Friday Finds

For those of you gearing up for some shopping this weekend, here are some of my recent favorite finds. Chosen for their style and function, I didn't realize these items also happen to be in similar color families until I was putting the collage together.

My usual go-to summer hues are vibrant pinks, citrus yellows, and delicious reds. But lately I've been loving the cool and relaxed shades of blues and greens Somewhere inside, I must be really yearning for the water :)

1. Hand dyed shibori linen pillow, $57.94, Etsy
I am a huge fan of shibori, a Japanese fabric dyeing technique (which most of us are familiar with as tie-dye). In classic indigo, the blue is so calming and reminds me of a deep well of pure, cool water. With the right pattern, like the one used for this pillow, a traditional style readily adapts to a modern home.

2. Tiki stacking glasses, $5.95 each, CB2
The moment I saw these drinking glasses in the CB2 catalog, I was smiling. How fun! Stacked together, they remind me of a totem pole, alone they're simply adorable. Perfect for any summer gathering, who wouldn't smile when they're drinking from these?

3. T-strap wedge sandals, $79, Nine West (currently on sale for $49.99, available in other colors)

I just got a pair of these sandals in the natural color and I love them. A 1.5in stacked wedge heel gives enough lift to lengthen your legs and dress up any outfit, yet are still comfortable enough that I could literally walk around all day in them. I will be pairing these with dresses, pants, shorts... you name it!

4. King cube silicone ice trays, $7.99 and up, (available in more than a dozen colors)

It's official: king size 2" ice cubes are a must-have for every kitchen. Tired of regular ice cubes diluting your drink? Problem solved, these will keep your soda or whiskey chilled and at full strength. Sick of drinking weak iced coffee? Problem solved, make coffee ice cubes with these and you will be icing your coffee with more coffee. Making a pitcher of iced tea? A bowl of punch for a party? Throw a couple of these in and you're set.

5. Woven tribal print clutch, $9.80, Forever 21
At less than $10, this is an easy pick for a summer accessory. The tribal print keeps it fun and the indigo and white keep it clean and understated, making it work for both day and night.

What's your favorite find so far this summer?
