It has been way to long since I have seen all of your lovely faces!! Well, not literally, but when I think of you seeing my pictures it is like I am seeing your face...weird I know, but seriously it has been a couple of weeks since a proper post was published, so to make up for the lost time here is a little something to help you cool off in the summer and shade your face from the sun.
Tuesday was the day I had planned to take pictures for a post. Since I worked that day I had to take the pictures when I arrived back home, therefore all day I was planning on what I would add to my outfit and where I would take the pictures. Well, I decided on wearing a hat (which I never wear). It turned out to work quite nicely with my ensemble and I almost felt like an accomplished English Lady moseying about in her orchard :)
You all might remember this dress as my Easter dress? Back then I promised to have a real post featuring the dress and I finally have one (yay)! This dress was my first eShakti dress and is definitely one of my favorites, not only because of the flattering style, but also because of the light airy fabric and light spring colors. I actually had to take the dress bodice in after I received it because I had ordered it a bit to large, but everything worked out and I felt ready to attend an afternoon tea party (speaking of which I should really host one!)
What better way to cool off in the summer heat than with a large glass of lemonade because nothing says summer quite like a lemon tree! A huge bushy lemon tree with hundreds of green baby lemons just waiting to ripen into giant plump yellow lemons. However, in the mean time you can cool off with a glass of tart lemonade made from frozen lemon juice harvested from last years crop (at least that is what we do at home).

Well, I am off to make myself a cup of tea and wish I were in England.
Cheerio dear readers until next time!
