, why would someone who doesn't know me be in my house??) know that i have a love for both maps and wall hangings. this lovely watercolor encapsulates my love for both!
|anchors away dress|
wouldn't this be perfect for the fourth of july? or just for summer? or for any time?
|sea foam and coral summer halter|
yes, i love maxi dresses. i would wear them all summer. and this one...i would wear this one all summer if it were mine. i love everything about it!
|vintage pastel summer sandals|
how pretty are these? they are perfect for summer...with dresses, shorts, for biking, walking. i love them!
|lace tiered shorts|
i know i'm a bit behind on the lace shorts trend. but i still love them, and still don't own a pair. that needs to change!
josie is wearing the elusive-to-me perfect sweater in this post. and of course it's from ireland, so i have little chance of getting one myself. i know these sweaters are all over, in every store...but i still can't seem to find the right one. josie looks gorgeous in hers. and can we talk about her pants, too? i might need those!
if you follow me on instagram (@meglets), you know that i am buying a ton of stuff for the wedding. i found these dart boards last night at the thrift store and bought them all (six). at $1.99 each, i just couldn't resist.
i collect vintage, wooden push and pull toys for mimi (and soon to be new baby!). these are not vintage, but they sure are darn cute! i may need to get a set!
such a pretty skirt! i love the full shape, the pleating, the colors and the print is amazing. acorns and lemons? obviously!
i love coffee. a lot. so if you ever get one of these cards from me you will know how much i love you! a whole lot. check out this whole shop for tons of adorable (and eco-friendly!) greeting cards and other super cute items!
such a sweet dress! i want to wander around paris wearing this. doesn't it seem perfect for that? now if only i had plans to visit paris anytime soon!
oh man, i love these wedges. the bright pop of orange makes me so happy!
check out this blog and you will fall in love with maddie just like i have. she is amazing and such a good sport!
check out these cute blondies! i am watching megan's kids today and i just took this photo of henry reading to the girls. so sweet. mimi loves cousin time!
