This was such a great week spending time with family for the 4th of July and catching up with a friend I haven’t seen in a few years. My friend and I met for lunch and talked for over two and a half hours! It was such a blessing to circle back and we look forward to getting together again this summer! I’m also excited about my new friends at Mark & Graham that gifted me this beautiful handpainted straw beach bag that arrived just in time for my cruise! They also featured my blog in their new Vacation Shop, which was definitely a pinch me moment, since Mark & Graham has always been one of my favorite online shopping destinations.
Now lets talk about my favorite summery striped top (also here) in ivory brilliant sapphire. I’ve been wearing it non-stop (last seen here) and it’s just the easiest top to wear in hot weather. The white shorts are J.Crew, however I also love other pairs of white shorts, including these and these.
This Mark & Graham handpainted straw beach bag is available in six different colors and monogramming is included.
