Sunset At The Montage … SoCal Date Night Perfection


Our Southern California heat wave
made Friday night at  Laguna Beach's
a perfect sunset choice.

















If you ever find yourself in Southern California
in South Orange County

sunset at the Montage Hotel
in Laguna Beach
would definitely be on the top of my list of
must see!


As always my friends


I wish you love and joy
as you style your life





PS ~ to answer dear La Contessa's question  below…
No my silk DKNY dress is not new …
it has shown up
here
for my daughter's
Buon Viaggio Party
when she left to study in Italy


and
 here
for a stroll around our neighborhood lake.


I am so taken with this dress
I have been sketching all weekend
to create some new versions
for my up coming trip to Palm Springs!



Linking up with

The Style Crone's
Hat Attack

    1. So my dear … from my post addendum … my dress is far from new! But wearing it this weekend … made me realize I need more versions of this dress in my closet! It is such a joy to wear … especially since I still love my shoulders! :))

    2. and yes … the hyacinths form Roger's Gardens … made me swoon with delight when I saw they were so perfectly wrapped in burlap! It is actually a square of burlap that was sewn on the edges and then tied with twine! I am definitely adding this to my floral styling ideas!

  12. This entire post is simply breathtaking. The pure look of happiness from the evening is radiating through to all of us, so grateful you were able to capture this moment. It's a good thing you still love those beautiful shoulders because this dress was made for someone like you. Don't you just love being able to take something a bit old and make it new again just by changing your surroundings.
    And thank you for capturing and sharing the hyacinth's wrapped in burlap idea, what a great idea for gifts and floral accents around the home.
