Beachy Gift Guide

Beachy Gift Guide

Hey Modern Farmhouse Girl!

Happy Memorial Day and Three-Day-Weekend!

Thanks to my gal-pal (and only nurse friend because I can only take so many gory stories over breakfast) Julia, I'm taking a weekend away from home decor and DIY projects...in Wells Beach, Maine!

Julia's aunt is generously letting us stay at her home and we arrived here last night. It's actually a trailer house and I'M IN LOVE—it's completely decorated in a beachy theme, as all beach houses should be. The sliding front door showcases a frosted glass lighthouse, I had my a.m. coffee in a mermaid mug, and I want this sign (for my future beach house) in the kitchen that reads: "When We Count Our Blessings We Count Our Days At The Beach." 

We spent our first morning here exploring Kennebunkport and the whole afternoon tanning at the beautiful Parsons Beach. Tomorrow we're off to Portland and then it'll be back to the beach again! 

Since I've got the beach on my brain, here's a fun beach-inspired gift guide (read too: my wish/shopping list) to start off your summer.

Vintage 22 Tote

Yes, it's $180, but it's vintage and it's sporty and I love it. Plus it's handmade from recycled sails in Portland, ME. Sea Bags

Perfect Beach Pants

The pair of Madewell jeans my Uncle Fred bought me a few years ago are still my favorite pants. WANT these Huston Pull-On Crop Pants in Evelyn Stripe.

Love Mich Cozie

My friend Julia is a huge fan of these cozies (apparently new patterns come out once a month and sell out in 5 minutes) and she treated me to this adorable anchor cozie on our trip!

ADK Chairs

Home Depot sells these folding Adirondack chairs that are perfect for packing up and bringing to the beach. I bought one in white for my back porch and I love it! (It was fairly easy to put together too, though I did have to take out the drill and widen some of the pre-made screw holes during assembly.)

"Salty" Ball Cap

You definitely need a floppy sun hat for the beach, but you need a ball cap for the rest of vacation—& this one is too cute from Aerie
