Our family has taken a much-needed break and spent the week at the beach. I think we’re rested up and ready to jump into the craziness that surrounds an overseas move in the midst of Covid, but the next few weeks will prove whether or not that’s true!
This week I’m sharing our Friday favorites with a nod to all things blue and white because those colors say “summer” and “beach” to me more than any others.
I ordered eight of these blue glasses and they’ll be waiting for me when I get home. I rotate blue willow dishes with plain white ones and figure these will go with both while putting a little pop of color on the table.
These blue and white napkins are the perfect floral accent on a summer table; best of all, they’re on sale.
The iconic Adidas Superstar sneaker pairs perfectly with jeans or shorts. A (much younger) guy stopped me in the grocery store a few weeks ago to compliment me on my good taste in retro footwear. My daughter and I are the same size and share a pair. They’re on sale right now, too.
These blue and white lamp finials are also on sale and come in several patterns. Lamp finials are like jewelry for your lighting fixtures and I love to collect unique ones. These would be a perfect accent to your traditional or chinoiserie style decor.
Amy and I have both shared this swimsuit before; we both own it in different colors. It’s incredibly flattering and inexpensive (see it on a real person–me–in this post).
Shorts (40% off)
Last but not least, this book isn’t blue, but it was a very engaging beach read this week. I know I’m behind the curve since it’s already been made into a movie (which I haven’t seen), but I couldn’t put it down.
Today it’s back to the grind, but I’m thankful for salt, sun, and water. The beach was quiet and it was easy to keep to ourselves. I was so glad that we could get away and recharge our batteries while supporting our local coastal economy at the same time. I can’t imagine being a businessperson or property owner in a beach town this summer–if we’re not careful, that might be where we see the next round of jobless claims and bankruptcies.
Enjoy your Friday, and thanks for stopping by.
