The Tunic

I have a love affair with India. I will travel there one day - but until then, I will be content with sporting tunics and hitting up some yoga classes. How amazing would it be to go on a buying trip there! My parents traveled there in the 70's and did just that - they even peddled some of their goods to Bloomingdales.
Sorry, back to the matter at hand - the tunic. Tunics are popping up everywhere - for good reason. Throw on a colorful tunic with a pair of white jeans or shorts and you are instantly pulled together (and comfortable)...think Tory Burch. I would even go as far to say as they are a summer essential - or if you live in Florida - an everyday essential.
Here are some of the gorgeous tunics we have in the store...

This invite makes me want to have a party!

I have a small obsession with this Lilly Pulitzer Sea Urchin invite. I have always loved sea urchins - growing up going to the Bahamas and finding them in the shallow waters there. Since I have no excuse to have a poolside cocktail party - maybe I'll order them as a folded note...

The Back Porch enters the blog-o-sphere!

It feels like summer here in South Florida - after a very cold winter! Our northern seasonal friends are already starting to pack up.

I am loving our new collection of melamine plates! So great for outdoor BBQ's and make fabulous wedding/engagement gifts. This clover pattern is popping up everywhere these days! Love the navy/pink color combo...
