Summer living | Vive l'été

Remember my SUMMER LIVING | VIVE L'ÉTÉ series that I started last summer? I have been waiting to pick up where I left off because I loved pulling together images from various directions to create what to me feels like the perfect summer mood. With my Wi-Fi horrible (the italics mean you have to read this phrase in French) I'm not going to tell you how much patience I needed to create this particular post, where I'm giving the sailing sport and menswear a well deserved space on the blog. There is no need to add any words to these images, I think they tell their own story, and that's the way I would like to keep the series this summer.
Whatever you do this summer, make it one to remember!

  1. Lately you have become my virtual travel escape - even though I keep traveling back and forth, your dreamy posts make me wish to become 'an idle traveler' (like the title of a book I own)!

    1. A virtual travel escape, you say. I think that may be the best praise ever!
      I think I may need to check out that book ;-)

  2. I want to pack my bags and leave on a boat trip! I've just been to the movies (I offered myself a two-hour break in the middle of the day) to see The Two Faces of January, starring Kirsten Dunst and Viggo Mortensen (I wanted to see it as it's an adaptation after another novel by Patricia Highsmith and because I wanted to have a look at the costumes - beautiful) and the plot is mainly placed in Greece and its islands, so I was already in a "take me away" mood.

    1. Cinema escaping … what a great way to break up the day. I recently saw an interview with Dunst and a little clip from the film. Hope you enjoyed it!

  3. Dear Lisa,

    First of all, wish you a smooth unpacking; glad to hear you've found a place that could be your more or less permanent home!
    Secondly, if preparing this post required loads of patience, rest assured that the result is much appreciated – so wonderful to have such a fresh summery break in the middle of a rainy day in the office!
    Finally, I wouldn't mind wearing those two Hermès outfits myself, provided they were my (women's) size. :-)

  4. Hi Lisa - even if I didn't know it was your blog I would know it was yours by that sailing photo - I love the mood you capture here! It makes me want to get splashed by the cold ocean while wearing beautiful clothes on a yacht! Lol. Hoping your internet is less horrible soon ;)

    Hugs,
    Mary Jo

    1. I wouldn't mind getting splashed either! I cannot wait to go to the seaside this summer … and hopefully sailing in our boat on some lake/canal.
