Coastal Grandmother Style is the new trend for this summer and I am here for it. Think Diane Keaton on “Something’s Gotta Give” or Meryl Streep in “It’s Complicated”- breezy whites and linens, perusing the farmer’s market then coming home and cooking dinner with your local produce in your open kitchen while enjoying a glass of wine.

I have been in love with the Coastal Grandmother aesthetic since I was little and saw Father of the Bride.  I dreamt of living in that house and having a kitchen with my pots and pans hanging from the kitchen ceiling. Which is why whenever I’m cooking I listen to Nancy Meyers Kitchen on spotify.

Coastal grandmother is a feeling of carefree relaxation and being effortlessly put together. It’s being the ultimate hostess, having a bowl of lemons on your kitchen counter, making a delicious meal and having vases of fresh hydrangeas from your garden.

    Fun post, Nicolle! I have also really liked this style since I was very young. It’s that easy breezy comfortable vibe that I enjoy. I really like your 3 dresses! I just got a very similar one to your long striped dress from Old Navy. I will have to wear it and post it soon! Thanks so much for joining the Stylish Monday Link Party!
