“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.” 
― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

A few days ago I was gently awoken by the chirping of birds. And as the sun began to rise around 5:20 in the morning, I was reminded why I love the long days. As someone who adores her mornings, being able to wake with daylight subtly whispering that the day is beginning is a priceless luxury that I do my best to revel in each season as it seems to vanish all too soon.

Something that also seems to have vanished that readers have said they would like to have returned is more fashion and style posts. As I mentioned in February, the reason for the changes in the regularly weekly posts was my schedule as I am determined to improve my French language skills and focus on finding time to curate the content for the second book. And the good news is that French courses have wrapped up, and more time is at my disposal. And while Style Inspiration won’t be returning weekly, I will be bringing back sporadic fashion posts seen on the street as well as home tours from time to time that I think you will enjoy having a look at.

The summer season for TSLL is a time for total dedication to all things simply luxurious, as I am already diving into two big projects, one of which will debut in the fall. I look forward to continuing to bring you inspiration on how to live the life you love and improve on what you already have worked so hard to cultivate whether it involves the meals you make in your kitchen, the outfits you pull together, how to entertain on a budget and overall provide tips and tools to reach your full potential as the amazing individual that you are.

With all of that said, it is a beautiful sunny Sunday, and so some delightfully fun and summer style to enjoy is below. To learn more about each of the outfits, simply click on the image to be taken to the original destination to shop or learn more about the the styles. Enjoy!

  1. That second photo, with the black skirt and striped top, is SO French. The bared shoulders are revealing, but just a little. The sleeves are long, so is the skirt–never show too much. The whole ensemble is very simple, unadorned. Classic. Not fussy. Perfect.

  2. Shannon I do love your style and fashion posts the best. I’m grateful you have more time to devote to them, as I have missed them. Love the Je Parle Anglais black t-shirt and blazer. How do they do it?? Oh yeah, that’s what you’re enlightening us about! Merci.
