In The Bag
Doesn’t the easy breezy style of this woven seagrass tote make you want to throw in the towel (literally) and hit the beach? It’s also roomy enough to add sunscreen and a light read that will take you away from the stresses of everyday life. Retail: $135. The Biltmore Gift Shop, 1200 Anastasia Ave., 305-445-8066.
Known for offering suitcase-friendly dress shirts (read: they’re stretchy, wrinkle resistant, and machine washable), Dallas-based Mizzen + Main is the men’s shop that we didn’t even realize we needed until now. Fortunately, they just opened a brick and mortar location at the Shops at Merrick Park. We’re partial to the Bryant in light blue knit, especially for a more casual day at the office. Retail: $135. Mizzen + Main, 358 San Lorenzo Ave. #1100., 786-665-8106.
Conjuring a vibrant blue-green that echoes the color of ocean waves, this recycled glass lamp would be a fantastic addition to a side table or entryway. Designed by Regina Andrew and available at Nordstrom, it makes an even brighter impression when it’s lit. Retail: $447. Nordstrom, 4310 Ponce de Leon Blvd., 786-999-1313.
Aptly named “The Color Teil,” this stunning coffee table book chronicles both popular and lesser-known work from fine art painter Teil Duncan. With a focus on beaches and pool scenes in candy colored hues, it’s sure to be a tome that you’ll want to peruse regularly and share with your guests. Retail: $68. Barnes & Noble, 152 Miracle Mile, 305-446-4152.
