Summer Sailing

I keep imagining my summer like this: I go sailing in the Adriatic sea.  I spend a month in Martha’s Vineyard.  I take a roadtrip to Maine and eat lobster rolls.  And in each summer fantasy I’m wearing stripes or rope, thanks to the coolness of nautical-inspired dressing.  I love mixing the classic stripe with bold metallics or a sleek nude, and of course taking edgier versions of classic seafarer pieces.  Here’s how to wear it:

A body-conscious skirt with a metallic top:

A little striped shift dress with killer nude or brown heels (a simple sandal would be great for day):

Canvas heels, off-grey skinny jeans and a playfully edgy top:

Or a really cool statement necklace and a hot lwd (little white dress, you need one for summer)
