HAPPY WEEKEND + LINKS

jumpIt’s officially hot. Really hot. We reached our first triple digit temperature yesterday, and, from what I’m hearing, we’ll be right back up there today. Which is why you’ll be able to find me in the pool. All weekend. I’ve got no major plans (don’t you love those kinds of weekends?) except for crossing things off of my to-do list and partaking in a little SSB (read Molly’s post here) while my husband is out of town. This means catching up on all of my mags, getting take-out from here and lots of frozen yogurt. Sounds exciting, doesn’t it? Happy Weekend!

For your weekend perusal:

  • Island style: Ever since my trip to Harbour Island, I’ve had a fascination with India Hicks. She’s got that whole gypset look that I love. And not just in her closet. Take a peek at her Harbour Island home and you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about. 
  • Speaking of home: Have you checked out Calypso’s Maison sample sale? Lots (and lots!) of good steals here. You find rugs for under $100 and some adorable throw pillows that would work for so many different styles.
  • Prep for the Fourth: I’ve told you all before: I love the Fourth of July. It’s such a fun holiday – sparklers, fireworks, and all of that red, white and blue! I do love to dress to the theme. For the day, I’m thinking a pair of these star-spangled shorts with my striped tee. For the night-time festivities, I love this navy and white dress paired with some simple sandals and fun accessories.
  • Happy hour: With all of the fun festivities going on, we’ll need a cocktail (or two). I just discovered this Pinterest-looking site dedicated solely to libations. Plenty of inspiration there!
