strawberry milkshake.

Rounding out this tasty series of guest posts, I have my sweet blog friend, Grace, from Stripes + Sequins! I only wish I lived in NYC so I could frequent her DIY craft nights ;) I'm thrilled to have her here sharing her most-loved summer sweet. I can't wait to see your own versions tomorrow for Friday's Fancies. Thanks again, Grace! xoxo {av}
Hello, hello, LDL readers!  My name is Grace, and I write the blog Stripes + Sequins.  S+S is a fashion + DIY blog for the sparkle obsessed.  I hope you’ll come by and visit.

My favorite summer treat isn’t necessarily the healthiest of treats, which is why I don’t necessarily let myself have it all that often.  But so what… the strawberry milkshake is one of my favorite ways to indulge.  And, it’s pink… what’s not to love!?  Inspired by this frosty treat, I put together some of my favorite pastel pink pieces.  Some of them, like the treat, are a little indulgent… but that’s why you only splurge every so often.

Clockwise from Top Left:  Jeans // Cardigan //  Earrings // Mary Jane T-Straps // Oh la la // Tote // Strawberry Earrings // Ring // O.P.I. Pink Friday (the perfect opaque pastel pink) // Dress // Jeans

P.S.  Make a healthy version with 1 cup fresh strawberries, 1 cup (organic) skim milk, 4 ice cubes, and ½ cup vanilla frozen yogurt.
