Summer vibes are definitely in the air. Can you feel them? I’m dreaming of umbrella drinks in the sun with a cool body of water nearby. This said dream will have to happen in a backyard though because this summer bod is nowhere close to being ready! It’s truly blinding. This week I gathered up some beach house inspo for you and share the essentials to making your space a stay-cation worthy hot spot for sharing cocktails and laughs. I’m even sharing my fave margarita recipe. Cheers to summer!
