Though the weather doesn’t seem to be topping the low 50s lately, I’ve got summer on the brain. Primarily because I’m hopping on a plane to Minneapolis today, and I’m refusing to admit that snow is in the forecast. I’ve put away my heavy coats and boots for the season, and I can’t bear to break them out again. So I’ve been flooding my brain with imagery that reminds me of summer. Specifically, anything that reminds me of a picnic tablecloth and meals eaten on (or near) the beach.

I would wear a every day if it was socially acceptable, but these gingham trays by Martin Wiscomb might be a better option. And of course, it doesn’t get any more nautical and summery than navy/white fish patterns.
