Those who know me well can atest, I am not the girliest of girls.  Pink rarely makes an appearance anywhere in my world if I can help it.  That being said, this totally caught my eye! 

The shape of the chair, the pop of the green pillow, and the strong contrast of the black in the background make the pink seem fresh rather than prissy.  I’d prefer to hang a few small mismatched mirrors instead of the map of Australia, but I’d still proudly park my seat in this pink gem.  A girl can change…

because we are headed to Belize! Very soon. But alas, my bags won’t be overflowing with Marc Jacobs or Missoni.

I think a last minute trip here, here and here for some more affordable summer pieces are a must – because I’m not sure I even own shorts anymore!

You can check out my {fantasy} shopping list and  learn more about Belize in my Wunderlust guestpost on Luster.
