Summer is that exciting time of bringing out your colorful and bright dishes, table cloths, and napkins.  Anthropologie had some new inspiring pieces in a few weeks ago that screamed summer!  Here are some pictures of their beautiful things for your summer inspiration.

This is how you wear a Summer scarf – it needs to be either light weight or silky in texture

This one looks heavy, but is actually light – perfect for an indoor summer affair, or for those rainy summer days, and easily taken off in the heat.

A few beautiful things….

Anthropologie, the store that inspires me always.  When you walk in you are met with the intoxicating smell of their Volcano candle, which is heaven.  They also play delicate & intriguing music in the background, not uncommon to hear a little Madame Peyroux.
