Coastal Grandmother Style

The style aesthetic embraces lifestyle choices. Leisurely slow walks in a sun-blocking new hat, fresh-cut flowers on the kitchen countertop, dinner crisping in the oven, and heading to bed early; it’s a lifestyle more than a trend. The style is all about: 

  • pursuing joy in the tiny little things in life,
  • having an incredible taste. 

Coastal Grandmothers are individuals who are: 

  • effortlessly stylish (but in a comfy manner), 
  • have a collected presence (without attempting too hard),
  • understand how to be the most pleasing hostess (while never working very hard), 
  • enjoy the finer items (yet still sense approachable).

It’s also crucial to note that you don’t need to have grandchildren or live on the beach to be a coastal grandmother. It applies to all ages and locales. The prevailing aesthetic is: 

  • relaxed yet still prepared, 
  • not too ridge in thinking, 
  • but still clutching classic wardrobe fashion. 

If a color collection would be: 

  • neutrals with white, tan, black, 
  • shades of blue and green.

It’s time to: 

  • gather those hydrangeas from the small garden, 
  • fix your hair messily into a tortoiseshell clip, 
  • stockpile tomatoes from the local farmers’ market.

As with any technique, you find inspiration, then try it yourself; you carve out your version from these options, and you can discover incredible happiness.
