A Few Pretty Things…

Every now and then, I feel an urge to indulge in my femininity. Lace, neutrals and light, flowy textures aside, there's something to be said for embracing the softer side of life. Inspired by a recent Country Living post showcasing a few doily decorations, I've rounded up my favorite "pretties" for the month:

Is there anything more lovely than soft linen, warm furnishings and plenty of fluffy, Scandinavian-inspired texture? We may be well into the dog days of summer, but I'm dreaming of days where wool is necessary, a light evening breeze calls for a hammock and pinecone collecting is in season once again.

Where better to enjoy my collection of pretty things than in a beautiful space like this one, full of plush, comfy couches and natural light? And because beauty is in the imperfect, a sweet picture of the healing process would jump-start any calming senses necessary.

How do you feel? Relaxed? Serene? Even [gasp!] feminine? Happy summer, friends — enjoy the rest of it before it's too late!
