Hot Weather Finds

OK, I think it's safe to say the cold weather is gone.  We had 80 degree temps all last week, so I'm suddenly in the more for summer!  Here are my favorite summer finds.  I few I've already ordered - others I'm simply drooling over. 

I had one of these Friday night.  My hubby and I celebrated our 16th anniversary, and we started the evening at a fun local place where I ordered a John Daly (the mock version would be an Arnold Palmer).  It was so yummy.  It included sweet tea infused vodka (I like the firefly brand) and homemade lemonade!  A total summer cocktail.  Now you can pretend you're in the South too. 

I love this bag.  You can just throw what you need in and go.  Perfect for summer.

Craving simple salads.  Is it just me or does a salad always taste better when someone else makes it?  Same with coffee, for sure. 

The peonies are in full bloom here in Birmingham.  I adore this flower.  I tried to grow them one summer and the plant did not make it.  Some neighbors have them and I just wish I could grow them. 

I love entertaining outdoors.  This image just makes me want to lounge around with good friends and a glass of wine. 

So thrilled the farmer's market is back at Pepper Place.  I've also heard that starting the first week in June there will be one in Crestline village on Wednesday afternoons.  Will be super convenient for me!  There is nothing like a meal made with super fresh produce.  Love coming home with my bounty, turning on the tunes, opening the french doors to our back patio and cooking up something simple and delicious. 

Love the look of this outfit for a summer cocktail party.

I also love the idea of the outfit for an evening out after a full day at the beach.  Totally smitten with the dress and shoes.

I'm really wanting one of these to fill with water and cucumber slices to keep in the frig.  So refreshing.

Boy do I love a pretty cuff.  This website has a wonderful story too. 

Enjoy your Monday.  Summer is almost here. M.
