BLUE NOTE: a lingering last look at Serena & Lily's summer collection

The lazy days of summer might be coming to an end, but they're not over yet.

Time flies when you're having sun. Sandals and floppy hats, a sprinkle of freckles and a messy bun, a cooler filled with soft drinks and hard lemonade, and oh... that intoxicating scent of salt and coconut tanning oil in the air. I mean, does it get any better than this?

Before we know it, Summer 2020 will be behind us. But there's one way to ensure it lingers on, and Serena & Lily - the home brand beloved for its firm grasp on everyday living - knows exactly what it is: a collection that encompasses the barefoot elegance we crave. In my opinion, S&L nailed it this summer with a sand and sea palette, deliberate nautical references, woven raffias and seashell motifs, simple silhouettes, and materials designed for a casual, carefree lifestyle. If you love the color blue (and who doesn't?) this group is for you. And with these pieces, you can find your endless summer... even after the bathing suits are put away and the sweaters and boots are put on.

Isora 20" sq. Pillow Cover in Coastal Blue, $168

Oakdale Full/Queen Coverlet, $298

Sconset 8' x 10' Rug, $998
