Summer Travel: Ready for the Beach?

Summer months are almost here! The beach waves are calling out to me! Last year was an incomparable summer and how I wish we could all be back again in Boracay!  Just a few more beach outings and I know I’ll learn how to swim.

A week-long vacation by the coast would be fantastic; to wake up by the shore in time for the sunrise; to breathe in fresh air; to run with our dogs by the shore; to feast on freshly-caught fish and shell fishes grilled on the coals; a tall glass of iced lemonade; to sit on the sand under the shades of a palm tree; to walk bare feet on the powdery sand; ahhh, simple pleasures that I imagine.

What are you summer plans?  Wouldn’t it be nice to just pack your bags and go?

Pretty Pastels for February

It isn’t too late for me to feature Free People’s 2012 February Catalog.  Lots of pastels in blue, pink, and yellow;  light and gauzy tops which are perfect for the summer. My super favorite: the Pacific Trails Pants from the FP One exclusive collection.  This flowing, wide leg pants has floral patterns, and like the other pieces from the FP One collection, is inspired by the traditional craftsmanship of Indian women.
