2013 Spring EssentialsWednesday, April 03, 2013
Now that we've happily ushered in the spring, we're warming up to the lazy summer days ahead. That means casual, colorful apparel for you; pretty, plush towels for pool parties; and salad servers, candleholders, and accents to set an easy, elegant atmosphere for alfresco dining. Here are my 2013 spring essentials for you and for your home.
Leather Flat Sandals are just about the only sandals I will buy. They last forever, are super comfortable and stretch with the natural curve of your feet.
Linen Scarves are the perfect spring accessory, especially since this spring has been noticeably cool and windy.
Treat yourself to one of Essie's new nail polish colors for 2013. Pink nails are a dime a dozen. I suggest New Essie Spring 2013 Collection Madison Ave-Hue 824 Maximilianstrasse Her.
Whether heading to a French market or to a sandy beach, this palm leaf bag with gold leather handles is the ideal companion. This French Market Basket will hold everything from picnics to beach towels for all summer outings.
A whimsically chic goggle-eyed jellyfish motif defines artist Matthew Langille's Beach Towel; the flip side features an identical design with the colors reversed. The towel is meticulously custom jacquard-woven, which means the design is created in yarn on the loom rather than screen-printed on the towel surface. As such, it will not fade over time. And best of all, Made in the USA.
What is time spent outdoors without a new good read? I have heard nothing but ranting and raving about I Remember Nothing: And Other Reflections (Vintage). This book is on my MUST READ list!
Fresh salad is a spring time meal staple so dish it out in style with these Gold Bamboo Salad Servers! They are made for everyday use, but truly exciting when pulled into action on special occasions.
The weather has finally warmed up, what better way to embrace it then with a party? Have a backyard BBQ, afternoon boating with friends or plan a beach trip. Tiny Prints has affordable and adorable Party Invitations for spring and summer.
This decoratively weathered Metal Rope Candleholder brings a soft glimmer to a setting even when not holding a lit candle.
