It's about this time of year that I always start to yearn for the smell of salt water and the warm weather that spring brings. To stave off late winter's chill I also inevitably begin daydreaming about that coveted week off in March or April affectionately known as spring break — despite having not actually observed the annual tradition for many years. It's one of those rituals I can't seem to let go of as an adult, and along with it the shopping trip to purchase new supplies: swimsuit, sunscreen, sunglasses, beach towel, etc.
So when our market and beauty editor Lindsey Ellis Beatty sent me a link to Barn Dandys' painted pine beach chair I tucked it into my mental beach bag in preparation for my virtual spring trip to the coast (and hopefully a real one later this summer).
The $98 chair comes in seven different designs including hula girl (shown) and surfer boy. I hope it helps transport you to the beach whether you take an actual trip or only journey there in your mind!
