Last Dog Days of Summer: Natural on the Beach in Singer Island


This past weekend I spent time with loved ones in my home state of Florida. I got some work done and some play too. The beach was gorgeous. I opted for a completely no-fuss natural look to enjoy the last dog days of summer. It’s always great to visit your hometown and feed your spirit with the love of family. I hope you’re soaking up some of the last rays of summer too and had a great weekend.

Summer is in the Air: Waves, Water and that Perfect Maxi Dress for a Hamptons Weekend

I was looking at some old Instagram photos of an amazing time I had on the beach last Memorial Day Weekend and decided to share a few. I just can’t wait for the weather to fully warm up in New York City and for a few Hamptons weekends. As an original native of Florida, I live for the beach (only the good ones though) and I adore cute summer sandals, hats, bikinis, maxi dresses and jumpers. As I finalize my summer plans and get out of these final exams at FIT, I am absolutely looking forward to summer this year! Instagram by Malinda Knowles, Jupiter Beach Florida

Here’s an old painting of a beach wave that I did some time ago but I’m challenging myself to do better than that and get a bit more depth and contour in the wave and ocean water. As I said before, all of my artwork should be up on the blog before the summer is over.

Anyway, I love a good maxi dress for the summer and spotted some new ones recently that seem great for that Florida or Hamptons summer vacation weekend. Check out a few below from Tibi, Roberto Cavalli, and Diane von Furstenberg. See even more summer wear here.
