Lake House Summer Tour

There are so many good sales this upcoming holiday weekend! The weather is supposed to be pretty rainy, so if I have to be stuck inside I might as well do a little online shopping. You all know how I want to just move myself right into a Serena and Lily store so I was happy to partner with them to share a few of my fave items from the sale. I snagged a few things to freshen up our home for summer. Lake House Summer tour

I’ve been looking for a piece of furniture to ground my new art in our dining area. I had to laugh because I shared I was on the hunt for a table for this space on Instagram and I had over 10 of you message me saying I needed this  South Seas Side Cart in my life.

Great minds think alike because it was already sitting in my online shopping cart ha! Please tell me I’m not the only one with full shopping carts hanging out all over the internet? :)

The cart arrived yesterday, and it’s perfection. I just threw a few things on it and snapped a quick photo, but I will probably have some more fun styling it this weekend. I was missing the texture of the basket that used to be on this wall, so this was the perfect solution to add that texture back.

I also got a few new throw pillow covers even though I still love my old ones. I received our other Serena & Lily pillows in the fall, and they all still look brand new despite Charlie constantly burrowing into them. That’s one thing I really appreciate about Serena and Lily – everything is such great quality. I so wish I could catch a sunny day in this room, the blue chairs are so pretty with the water in the background but it has been gloomy for days here.

I’ve swapped out some of the darker cozier knit ones for some lighter summery ones.

I especially love the green details on these pillows.

I love how these pillows have lightened up the space and everything feels fresh for summer. Now if the sun would just show up!

I also got these gorgeous beach towels – I love the colors and they are so soft and thick. They are almost too pretty to use, but they are so cozy I can’t resist.

I’m sharing all of my fave Serena & Lily items from our house below along with some of their things that are on my wishlist too! Some of their items can be a splurge, so when they have a sale it’s a great time to pull the trigger on something you have been wishing for. The Memorial Day Sale runs today through May 28.
