It never fails, when summer comes around, this Bird cannot help herself but get obsessed with orange and vanilla creamsicle-dreamsicle heaven! So, even though I've done versions of this before, please indulge my sweet tooth and let me have this citron et vanille Mood.

The afternoons draw out into long dusky evenings. The air stays warm as the stars begin to come out and you have just enough time to sneak in a sweet dessert to see the night sky unfold. At least, that's what the sweet memory of youth whispers to me around this time of year. With our busy days full of too many to-do's and not enough wanna-do's, it's not a bad thing to relive some of those carefree moments when we can. These were some grown-up items that brought up those sweet reminders of youth: {1} Creamsicle painting by The FFK, {2} Perfect rib knit tank in warm stripe from Old Navy, {3} Creamsicle medium zippered makeup bag by Ghill Design, {4} The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain clothbound Penguin Classics from Anthropologie, {5} Silk shantung and chiffon dress by Giambattista Valli from Luisa Via Roma, {6} Cece leather and canvas ballet flat in sandstone by J. Crew, {7} Glare printed chiffon tank by Helmut Lang from Nordstrom, {8} Coral swinging feather earrings in peach by Miss Selfridge, {9} Summer Lovin mini dress by Blu Moon from Piperlime, {10} Safari bangle by Kate Spade from Neiman Marcus, {11} Poppy Luxe white dot stationery from Paper Source, {12} Orange Cream soy candle by Pur Bliss

  1. Delicious! I'm remembering those little ice cream cups with vanilla on one side, orange on the other. I remember very carefully (with the splintering wooden "spoon") carving out the vanilla and saving the orange for last.


Merci buttercups! Your comments are appreciated! (hit the 'post comment' button twice, sometimes it's buggy)
