I Want to Eat Outside!

For some reason, I absolutely love to eat outside.  I love eating and I like the outside so it's a perfect combination for me.  Now if I'm eating outside with a view of the ocean ...well then it is a perfect day in my book. 

These pins are fantastic inspiration for my next dining alfresco experience at home.

Oh, How Pinteresting Wednesday

I'm linking up with The Vintage Apple again this week to share some of my most recent favorite pins. 

Right now I'm kind of obsessed with picture of beautiful plants and flowers decorating porches and backyards.  Maybe it is because we haven't had rain in 22 straight days (and counting) and pretty much everything outside of my house is dead.  Although I do have one pot of petunias that I am faithfully watering that are trying to hold on!  I always have grand plans for our yard but somehow it never quite makes it!

I'm linking up with The Vintage Apple today to share my current favorite pins.

How pretty is this?

I would like to be here drinking some expresso...

It's a painted garbage can turned upside down!  Genius!

Cute Dresses for Hot Days

It's been a hot spring already and it looks like the summer is going to be just as hot. When the temperature reaches the 90's all I can think about wearing is an easy, cool sun dress.  Here are just a few I like.  All are under $50.

Another Frugal Option for Marc by Marc Jacobs' Straw Canteen Bag or My Only Investment in The Neon Trend

I blogged about the Marc by Marc Jacobs Preppy Straw Canteen Bag a few weeks ago (you can see that post here).  I really love this cute summer bag! 

I'm not a big fan of bright colors, let alone neon, but I have been intrigued by the neon trend and thought I could work it in with my mostly gray and tan wardrobe somehow.  So when I found a similar style to the Marc Jacobs bag that had a neon strap for $4.99 at Macy's (I know!  Only $4.99!) I had to buy it.

MARC BY MARC JACOBS 'Preppy' Straw Canteen Bag
$158 – Nordstrom

Here is the one I bought at Macy's in the junior department (even though I am SO not a junior):

Yep, this is the only neon you are going to see me sporting and for only $4.99 I had to get it! 

(BTW, they also had blue and pink plus the strap is adjustable to it can be a crossbody style or shoulder bag.)
