Sleeping on lawn chairs, roasting marshmallows, laying out on the beach. Yes, it’s that time of year folks. Summer is in high swing and if you haven’t taken a vacation yet, you should.
I had a great time frolicking in the Hamptons this past weekend. Everyone wore their favorite summer dresses and latest bikinis. And I loved hanging out at Southampton Social Club under the stars in my favorite maxi dress this past weekend with Gabriella and Lidiya Oros of Oros Music. We had perfect weather and all I needed was a hammock to complete the night!
So now that summer is finally here and things slow down just a tad bit so that everyone can scurry to the Hamptons or that tropical island, I am setting a goal to learn just a tad bit of French. I already speak Spanish and they say that French should not be that tough as they are similar languages. With these lofty goals and some of this work that I am doing, no doubt, a tad bit of French will help.
I’ve had my eye on this beautiful green Python clutch from Lanvin that is not currently being shipped outside the EU. Fellow fashion lovers, these are the kinds of things that make you want to hop on a plane to France, right? Well, anyway, let’s see how much I can learn over the summer. Do you speak any languages?
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!
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.
