The Perfect Summer Song

Ahhh, the weekend’s in full swing, people!  It’s a gorgeous 80 degree day down by the beach, my hubby and I are about to take a bike ride to visit our friends and their new babushka at the hospital, and then pick up the most delicious ice cream from an adorable old timey place in Santa Monica.  Life is good.  I hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend.  Let the below song take you through the rest of it.  I love it!  A great cover on an already great song.

Scenes From A Weekend

Morning, campers.  How was your weekend?  Mine ended up being completely delightful in every way.  First of all, the third partner-in-crime to me and Stephanie, our BFF Melissa, was in LA for the weekend.  Her presence is always like a sprinkling of fairy dust in my life.   And it just so happens her company was co-hosting a freaking fabulous Downton Abbey-themed party in Santa Monica Friday night, replete with pre-prohibition cocktails and more gorgeous flapper outfits than you can shake a stick at.  See below:

Me and the hubs got all spiffed up.  My dress courtesy of Rent The Runway, obvs.

Roaring Twenties decor, sigh.

Then, I got to have two consecutive slumber party nights with Melissa at her hotel, Shutters On The Beach, aka the most perfect, idyllic, adorably decorated, coziest hotel ever.  Situated right on the beach in Santa Monica, the place is a dream, a dream!:

(*Squeal*) John Robshaw bedding!  My favorite fabric designer, hands down.

Even their picture frames are perfect.

And then, Sunday:


Hope you all had an equally fun, relaxing weekend.
