as summer winds to a close i find myself clinging to just a few things that remind me of hot summer days: iced tea, beach towels, flip flops and my favorite color for summer: yellow. so in honor of the last few steamy weeks of summer, i thought i’d round up a collection of my favorite summer yellow products: all under $100. happy end-of-summer!

    Love, love, love this post!!! Yellows is my favourite colour and I have the most amazing yellow bedspread that I bought at Winners. My next decorating goal is to make my bedroom even more chic by painting the walls gray. Yellow and gray are so beautiful.

    I love how lemon yellow means summer never has to end!
    I just saw this yellow chevron (swoon!) beach towel/picnic blanket on etsy this morning http://www.etsy.com/listing/54002391/yellow-chevron-linen-beach-towel

    I bought the sailor tote a couple weeks ago, I love it! It’s from a seller in Turkey, though, so allow plenty of time for it to arrive! It has lots of pockets on the inside, and the rope straps are really soft and comfy, not like actual rope. Cheers!

    Craspedia!! I ‘m go glad that I now know the name of these flowers! I always see them in design blogs/magazines, and I have searched for them, but didn’t know what to call them. Thanks for sharing!

  18. unique FONT says:

    wow! superb collection!
    very beautiful :) thanks for sharing

    Im not sure if it still works but this site usually has a 50% off coupon. They have a lot of cool paintings that would match this yellow theme. The coupon code was Extra50. Check it out. http://www.mywhitewalls.com

  20. I have to agree with Mia on this one. There is just something about that lemon yellow that gets my spirits up every summer. In fact I just went running this morning and saw a beautiful yellow rose! Now that’s what makes me swoon ;) Speaking of which, what kind of flower is that in the photograph? I don’t quite recognize it, but I really like it a lot. Makes me want to go to a floral design school to know more about them.
