Do you suddenly have a penchant for rattan and blue linen? Are you subconsciously slipping into button downs and wide brim hats while nibbling fresh garden salads and sipping crisp glasses of white? Is your home currently full of fresh cut flowers? Then you might be a Coastal Grandmother.
This aptly named aesthetic is trending all over TikTok (coined by @lexnicoleta), just in time for summer. Inspired by your favorite romcoms—the ones that all happen to take place in and around a Cape-Cod-style mansion complete with chic stripes, a salty sea breeze and just as many unexpected suitors as flowering bushes (TBD on that last one)—the Coastal Grandmother aesthetic is goals this season, and it’s actually way easier to achieve than you might think.
