Beach Totes and Summer Stripes {& Follow Friday Love}

I can’t tell you how happy I am that the weekend is upon us. I haven’t been this excited for a weekend in a looooooooong time. Last week was an amazing week being home but some really random and mentally exhausting things happened while I was in Atlanta that had me drained coming into this week. Plus it didn’t help that I started my work week off by going to bed at 3am Monday after a 7 hour drive so you know that was only a spiral down from that point on.

Anyway- got some fun “reveals” next week including some pics from my Memorial Day weekend trip to Charleston, a few of my own wedding planning updates and a little guest posting action so be sure drop me a visit!

As I anxiously await my next beach trip to Cabo, I’ve begun looking at fun summer beach tote bags to take with me to my destination wedding. Only problem is I already own like 2-3 extra large totes but nothing with these fun nautical-like summer stripes! :( These just scream tons of beach fun, a romantic sunset cruise, late night summer walks on the beach, and I can hear big crashing waves and see kiddos building sand castles. Okay I’m totally off in lala land now so I’ll let you take a look at a few that I found on Etsy while I continue day dreaming…

And now a little Follow Friday love to wrap things up this week:

A Vintage Handkerchief Save the Date DIY Tutorial from Oh So Beautiful Paper

Loved so many of the sweet rustic wedding details in this purple and grey wedding

Such a pretty coral palette for your Friday…

Not sure I could ever pull these off but I love these turban headbands from Janelle Haskin

I hope you all had a wonderful week and enjoy your weekend coming up! TGIF!

xoxo,

Mel

Okay, now we’re drooling!! There are too many cute beach bags to choose from– how many is too many to own?

Those bags are so cute that even I want one! I guess I will just have to settle for getting one as a gift for a female friend…

(unless they have manly-man versions)
