Little Luxuries {All Under $30}


This past weekend temps hit the 80s here in New York. The feeling of warm air blowing around your bare legs (because I donned shorts for the first time in ages, naturally) was like remembering something wonderful that you had long forgotten — or maybe thought would never happen again (it was a very cold winter, after all). We even turned on our window AC units! The humidity, the breezes, and the sun put me in the mood for warm, beachy tones, so I’m not surprised that inspiration gathering online led to the round up of items in this post. Of particular note is the Christian Chaize book (Remember his prints from 20×200? The photographs were all taken in the same spot over the course of eight years!) as well as these beautiful ceramic bowls from West Elm (they’re only $5 a pop!). And speaking of shorts, J.Crew Factory is offering an extra 30% off all of theirs — and everything else —  right now with the code SALE30, so these coral ones (which are normally $40) clock in at under $28 until the sale ends Wednesday night!

Forget roses — for me, this week everything’s coming up peachy. Wishing you a warm, beautiful week ahead!

    gorgeous picks! i am so sad to hear about your palm print beach bag…it sounds amazing and i know how hard it is to loose a treasured item. the gold asos version is pretty nice as well though :)

    Those little bowls are such a great find! Definitely could never be called clutter :) They’d also be perfect for an entryway table or collection of matches!

    The bowls from west elm are gorgeous! Coral isn’t normally the first color I reach for (I’m wearing the only coral shirt I own today) but I love the shorts too!
