happy wednesday, gang! can you believe March is quickly coming to an end?! time is, literally, marching on. while the band plays on, i am enjoying every minute of my new backyard. the birdfeeders are filled. hanging plants were purchased along with herbs for my herb garden. and i started to tweak my new outdoor rooms. a bar cart that lived on my screened porch moved to the main patio. the empty space was filled with an adorable opens in a new windowwhitewash baker’s rack from opens in a new windowBallard Designs. the only catch was that yours truly had to put it together… after sitting in its box for over a week, i finally devoted an evening to assembling said opens in a new windowbaker’s rack. love it! now i can store my melamine plates and acrylic glasses on the porch. hooray! the screened porch is a favorite place of mine to dine al fresco. nothing better than a backyard barbecue. today, i have an outfit that’s fit for a backyard barbecue or any casual outing.
speaking of barbecues, it’s time to fire up the grill and invite my clan over. i spotted the cutest outdoor game at opens in a new windowWayfair that will be perfect for such a soiree. it’s an oversized opens in a new windowConnect Four which my family loves to play. when it’s time to head to the beach, it can easily travel with me. i also purchased a giant tabletop version of opens in a new windowJenga. nothing better than game night, especially when game night heads outside. can you tell i’m more than ready for spring-like temps and the chance to spend lots of time outdoors enjoying the flora and fauna?
outfits fit for a backyard barbecue
yes, i have a pair of trusty opens in a new windowgreen pants back in action today. this time they’re a pair of opens in a new windowpaper bag joggers (wearing a size medium) from opens in a new windowBanana Republic that come in three colors and are so light and airy to wear. since the weather was mild, a opens in a new windowwrap blouse from opens in a new windowAnthropologie was the perfect companion. i just loved the color scheme of this blouse. it looks as if it stepped out of a Monet painting. the opens in a new windowblouse looks fantastic with green pants, but i envision it with white denim or even a pair of light blue chinos or light rinse denim. lots of choices which i always love to have. i do think i could have sized down one size with the blouse. the weather was mild enough to wear sandals, so i slipped into a pair of pink wedges (old, similar opens in a new windowhere and opens in a new windowhere) from opens in a new windowEileen Fisher. what an easy peasy outfit to throw together at a moment’s notice.
