Summer Blues.

Sorry I went MIA yesterday– this week (and last) have been a beast.  Working motherhood sometimes kicks me in the ass and I just literally could not yesterday. Anyways, here I am with a little happy shot of color before everyone jaunts off for the holiday weekend.

Caitlin Wilson is a pro at happy, bright, bold color and her new summer collection of  accents and bistro chairs and stools do not stray from that. And a hefty portion of those goods in BLUE, which we all know I am obsessed with on all fronts right now. So I just wanted to quickly share them with you!

Everything shown here (my personal faves) are available on her e-commerce site! From rugs, to outdoor pillows, melamine tabletop and art. Lots to see.

How great are these bistro chairs in buffalo check??? I just LOVE them. Unabashedly preppy and great for beach and country houses alike!

I have decided to take next week off from blogging. I will post a Fashion Friday tomorrow and then check out for a little breather. I need it. Thanks for understanding.



  1. Go for it! I know I, like many of your devoted readers, am also taking next week off. You should too!

  2. Everything looks so delightful…especially the print with the oranges and the blue vase. I have the perfect spot for it! Hope you and your family enjoy the holiday and your break!

  3. I love Caitlin Wilson’s happy colorful style! And I agree, that print with the oranges and vase is beautiful. And no doubt a break for you is needed! I’m in the same boat with a sick 1 yr old. Relax and enjoy the holiday!

  4. Since I’m currently on vacation (from being retired … no, that would be going back to work) in Ashland Oregon for the Shakespeare Festival, I can hardly complain about anyone else needing a break. Well I can, but nobody would believe me.
    As long as you give me a solid dose of Fashion Friday blues, I’m good. Enjoy some sunshine.

  5. Working motherhood can be so, so overwhelming. You always seem to approach it with such grace! Hang in there. Toddlers are precious and adorable, but they are a special challenge. It gets easier. Here’s to a smooth summer for you and your family!

    And thanks for inspiring your loyal fans!

  6. Caitlin Wilson is one of my all time favorite designers, love her happy textiles, and the new bistro chairs are right up my alley. Summer breaks are good, I am feeling the same way. Have not blogged since last Monday. Enjoy your time with precious Henry and hubby!!

  7. It is so funny, she has a shop very near my house! I’ve been inside once, but I must go back.

  8. When I saw her blue buffalo check bistro chairs a few days ago, I thought Erin will go crazy about these:-)
    Enjoy your week off!

  9. I can only speak for myself , and as much as I love reading your blog – I think you should go to a “summer schedule” and just blog once per week for July and August. This will give you time to rest and rejuvenate. I think your loyal readers will understand. We all need a break now and then. Enjoy your time off.

  10. I can’t find the gorgeous picture on the right on her site. Are all the items in the below pic through Caitlin too?

    Have a great weekend with your fam!
