In the summer I love an extra hit of girly-pink in my life. I think it's that I can finally rock all my dresses that stare at me so longingly in the closet all winter. Nothing screams feminine like dresses! So today's Things that make me Happy is all about pink, and my always favorite: white!
Speaking of dresses, I am so in love with this classic summer dress from Alberta-local Splurge & Co. White, light weight. It is my idea of the ideal Summer uniform.
There's a little blue in this mix, but I've been hoarding vintage sheets, fabric and craft supplies like there is no tomorrow. I can't give you all the details today but I have some fun news to share in the next week! I'm hoping a few of you local ladies will give me a hand in coming up with some creations involving these pretties.
My sister in law and I had a pretty successful thrift run a couple weeks ago. Latte bowls, a Crate & Barrel creamer and vintage sheets were a handful of my favs.
Can we talk about hospital blankets for a moment? It sounds crazy but they are amazing for summer evenings (and those of us who don't have AC). We've put away the duvets and started a small collection of second hand hospital blankies. Weird? maybe.
But they all seem to have a perfect cream color with stripes in different patterns and colors that blend perfectly into our color scheme. And they are super comfy. Sean was a little if-y on them at first. But he was suddenly on board the first night it was above 25 celsius LOL.
I added two old-school ikea floral shams to our bed and it's funny how fast they take it from classic tradtional to girly slumber-party-chic. It may annoy the Mister but I need a temporary dose of floral now and again. And summer feels like the right time to get my fill.
even if it's just for a few weeks. What has been making you happy lately? Anything Pink???
