Hold on to Summer

October in Chicago is funny. The temperature is in the high seventies this week but we could just as easily be thirty degrees colder, so we’re spending some time outside and enjoying the warm weather while we can. Wouldn’t one of these rattan chairs be cute on a porch or patio (like Jaime’s below), or in a sunroom?

Such a sweet chair.

    Ever since I shot her patio I’ve been wanting to make ours as cozy. I sat in that chair – so comfy : )

      It was from Anthropologie, but it’s long gone now. (I love it too.)
