Mellow Yellow...OOTD

Italian Linen Dress 

Loose and cool 
an easy way to dress for summer.

Added interest...near the hem.

Ready for a wee gathering at a friend's home.
Appetizers and bubbly!

Amanda Blu flip flops

Keeping hydrated in the intense heat wave that we had is important.

Lots of fluids and ice...
I made several jugs of homemade lemonade which we sipped throughout the days.

It is slightly cooler now and for that I am grateful.
So are the parched roses and plants in The Humble Bungalow Garden.

We purchased this buttery yellow beauty this Spring and planted it it a pot.
Love the bold shade and the fragrance is delightful.

I had a reader send me an email that she could no longer comment on my blog and I am not at all sure why that is happening?

Summertime Blues...

Himalayan Blue Poppy 
snapshot from my latest visit to Butchart Gardens.

These poppies are so pretty but are not all that easy to grow.
I had some about 10 years ago and they lasted for a few seasons and then they disappeared.
I have toyed with the idea of buying the seed packet from Butcharts and trying my hand at growing them again.

Old Navy Boyfriend Jean Jacket.
Very soft
and super comfy to wear.

Purchased in the store at 30% off the regular price.

It is very versatile and I love it with my white Tees and jeans.
(with pearls)
I added this scarf from France.

This scarf was in a subscription box from My Stylish French Country Home.
I think they sell them in their online store. 

There are a few rips which gives the denim character...
I wear this with my blue and white striped Talbots linen skirt.
My black UPP capris. and black lace top...
I popped it over a black dress
and can imagine that this will become a workhorse in my wardrobe.

We received our second vaccinations this morning and I am very pleased that we were able to get the second shot.

There is a sense of calm now as we move toward opening up things here in Victoria.
Dining inside is permitted, as are movie theatres and plays.

Looking forward to being more social.
Seeing our family and more friends.

How are things going where you live?
