{Wish I Was Wednesday} SOLO Eyewear

Daydream-In-Color-Wish-I-Was-Wednesday-Solo-Eyewear

T-Woods | Peacock | Tribal

Have you started your holiday shopping? I can’t believe how quickly we are approaching the end of the year. Today, instead of an artist I admire, I wanted to introduce you to a brand I admire, SOLO Eyewear. Not only are their bamboo shades stylish works of art, but their cause is wonderful too. Every purchase helps fund eye care for people in need. Each pair of sunglasses are handcrafted and prescription friendly! Plus, the ones with designs are hand painted by the artist. Amazing!

So, get your gift sunglasses orders in and feel great about getting shopping done and helping those less fortunate!

They’re offering to you lucky readers get 10% off SOLO Eyewear through 12/31/13 with code: SOLOten. They also offer free shipping to the contiguous US!

Which pair are your favorite?

In the mean time, I’m going to enjoy some beach time, lounging in the sun, and shopping so I’ll be back posting on Wednesday. I’m in total resort mode thus the banana leaves! I’m loving their bold pattern flair!

{Color Palette} Three Wooden Oars

Daydream-In-Color-Color-Palette-Three-Wooden-Oars

I’ve kayaked once in the past with A’s parents, but I’ve yet to try my hand in an old fashioned row boat. These beautifully worn oars have summer thoughts written all over them. (via Prepfection)

Have you ever rowed before?

{Color Palette} Desert Of Flowers

Daydream-In-Color-Color-Palette-Desert-Of-Flowers

Vintage looking desertscapes are inspiring me today (via Nasty Gal). It’s funny how many colors can actually show up in the desert. If you’re into deserts, you might be into this color palette too.

What’s catching your eye today?

Garden Nature

{Color Palette} Ladderful Of Apricots

Daydream-In-Color-Color-Palette-Ladderful-Of-Apricots

Summer’s all about the bright sun and bountiful fruit trees. I can’t wait for the tress I planted to bear fruit so that I can eat them sun warmed and fresh off the branch (via Bell Bottom Blues).

What’s your favorite summer fruit?

{Lust List} An Italian Summer

BKLYN Larder Gelato ($110/4) | Born Landis Wedges ($145) | Handmade Bocce Ball Set ($320)

My mom and I always imagined a trip through Italy. Sightseeing and tasting deliciousness along the way. The thought of playing outside with colorful Bocce balls brought these ideas all back to me. What better way to pretend being there this summer than with some housemade gelato and Italian leather sandals.

Have you been to Italy?

It’s supposed to finally be heating up here in the Pacific NW and I can’t wait! We’ve been going between sunshine and sprinkles for a few weeks now (I guess because we got let off easy rainwise this spring). My mom is visiting from California first the first time since I bought the house, so it’ll be giggles and sightseeing this weekend. In the mean time, I hope ya’ll are enjoying the weather and if not, maybe indulge in some retail therapy with these items that remind me of hot tropical places.

How are you embracing tropical print?

Fredicks & Mae Kite ($64) | Seychelles Emerald Platforms ($84) | Rockland Backpack ($84) | BKR Glass Water Bottle ($24)

It’s been perfect kite flying weather lately. I’ve flown one as a kid, but I’m not sure if I could manage now. But, with this awesome Fredricks & Mae version, I might just be convinced to try again. We’ve been trying to bike around more, so these coordinating accessories would be perfect for a ride to the park and a kite attempt!

Have you ever flown a kite?

It’s finally Friday & I see the sun also finally peeking through my window blinds. We are heading to IKEA after work for a Swedish Midsummer! We stumbled upon it by accident last year & really enjoyed it. One of my fave summer fruits is watermelon. So today’s post is dedicated to this yummy treat that also happens to be quite stylish in sparkly form!
