Come Sail Away

Friday night picnicking as you sail down the river, what better way to welcome summer? 

There's something myth-like about summer. Golden hazy days, time off school, backyard barbeques and evenings spent on the water mesh to form a series of idyllic months. I find that as the days grow longer and the sun fills the city with a heavy, mellowing heat only broken by the vigor of a thunderstorm my style turns to the minimalist. Lace and floral sundresses are always in my closet for the season of weddings, graduations and other various outdoor soirées but on the everyday my taste runs simpler in summer. My ultimate casual summer outfit: oversized white shirt from Madewell, blue jean shorts so well worn they feel like old friends, Ray Ban aviators, sandals and a bright pedicure. It's perfect look for playing tourist in your hometown or soaking up the last of the day's rays. My activity of choice? Getting nautical sailing with my family, with laughter on the breeze as our Flying Scot bounces merrily through the water xx
