Inspiration Board {Seersucker Summer}

Nothing says summer quite like seersucker; along with linen, it is a quintessential fabric of the season, worn to help battle the heat and humidity of the warmest days. For a summer wedding, a color palette of blue, white, and yellow paired with seersucker elements is perfectly suited for staying cool in the hot, hot sun.

ahhhh maybe seersucker is what i should be wearing to beat the heat rather than taking endless cold showers! pretty board. day 5 of the heat wave. hopefully it'll cool down a little this weekend. pixel's doing better, thanks for asking. i'm sure the heat didn't help her "bug".

thanks for playing along... look forward to seeing your "heart" photo. happy weekend, courtney. pam

I LOVE this one!!!!! I've always been a sucker for the seer, in fact I've got pants in blue, deep pink, pale blue & black. Add in the oysters & iced tra...heavenly.
Ironically I have been searching for a pair of boys seersucker shorts for Grant for our vacation. You'd think in this economy they'd still be everywhere but nope all sold out.
