Outdoor dining and grown-up plastic.

On Friday we continued our blog swapping series with the ladies over at A Good HostessThe blog is run by two sisters who share their ideas for a stylish home and living the good life in minimal square-footage. They teach you that classy and sassy are not mutually exclusive, and that a good hostess always knows when to use the f-word.

Lena gifted me a set of plastic wine glasses from Crate & Barrel a few years ago and I was so obsessed that I went and stocked up on more the next year.

Seriously, you could use this stuff every day. No one would know.
