Loving lately...

Now that we're officially in August I can start getting excited about the arrival of Spring next month. Hints of Spring are already in the air with the days getting longer; plus we're now starting to see the new seasons collections hitting stores, which is a good sign. It has been such a cold winter here, so I'm definitely ready for the warmer weather to arrive!

Today I wanted to share a few lovely things that have caught my eye lately...  

+ I loved this fun shoot with Olivia Palermo for Russian Tatler.

+ I've been seeing polka dots everywhere lately and I'm loving it! 
Are polka dots the next big thing? I hope so! 

+ This has to be the most amazing + delicious-looking cherry cake I've ever seen!

+ I love these pretty illustrations by 23 Maison Studio.

+ This English High Tea, inspired by the Olympics is so fun!

Hope you're having a lovely Thursday!

  1. Gorgeous photos and links as usual! You're right, it's been SUCH a cold winter, hasn't it?! And I think polka dots are definitely the next big thing, if not already :)

    Life etc

  2. Absolutely lovee all of these. That image of OP immediately made me stop dead in my tracks when I first saw it-- stunning. And I sort of love that our seasons are reversed.. everyone around here has started to blog about fall, but I'm not ready for that, so it's nice that you're channeling spring!

  3. It feels so weird to hear someone mention spring when it's summer on this side of the planet.
    I loved that photo of OP from the moment I saw it, the colours in it are just lovely. Polka dots, what can I say? I love them ;-)

  4. I'm a sucker for polka dots as much as for stripes, so I'm LOOOVING seeing polka dots everywhere ;)
    And even though I don;t like cherries, that cake looks amazing!

  5. I love everything you have selected Rachel... Olivia looks quite stunning in the first shot - must be the colour combo. And that cake OMG! I'm trying to lay off the sugar but this is scrumptious - ditto for the hightea! Those illustrations are so cute... loving these. Thanks for sharing and enjoy your day - nearly the weekend :)x

  6. I have been seeing that JCrew polka dot jumper everywhere! It's on my Pinterest 'wish list' board. Happy August Rach xx

  7. Gosh Olivia always looks amazing doesn't she?! Always love your Friday post Rachel :) have a fab weekend!
