Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links

Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links 03.07.17

ON SUNDAY we packed a wicker basket filled with baguettes, cheeses, jamón ibéricopâté and something fizzy to drink and went to the gardens to lounge away a beautiful day in the sun. We found a perfect spot nestled amongst trees grouped in circular pattens, forming small open spaces in their midst that beckoned the laying down of a blanket and the kicking off of one’s shoes to feel soft grass on bare feet. Since most of our picnics occur at the seaside, this one was a lovely change, the rustling of the leaves and the sound of cicadas intermingling in the late-afternoon air heavy with the scent of blossoms and dreams. It was a perfect way to spend a summer’s day.

This week’s links include floral summer dresses and a guide to Lisbon, the truth about beauty products, a chic café in London and much, much more …
