In the Mood for Summer

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Now for a little summer inspiration. One place to start is at Target with their limited collaboration with Finnish design company Marimekko known for their unique prints.  We love the beach totes, beach towels, napkins and so much more and you will too. (Plus the prices are great.) Every tomato wardrobe needs a pair of white linen comfy slacks and a crinkled cotton shirt (at prizes you’ll love). And check out what’s on our lust list (and for those of you who don’t need to ask the price), a beautiful Ralph Lauren spring handbag.

And best of all? Most pieces can be yours for under $50. Here are a few of our favorites.
