Indulge in a picture-book (eye candy) in hammock...
OK...Totally minimal effort....grab a book and curl up in a hammock.

With your sweetie-pie, a group of BFF's, or alone.
The trick is...pillows, fresh treats, wine...wine

Forget the castles...think outside the box!

The perfect thing to throw on after a shower,
slip into on a cool late summer night (just add a sweater),
or pair with boots as fall comes knocking at your door.
