HAPPY WEEKEND + LINKS

links

It’s hard to believe that July is just two short weeks away, but you’ll be glad it’s here when you see J.Crew’s newest arrivals for the month. A ruffle-sleeve top is “neon flame” is exactly what my summer wardrobe needs.

Watermelon is my very favorite fruit – especially around this time of year. I eat it every single day so I’m always trying to come up with new recipes for it. This spicy salad (with avocados) is on my weekend must-make list.

This is a dining room of my dreams. The vintage Paul McCobb chairs seal the deal for me.

My favorite summer dinnerware from Kim Seybert is on major sale at Neiman Marcus. Scoop it up while you can!

You all know I love a good beach house. Check out the design elements that are key to the best ones.

I used to hate avocados (and broccoli, along with many other things). Now, I eat an avocado almost daily. Why the change? This article explains why our tastebuds now love the things we used to hate.
