The Nancy Meyers-Inspired Coastal Grandmother Trend Is Taking Over The Internet
Contrary to what you might think, you don't have to be a grandma *or* live at the beach to be a coastal grandmother. If you have no idea what a coastal grandmother is, think of this new aesthetic like Ina Garten meets Martha Stewart meets Nancy Meyers. In her TikTok describing the trend, Lex Nicoleta explains it as a love of "coastal vibes, recipes and cooking...cozy interiors and more."
