Moxie Monday: Chilled Cucumber Soup from Jillibean Soup

OK, friends. Get ready. 'Cause I'm about to gush all over the ever livin' place. For today's Moxie Monday is not only one of my top 5 favorite collections of the CHA Winter show, but it's also my absolute favie collection that my dear friends at Jillibean Soup have ever put out. And that's saying a whole lot, because I've loved pretty much every collection they've ever produced.

There's just something about the Chilled Cucumber Soup collection that speaks to me. It may just be the perfectly balanced shades of yellow, blue, and green that have me yearning for spring. Or it could be the trendy chevrons that complement such iconic natural elements such as butterflies and clouds. Or perhaps it is the dainty florals that offset the hip arrows and speech bubbles. I'm even thinking that it could be the supah fun Polaroids and windows that have got my heart a-flutter. Or maybe it's the way the mixxy matchy patterns work with one another to create a delightful array of loveliness. But then again, it could also be the introduction of that delicious shade of gray that works behind the scenes to send this line so high up in the terrace of my esteem.

Whatever the case, here it is for you to ponder. Check it:














Is your heart all a-flutter like mine is? If so, leave me a comment by midnight EST on Sunday, February 24 and I'll draw two random luckies to win it! And don't forget! You've got to check back here first thing on the morning of Tuesday, March 2 for our weekly Winnerday! post to see if you are one of our lucky winners!

The most delicious cucumber soup I've ever tasted,

~Cath
