A lovely little arrangement I created for my bedside table with some grocery store flowers. I like that it looks like something you would pick from your home garden. It’s a simple way to add a little brightness to my morning.

Happy Friday! We’re going to the FYF Fest this weekend so make sure to follow along on Instagram ~ @LateAfternoon. I hope you all have a beautiful weekend.

This summer has been all about summer dresses for me. I’m totally guilty of getting stuck in mini style ruts. I often gravitate to certain shapes, cuts. and colors. Twirl worthy maxi dresses and pretty floral prints are always going to catch my eye. It’s part of my personal style and I’ve learned to appreciate having a certain aesthetic that works for me.

Easy breezy outfit for a Monday spent running errands.  I picked up beautiful hydrangeas for the house, my favorite Diptyque candle, and a couple of new cook books. Summer days in the city of angels are long and slow, just the way I like them.

I’m sure that by now you have all realized my love of France and my infatuation with the South of France and the region of Provence in particular. From the beautiful golden sunshine to the lavender fields that never seem to end, Provence exemplifies the “joie de vivre” (or exuberant enjoyment of life) ethos of French culture. Nothing has made my heart sing like the simple pleasures of picking fresh fruit and flowers grown in this sun-kissed countryside. It is no coincidence that many of the spots we visited during our stay in Provence, including the villa we rented, had soap and body washes from the iconic brand of Le Petit Marseillais™ . Born in Provence, the products capture the essence of the South of France and encapsulate the calm, generous feeling of the region. Le Petit Marseillais™  is the #1 body wash in France and now it’s available in the US, allowing you to get a small taste of the beautiful countryside and the aromatic scent of orange blossom, lavender and nectarines that accompany this beautiful place. To see the South of France for yourself, Le Petit Marseillais™ is hosting a sweepstakes for a chance to win a trip for two to Provence! You can enter at this link: http://us.france.fr/en/lpm.

This was shot on our second to last day in Paris. We are notorious for extending our trip and this time was no different.  We wanted to have a couple extra days in Paris to enjoy the beautiful weather and the gardens that were in full bloom. Our lovely little hotel was located right across the street from one of my favorite places in Paris the Jardins du Luxembourg. We spent the afternoon sipping rosé, and eating cheese with a close friend that was visiting from home. It was the perfect Parisian afternoon.

I’m back home now and even though we were gone for nearly three weeks it fells like we never left. It went by so fast and I’m wishing I was still there. The only thing left to do now is start planning on how to move there with three dogs.
