Beach Dreams

Lately the weather, as the Brits say, has been chicken one day, next day, feathers. So I can’t be the only one dreaming of beaches this cool Wednesday. Herewith, accoutrements for a sunny daydream …
First, one needs a beach house. My husband and I once happily rented from, a purveyor of historic beach houses on sleepy Tybee Island, just 10 minutes from Savannah. This is the Dutton-Waller cottage, circa 1938; it won the Tybee Island Historic Society Preservation Award in 2006.
This J.Crew swimsuit has a tulle overlay. TULLE. 
Gotta have this "Wish You Were Here" bangle from Kate Spade for a beach-bound foray ... 
..and these Amanda Pearl "Gobstopper" earrings. Yum. Featured at 
I could tolerate these for about five minutes, but they do complete the look, no? Jimmy Choo "Pheonix" espadrilles in antique rose patent leather.
And how's a girl to get around without this Nirve "Wispy" 3-speed cruiser?
That was fun. Now to snap out of my reverie and get back to my real life ... baking a yellow cake with peanut butter frosting for my book club today at 1 p.m. 


  1. I know that this post is more than two years old but I'm wondering, did you ever purchase that Kate Spade bangle?
