This shopping trip was inspired by my fav style blogger Sarah at A Beach Cottage. I adore her style, her look! But after trolling the stores for her grey ruffled cardi and striped shirts....c'mon, this is NYC, those things are long gone...I realized that my look is nothing like Sarah's. And what looks so drool-worthy, fab, to die for, on her looks like s*&^$ on me! Not to mention our seasons are reversed, lol.
So, here goes...
for the house:
White wood collector's coffee table from Zenasdad. OMG I love this and all his pieces. They'd be so perfect for my beachcombed treasures!
And I'd love to do a wall filled with these natural history prints from Black Baroque:
Yes!---linen ruffles for me! From Bayou Salvage some linen cargoes (since these are custom, I am hoping the proprietress will be willing to forgo the ruffles on the tummy?). In beach white:
or autumn grey?
Then to go with: Ele Handmade in Italy turquoise ballerina flats.
Embellishments of course.....
Bangles from Miss Fickle Media:
and some of her \verdigris sand dollar charms,
maybe strung on frayed silk ribbon?here
And back to the bayou for a ruffled French Market Bag , again from Bayou Salvage...
Last, but maybe first on my wish list, from Delias Thompson, a set of stacking silver secret message/ poetry rings. I love these, even though I don't wear rings. [I can learn, right?]
So...doesn't look very fall or back to school, does it, my list? Summer reigns supreme here at the beach...and can last forever if only in our minds. (and if the wind picks up and blows the damn flies off to New Jersey!
gone to the beach....
[Obviously the pix aren't mine, hope that is okay....]?
except the beach pix are mine, of course...
