It's summertime! Long days, watermelon, and coconut-scented sunscreen are some of the sensory pleasures of the season. This week we've escaped back home to southern New England for a week at the beach, ending with our annual lobster dinner on the 4th of July.
In anticipation, this gave me a perfect reason to compile a few accessories for the season. Those that made it into my crisp, new L.L. Bean tote:
KJL pearl resin necklace. I found a very similar one on sale during a stroll into Saks downtown. I have been pulled aside on the street, in restaurants and on public transportation for compliments. The bold chain links pop when worn on black, stripes, or any summery color.
I have become so much more sun savvy when hitting the beach, and will be bringing along this J. Crew wide-brim straw hat. The floppy straw folds flat and pops right back into shape, making for easy packing.
Same goes with the chic slim Havaianas, accentuating pedicured toes wearing Essie's coral-toned vermillionaire.
