Backyard and patio lighting

Recently, I’ve been thinking about backyards and patios a lot.  Summer makes me want to get outside and enjoy a cool summer night with a bowl of crisp watermelon and a good book.  I’ve seen a lot of pictures of cool backyard and patio lighting and they are so beautiful and welcoming.  When my friends first moved into their place, they invited us over for a housewarming dinner.  It was held in their back yard and we all had a ton of fun.  My friends had redone the year creating pockets of garden space and laying out tile for a small patio.  They strung simple string lights over the dining table outside and it was so intimate and lovely.

Caftans for summer

I’m planning a trip to the Maldives (eeeek!) and have been thinking about what to bring.  Some of the items I’m looking into are caftans for summer.  They offer good coverage, but can easily be thrown in a beach bag.  They can be slipped on over my bathing suits and I can readily wear the same outfit while grabbing a bite to eat.  Some caftans in more luxe styles and fabrics could also be worn at night as well.  I love the versatility of the style since that means less packing!

The full coverage of longer caftans is also great in vacation areas that are a bit more conservative. I like the idea of a caftan that is like a nice, loose maxi dress. Caftans for summer definitely seems like a good idea. My favorite caftans include a mix of sheer, shorter styles with a nice print to longer style in a sleeker, simpler cut.
