It’s summer, which means that my mind has taken up residence on a tropical island somewhere, while my body is firmly planted in front of an iMac. To celebrate the sunny skies, warm temperatures, and great excuses for cocktail sipping, today we’re taking a moment to celebrate two of our favorite trends that are currently enjoying their moment in the sun. Though they have a similar spirit, the traditions hail from opposite coasts: the pineapple has is a long standing symbol of Southern hospitality, while the Martinique print that inspires so many palm and banana-leaf versions made its debut at the iconic Beverly Hills Hotel in the 1940s.
