We believe in summertime – spontaneous afternoon picnics, slow moving carousals, midnight row boat rides, and linen…..always linen. We also think that this linen disguised as denim would make the most marvelous biker jacket – perfect for all summertime shenanigans. Pattern is from the wonderful folks at BurdaStyle and available at Britex Fabric’ SF store (Biker Jacket 03/2013 #135 ) This chic denim look linen is available in Britex Fabrics’ online store, and is on sale through May 31st.
Spring is finally here. The plum trees are shedding their pink petals like cats losing their undercoats. I’ve found an empty park bench, its dark green paint peeling slightly and the wood planks warmed by the afternoon sun. As flower petals drift onto my lap, I toss the starlings, sparrows, and pigeons the remains of my brioche and take another sip of my cooling latte. A particularly social songbird hops upon the shoulder of my wheat colored linen shirt, so I whistle a bar of “Non, je ne regrette rien” as I try to tempt her with a palm of cakey crumbs.
