happy summer weekend!

If you live in New England you know we are well into a big heat wave, and while it is oppressively hot, we do endure some brutal winters in New England, so why not make the most of this weather and do what we wait for all winter?  It’s a perfect weekend to spend on the water whether at the beach or at a pool.

I thought the image below looked like a delightful way to spend the day.  On a boat with friends.  I am planning on spending tomorrow doing fun summery things.  One of which is to try paddleboarding for the first time {wish me luck}!!  Here are some of my essentials for a day on the water.  Wishing you and yours nothing but a happy summer weekend!!

 

1 | it is so hot, I can only think of wearing white right now.  this chloe scalloped triangle bikini is adorable!!
2 | these miu miu hexagonal white frame sunglasses would compliment any summer look. Miu Miu can do no wrong in my book of fashion!!
3 |  i discovered this lovely Reuilly pinot gris from the Loire valley over the 4th of July.  it is the perfect summer wine with an increble balance of aromatic flavor and a crispness to it.  It also happens to be at a nice price point.  you can find it here {available in-store}.
4 | these SPF rash guards from J.Crew are both really cute and perfect to protect you from a sunburn.  I am paranoid about burning, so this is a must have for me at the beach.
5 | I like a casual easy flip flop that I don’t need to worry about ruining with sand, salt water and my feet getting wet.  havianias are perfect for this.  this reveillon top pattern was inspired by ‘the Brazilian tradition of jumping seven waves for good luck in the New Year’.  they are neutral with just enough detail and good karma!

boat snacks: it is so hot out I think it limits your desire for food {fine with me!!}.  Light summery foods such as fresh oysters, a crudité {try this one} and a refreshing gazpacho {try this refreshing pineapple cucumber gazpacho – you’ll thank me later!!} are a lovely way to snack in style on a summer day.

cheers and enjoy!
