still a city girl at heart

We got a little warm weather this week, which apparently means bugs. Andy has to remind me every year that living in an older house, in the "country" (I never know what to call where we live; it's a little bit country, a little bit suburbia--no, not very rock n' roll), there are bugs. Which, y'know is fine. Unless they are mosquitoes. Or, as I experienced yesterday, yellowjackets. In my work space!

Nonetheless, I have heroically managed to bring you this week's shop preview.

  1. such a lovely selection! I love how you always mention the label...all nostalgic, sweet middle class everyday things, and I really like that.
    mmm, yeah, yellowjackets are mean!

  2. gosh, I love those day dresses! Especially the lemonade seersucker and pink gingham.
    And I KNOW what you mean about mosquitoes and wasps/bees/hornets. Thankfully, I really like the smell of citronella because there will be an overload of the stuff around here soon.
    Have a great weekend, Karen!

    love the oversized flower print dress.
    hate yellowjackets. with a passion.
