shall we go boating?

It's officially boating season, ushering in crisp whites, light and airy knits, and casual footwear, longing to be broken in while sunning on deck. We're taking out ours for the inaugural ride this weekend. An exercise at the epitome of employing casual comfort chic, we can't wait to soak in tangerine beams, tumble through waves and take in the comforting breath of the lake. So slather on the SPF and let's get to kicking this season off right. Judging by how the first half of the year has gone, we can't ignore the feeling it's going to be one hell of a summer.

In preparation, we bring you the key pieces and accoutrements of the boating variety

  1. Don the denim cutoff in classic all- americana fashion
  2. Slip out of Topsiders of the Sperry, seasoned sea variety (we're craving navy blue at the moment)

Imbibe in:
  1. A refreshing light beverages such as our favorite cocktail, Big Gingers, complete with ample squeezes of both lemon and lime ( recipe forthcoming) 
  2. Don't neglect the water. Coveting this water bottle from Calypso St. Barth. Umm, hello it has a skull on it!

  1. A slouchy canvas bag to stash your reads, skin and hair essentials
  2. Headwear to protect and shield 

Hope you all have a fabulous holiday weekend! Can't wait to get out on the water!


  1. Ooooh this list is getting me in the mood to go sailing.. And I've never been sailing.. haha! But I definitely will dress like I'm off to chill in a rich man's yacht!

    Kisses! xxx

  2. Makes me want to hit the lake! :)
