I guess I had a naive heart, cause boy, I let you have it

I could spend all day over at It All Starts with a Smile exploring the autumnal setup Kaelyn Alecto has going on. As an entire sim full of picturesque spaces, you’ll find yourself like I did, staying long after the camera has been put away just to check out the views. I highly recommend a visit.

Under the Sun of Summerfest

summerfest

While some things in life might slow down in the summer, creators in SL do not. This is no more evident than at Summerfest ’14, an annual beach themed shopping event on its second year. Last year’s outing ended up being among my favorites of 2013, and this year is no different. I spent too much! You’ve already seen this short tank top all over from Tee*fy because it’s glorious, and just like Maitreya’s shorts from last post, these cut offs from Tres Blah fit so great around my legs. Add in these sandals from Ingenue & wavy hair from Exile, and you’ve only tipped the iceberg that is this year’s Summerfest.

PS. if you’re looking for a gorgeous summer sim, head over to Izzie’s Mainstore. I love how she changes it up on the regular, always looking fantastic!

Pose Fair 2013 is nearly at an end (Sunday!) and I can’t let it slip by without showing off a few of my favorite finds (one top of the poses that’ll show up in future posts). I hadn’t heard of Apple Spice prior, so this one is a true discovery. I like the unique positioning in this sampling, and it shapes the avatar nicely. Granted mesh covers up joint issues much better than before, but still!

Since the weather system was re-installed in CD, we’ve had a bit of rain, partly from a sim-wide plot that’s beginning. While there’s nooo way my hair in life of the Real would ever stay this good in that much humidity (or in normal weather, for that matter), I can’t help but take a less than realistic approach when Truth comes out with hair like this. Mixed in is a pair of longtime favorite boots, shorts from the 100L Warehouse sale, & Teefy’s cute cardigan from the last Dressing Room.
