A few random photos from Instagram this week (my username is “elegantmusings”).

I just wanted to say a big thank you for all the sweet comments about my new ‘do! Oddly enough, I’ve been wearing my hair down almost daily since I cut the bangs; I think for so long I pulled it up or back because my front section annoyingly got in my face. Now that’s not a problem, I’m rediscovering styles that don’t involve a whole lot of fuss! Although the other day I did a high bun and the look was quite fetchingly-quirky with the bangs.

Now for the winner of the third day of the vintage pattern giveaway:


Congratulations and I’ll be sending you an email shortly! Thank you to everyone who entered this series of giveaways; I’m hoping to hold a few more throughout the summer, so stay tuned!

I’m off to enjoy the remainder of a nice, long weekend with my sweetheart. As is typical for us on a holiday weekend like this, there is lots of time spent lounging around, grilling yummy things and eating fresh blackberries I picked up at Trader Joe’s on Friday (a summer treat!). But in the middle of all this holiday cooking and relaxing, I hope that fellow American readers will remember to take a moment to remember the reason we get a 3 day weekend the end of each May: in memorial to the nation’s fallen service members. Have a lovely rest of your weekend, friends!

Terrific roundup of images, I really like how they capture the spirit of this in between season we’re dwelling in now. Not quite the sizzling power of summer, but not entirely finished with spring’s delicate beauty either.

Wishing you a serenely wonderful Sunday,
♥ Jessica
