Happy Tuesday, chic readers! We are so excited to share this week’s installment of Blank to Beautiful with all of you. Our good friend–and one of our favorite authors–Mary Kay Andrews is here today chatting about her new Instant New York Times Bestseller, Hello, Summer, (Which I couldn’t put down… I think it’s her best book yet!) the design aesthetic has inspired several of her novels and our fantastic new Wednesday night live collaboration with our friends Mary Alice Monroe, Kristin Harmel and Patti Callahan Henry, Friends & Fiction. You’ll want to hang on to every word Mary Kay says!

 

Check out some of our favorite summertime design photos too!
