a few of my favorite things | august

Happy Friday loves!

I hope you had a wonderful week.  August is here which means we only have a few weeks of summer left.  I plan to hold onto them and cherish the summer weather as much as I possibly can, it has gone by so quickly this year, are you all feeling the same way?
Here are some of my favorite things of the moment.


1 | A place to recharge.  This hammock looks like a lovely place to spend a quiet summer afternoon.
2 | why don’t we?  life is so short and I’ve been reminded of this a great deal lately, I hope you will take some time to celebrate with wine and sweet words this weekend.
3 | I love a great clutch.  I have accumulated a collection of old and new over the years and love integrating them into my evening looks.  this floral clutch by j.crew is a great summer wardrobe piece.
4 | I am not sure about you but when the clock strikes five today I will be pouring myself a cocktail.  This summer blackberry gin libation sounds perfect to kick off this summer weekend {recipe below}.
5 | This ivory fringed chateau georgette dress by ALICE by temperley is an adorable evening dress.
6 | A good bar cart styled well with a few bottles of your favorite spirit, a textured tray and vintage glasses is always a lovely addition to a home.  I pinned this one by Arteriors home, this week as I like the modern round shape with a vintage finish.

So with that, I wish you a beautiful weekend filled with some of your favorite things.
