Outdoor Inspiration

This weekend, we moved from sprucing the indoors to focusing on the outdoors for a while.  We brought some of our patio furniture from our old apartment with us to the new house, but we left a few pieces behind to opt for some updating.  Last summer I sewed classic black and white striped cushions for all the chairs, so I'm not throwing those out for the trash man, but this summer I am definitely skewing to a less preppy, more exotic look.  I already scored a beautiful Moroccan lantern to hang above the table and my mom is generously sending her Mexican blankets for me to add to the well-traveled, collected vibe.  I still have more flowers to plant and DIYs to execute, but I can't wait to share one of my new happy places with you soon.
