Hey everyone, it’s August 1! We have one more month of summer left until the kiddos (or you) start back to school. But I’m a cup half full kinda gal, so I’m going remind you that summer isn’t actually over until September 22, so that’s nearly a month of summer after the kids go back to school! Plus, we all know September is when summer just gets going in the San Francisco area. So that means 50+ more days full of opportunities to break out the brightly-colored beach accoutrements.
As I mentioned last week, I’m partnering with Serena & Lily, and co-hosted a trunk show at the brand’s San Francisco design shop on Wednesday with a group of lovely SF bloggers where we celebrated exactly those items. They are even prettier in person—I basically wanted everything. They’re available for a limited time only, and some are on sale. So make your way to the beautiful new Serena & Lily space at 3457 Sacramento Street or get shopping online! Click below for some of my favorites from the lifestyle collection.
The Pacific Tote is made of water-resistant fabric that doesn’t feel plasticky, and it’s super roomy. It’s also marked down to $98 from $148! It comes in several colors; I’m partial to the Kelly green.
The Montauk Pareo in untramarine, marked down to $38 from $48. This tasseled, bright wrap is huge, so you can use it as a makeshift beach blanket for sunset-watching.
Ever wish one of those Turkish towels in your kitchen could be a giant beach towel? Well your dreams have come true with the Fouta Beach Towel, $48.
What could be beachier than trowing on a lighter-than-air cotton cover-up and having an oyster and champagne lunch, beachside? The Palm Cover Up in teal comes in its own little pouch making it easy to pack for your next warm-weather getaway—marked down to $48 from $78.
I’m really into purple right now, so these Lattice Pajamas in the softest Lilac cotton are calling my name ($148)
Also, I’m generally really into soft cotton PJs right now! If you’re lucky enough to be headed to a warm locale, the Heart Pajamas in Nantucket Red, $128 come with little shorts and are made of the softest fabric to keep you cool and comfy.
Tide & Pool Montauk Beach Towel is the perfect complement to your Montauk Pareo, plus it’s marked down to $68 from $98.
If you live in the Bay Area, you know you can’t have too many throws with our inevitably chilly evenings. If you live elsewhere, the Pom Pom throw in aqua will help ease the transition from summer to fall ($128)
Step up your tabletop game with these Round Pedestal Trays in teal ($78 to $198). I’m seriously coveting this gorgeous color.
