Summer is here and we’re all about the beach! The endlessly shimmering horizon of blue sea meeting blue sky. The vibrant, shifting heat of the sand under your feet. The clink of ice hitting a glass and the cheerful smell of sunscreen have a way of bringing a special joy to this season.
Unfortunately, we can’t all venture to the nearest seaside stretch to let the saltwater wash away the winter – but, these timeless treasures can add a touch of the bright, summery beach to the land-locked.
Dive in for some of our favorite sparkling summer styles!
