JUNE 2018

A Part of the Rest - June Mood - Picnic 2.jpg

 

It's JUNE! Which means the air is warming up and we all have that extra kick in our step as we are feeling a little lighter without all of the layers. Isn't there something so freeing about not carrying around a sweater and a coat?

This month our mood has us seeking out the "Splendor in the Grass", where we can run barefoot, sit on the ground, enjoy the nature around us in the brink of summer with a good picnic. A good gingham blanket and a vintage basket bag are always the perfect accessories for a pair of cut offs and a romantic frilly cotton top. Check out below for my picks of picnic ready essentials.

Last month, we debuted some new things to our site which you can read about here. We are on a roll with the world of vintage out there, so this month we're expanding even more to add some fun weekly inspirations including "The Vintage Traveler" where we give you suggestions on how to be trip ready in vintage & sustainable + A weekly selection of my FAVORITE vintage pieces out there, and available for you online. 

Okay, have fun peeking through and discovering what the world of vintage has to offer for the month of JUNE!

 

What's going on this month . . .

 

SPLENDOR IN THE GRASS copy.jpg

We have always romanticized the idea of a picnic.

A perfect early summers day, a chic vintage bag with a bottle of rose and a smorgasbord of farmers market produce in the most perfect colors splayed out on a platter. A baguette, some olives and goat cheese... I could go on! 

Here are some of my suggestions for having some splendor in the grass this June.

Nothing like an easy but feminine cotton dress to join the picnic party in. We love this vintage LANZ dress for its bright colors, its fun but still understated for a day in the park

Green Quartz & Green Calcite both give off positive energy for universal love connected to the Heart Chakra.

Nothing like some stone energy to keep us grounded

LET YOUR SOUL LOOSE

I have heard so many amazing things about this book from  MULTIPLE sources and FINALLY got around to reading it. There is no wonder why irt's a bestseller, as you feel good just opening it and deciding to dive in. 

An inward journey to open up your soul and the clarity for bright and blissful future within.
