Shades of Summer

lacy necklineSummertime and the living is easy! I love the shades of summer and mint has always made me feel cool and fresh like a summer breeze.

My dear friend Maggie recently returned from a trip overseas and brought me back this lovely tank top with a delicate, lacy trim around the neckline. It goes well with my off-white capris and I’m ready to relax on my Muskoka chair and smell the flowers.

It’s a good morning for catching up on some reading with a fresh banana/strawberry smoothie. Then I’m on my way to teach three dance classes this afternoon.

What is your favourite colour this summer?

Have a great week!!

    A lovely tee shirt, Carmen, that nice gift. I love this color so soft, and I love the lace detail at the neckline is very pretty. With the capri, and the beautiful sandals, you’re really cute.

      Thank you, Josep-Maria! I’m glad you like it. It’s casual but it’s best to wear casual outfits for dance classes. I love to dress up more, so I’m happy when I have opportunities to dress elegantly.

      Pura vida – life is good!!

  4. Love the top. The lace detailing looks so pretty! Thanks for sharing the photographs 🙂
    White is my all time favorite summer color, but I am hugely into bright and vibrant colors and prints all summer 🙂

      Thank you, Sarmistha!

      I love white and also vibrant colours! My problem is that summer is never long enough to wear all my summer clothes. The shops are already selling fall clothes. 😦

      I took a peek at your blog, you are a very fashionable and I’ll read more later!
