Beach Day

Ever since I can remember I have loved this tri-color combination.  To describe it now would be to say it’s classic and crisp, but growing up I just gravitated toward it.  It’s both tomboy and elegant; American and European.

When we were in nyc at market for work, buying summer from DVF, I had to write this on my order, for obvious reasons:

People can be apprehensive about putting these colors together because it can scream ‘patriotic’ and be a bit ‘too 4th of July’ but if you keep it simple, add some style and a bit of pattern-play you can make it your own.

The above Polyvore set I created {click on it to get specific item info} has the beach very much in mind since it is officially summertime {in Maine — there is nothing better — yippee!!} I’m thinking it’s going to be a one-piece kind of summer!  As a kid I would wear mine all day, with socks and sneakers, no less! Running around my grandfather’s yard, picking & eating berries and playing badminton. Some things never change:)

Happy Summer to you all!  Enjoy it, fill it up with good stuff, let your inner kiddo out to play and wear red-white-blue if you dare!
