I am back from several days without the internet.  It was so lovely to commune with nature up where the giant sequoias live!  I have to sift through all my photos to see if anything quite captures the magic of the forests.

Back closer to sea level, summer is in full swing.  I'm back to one of my summer staples -- the Asian print dress.  And of course, accessories in turquoise.

Hiding in the shade
Dress: Patrick Robinson for Target
Straw hat: Target
Gladiators: Michael Kors "flatforms"
Aviators: Topshop
Accessories: turquoise earrings and beaded cuffs

It's getting so hot over here, I've taken to hiding in the shade!  What is it like where you are?

I hope to re-visit everyone's blogs throughout this week.  Thanks for all your wonderful comments while I was away.
