Things I Love Thursday: Vacation and Turquoise

Even though we just had the first day of Spring, I am already over it and ready for SUMMER!  Luckily, Summer comes early for us in the form of a Turks & Caicos vacation.  We leave Saturday, have a day in NYC and then spend the next week in Providenciales...

Turks & Caicos last summer

I've mentioned my love of turquoise numerous times.  My favorite shade just happens to be Carribean Sea Blue (an offical color in my mind!) and I am glad that I get to stare at it for 168 hours.  As much as I'd love to have all of you join us, that just isn't possible, so I've decided to do a week of turquoise posts with a couple of summer wardrobe guests posts sprinkled in as well.

Since I'm in the mood, I thought I'd dive right in:  turquoise is great as a color all on its own.  However, if you already have a home that is decorated & not in need of a makeover (if you do, click here and let me know!), I want to show you how easy it is to add turquoise in as an accent color.  Whether it's complimenting or contrasting, it goes well with every single color.  Don't believe me?  Take a look for yourself!

And my personal favorite - the Jonathan Adler designed room featuring turquoise (swoon), navy (SWOON) and yellow (FUN!).

Are you all ready for a week of Summer lovin'?  I know I am!  I am not, however, looking forward to dropping Derby off at the kennel :(  We are doing a 2 week board and train, which I KNOW will be SO GOOD for her, but I can't help but think about how much I will miss that fur face!
