London Calling

I love blouses in the warm weather...casually worn with skinny jeans or denim shorts or over a bathing suit. Nothing to me is more summery & classic than liberty florals. Perfect ones are made of soft, broken in fabric that's just light as air. 

I love the idea of using this look  for decorating as well! Purl Soho has lots of beautiful Tana Lawn fabric, sold by the yard, from Liberty of London. This would be great for making pillows for the porch! We have a large white porch swing that I love reading and knitting on. It would be so cozy to stack a few soft pillows in contrasting floral prints....the detailing is just terrific. I love the vintage inspired look that's perfect for a lazy afternoon! To everyone celebrating Mother's Day....happiest of days! xo
