A Sunday in Summerville
Pink and Navy
Elsa helped to choose my outfit today, which matched her pick for herself. She LOVES to pick out, and put on her own outfits these days.
Welcome to our front porch! Our wreath is a fun bright and light pink mixture of peony with some green hydrangea and foliage to make a welcoming Spring to Summer entrance. Here is another wreath with the same flowers and colors with a little more density.
Our pineapple welcome mat matches a pink rod-iron chair I found at a Summerville Antique shop. (I painted it pink) our brass pineapple door bell adds a touch of fun, especially when your guests have young children. Here is a nickel version of the pineapple doorbell. These elements create a sense of whimsy to our front porch which must be welcoming and lovely.
What you can’t see next to my husbands golf shoes is a small can of sky blue paint that we will be using to paint the ceiling of our porches. More on that another time!
My top is navy, and made of silk. My shoes are old, but these shoes compliment this outfit, and make it less like a costume than a ballerina flat might look. Here is another similar pair, and this, this, and these ballerina flats would also look elegant.
Our daughter Elsa twirling like every little girl must! She was a vision in a salmon tutu dress and silver quilted ballerina flats. Here is a pair for you if you want to twin with your little one. We are still working on putting her hair up, or using a turban or bow. My little Southern Bellisima is full of happiness, independence, and creativity. I am so grateful for our lovely daughter.
Whenever there is an opportunity to twirl, I say take it!
