The Way to Do Summer....


doesn't this image just scream

or this one....
  fontana de trevi in Roma,
evoking images of Sophia Loren like this one...


& as I celebrate my birthday I remember thinking, back to the time when she looked like this,
that she was so much older than me :)'s,
and now I think just how beautiful she actually was and still is.

the fact that we age is an entirely different subject (which I will get to eventually this summer),
but for now we are talking WHITE APPAREL...

& the pier in front of the Carlton Hotel in Cannes,

KANYE WEST s/s 2012

I know you won't believe this, but it's a design of Kayne West,
& I do love it !

don't you love those red toes?
you see, this is like a little gift, both to the woman and the people who see them.
a tiny way to take care of yourself so that it shows & yet it's your's.
and the sandals?  yep, I love them too !

white Beautiful gorgeous pretty flowers
& along with white clothes we need white flowers, any kind of white flower will do,
but summer means white to me.

White is great for Summer, but you need a tan.
