Beads & Patterns

It's becoming quite the challenge for me to just sit down and work these days. All I want to do is spend my time doing summer activities of all sorts. I'm subconsciously trying to remind myself that it's work that pays for these sorts of occasions. I've got in mind to get some pretty patio furniture, in hopes that maybe soaking up some sun on our deck will satisfy my urge to drop all responsibility and head down to the lake.

As I noted yesterday, beaded tops are my summer style crush. This is my first to own, but I'm itching to get my hands on a few more before the season ends. The purse is courtesy of Handbag Heaven. I was delighted when they asked if I would be a part of their current project, Handbag Heaven. I'll be sure to share a link once the interview and such is complete.
