Maybe I’m jinxing things, but the weather has been pretty wonderful here. Not too hot, and perfectly sunny everyday. It’s significantly easier to be in a good mood when you don’t need two showers a day to avoid major stinkage. Thus, today’s Like A Picture captures the gorgeous summer sunlight we’ve been enjoying, even if (especially if?) it does look like a page out of an Anthropologie catalog. As much as I may be a born-and-raised city kid, even I can’t deny the appeal of a lush outdoor space like this. Anybody else want to meet me for a drink out here? I’ll bring the mosquito repellant, you bring the gin.
Ignoring the fact that the candle is actually Christmas-scented (weird), it looks like a tree (it is from a company called Baobab, after all) and plays well with the picture. The blanket is from West Elm and has a nice ombre tone going on, which mimics the light streaming in through the trees and the light and dark leaves. I am majorly in love with the tablecloth and those chairs; it’s all very French Provincial to me. Do you have an outdoor space where you live? A backyard that perhaps looks like that? Can I come over? All we have is a gated alley where we keep our trash. Ah, city living.
