This summer has been extremely busy, but I’ve managed to take advantage of any free moments by spending quality time with friends and family (without any electronic devices clutched in hand), reading (now absorbed by Gone Girl) and taking care of myself physically and mentally by getting out on hikes and taking tennis lessons. Here are a few of the little things I have enjoyed lately.
Lemon lime margarita salt shakers (from a pottery store) and my favorite vintage dish make for a summer-y cocktail bar centerpiece.
I put this succulent planter together a year ago (DIY here) and admire its growth and pretty hues (read: wonder how I haven’t killed the plants yet!) when I sit out on our patio in the warm evenings.
These nude leather ballet flats (via Banana Republic) go with everything. They are comfy, perfect for a grassy graduation (congrats to my little sister on finishing college) and flattering in a shade that nearly perfectly matches my skin tone.
A few rhinestones (and all-temperature glue via glue gun) jazz up an ordinary wine glass.
Veggie enchiladas (black bean, corn and chili) and chicken enchiladas (chicken, chili and cheese) and a Mexican-inspired fruit salad were perfect for hosting a game night with friends.
