We enjoyed a delightful Saturday afternoon in Blowing Rock, NC, where we briefly stopped to see the swans in the pond at Chetola Resort.
Along with lighter colors and more open weave textures, I wear a more delicate fragrance in summer. Jo Malone 154 here has top notes of mandarin orange.
I bought this top in white and black to wear when the heat and humidity are at peak levels. The length is perfect for my inverted triangle shape, and the elastic sleeves can be pushed up for a slimming effect.
All the birds were seeking shade and molting their feathers to cool off.
Even the fading summer blossoms are beautiful.
I hope you find a cool, shady spot to curl up and read a good book today. I bought this one yesterday as I perused in Blowing Rock Antiques. About seven years ago, Christopher Spitzmiller & Anthony Bellomo began the restoration of a historic Greek Revival farmhouse in the Hudson Valley of New York.
The book was a compromise. I wanted everything in this store!
