Today marks the first official day of summer, and it is officially HOT. An easygoing oceanside inspiration board seemed like just the thing. This faded blue and white palette has a preppy vibe to it, and though I love its simplicity, a pop of orange or pink could punch it up for those with a preference for more color. Summery details include blueberries, seersucker, espadrilles and hydrangea. Oars, sailboats and cracked crab play up the coastal setting.
