Memorial Day Inspired | summery clothes and table ideas


I'm still trying to wrap my mind around the fact that another school year is about to come to an end.  Andrew is starting to make preliminary college visit lists (he'll be a junior next year!) and I'm tinkering with my summer project list (which usually is far too lofty and really more on an exercise of nice ideas rather than things I will actually accomplish).   With Memorial Day weekend and the sudden arrival of warm temperatures, I'm starting to think about things l'd like to take with me for our upcoming trip to Nantucket and what new little summery finds I need for outdoor entertaining.  I've rounded up some favorites that have been popping up in my online shopping carts.  



one shoulder navy dress || swimsuit with rickrack trim || straw hat || light blue gingham peplum blouse || cork candles || red jumpsuit || navy embroidered blouse || red check maxi (the back of this one is amazing!  It would be so pretty in family beach pictures too!) || crab clutch || espadrilles. (my favorite white high rise AG jeans, more cute blouses to wear with those white jeans and a light blue buffalo check apron dress are linked below.  I have the J. Crew Factory apron dress and found it runs true to size even though the reviews say to size down.)





Love these glasses and any rattan or wicker tableware and accessories (more linked below!).  Would be so cute used as small vases lined up down the center of a table.

Rattan placements (these are on sale this weekend)

blockprint napkins (I bought these already)

I use my bamboo flatware year round, but I do love it most of all in the summer





Happy Memorial Day to all of you!  Hope your weekend plans include something fun! Cookout, parade and baseball for us (so long as the rain stays away)!
