inspired by; summer in a garden

I’ve been spending pretty much every dry day in my garden. Soaking in sunshine, dinners, gardening some supervising projects. The contractors are working on the lower level deck as we speak. Once they are done, which I hope is in a day or so, we have to stain and finish it along with our existing upper level deck. I also scored a set of green round wrought iron table and two chairs from one of our neighbors and it fits perfectly into my {in progress} potting shed/ tea area. my vision for this indoor-outdoor space is something like this.

Which brings me to this post. Toast UK’s summer catalog is filled with great art direction, gorgeous locations and, of course, cute outfits. Now, Im getting even more ideas for my garden.

This red polka dot bikini has my name written all over it.

How charming is this stone patio? I want!!

I might just have to give these casual and super comfy pants a try.

Just a few days of warmer sunny days have me already planning my spring summer wardrobe. I am dying to kick off my uggs and slip into skimpy sandals and one of these pretty summery outfits by Finnish designer Johanna Uurasjarvi.

In the eyes of Uurasjarvi, the Leifsdottir customer is hip, optimistic, curious, and cultured. She is a modern woman, who wants to look pretty and polished, while showing off her personality. Because of this, she is drawn to the charm and soul of Leifsdottir.

A girly girl, Im soready to add multiple pieces from leifsdottir’s spring collection. To see more, visit and shop leifsdottir.
