Well folks, the warm months here on the east coast are about in the bag. But aren’t you just hoping for an Indian Summer? I know I sure am; I love the coziness of a soft, new sweater for fall, accompanied with a pair of new suede boots and jeans, but summer… I just can’t quite you. Fashion Pulse Hubby and I made a promise to each other at the beginning of the season, that we would make our way to the beach this summer no less than six times.
Being as little as 45 minutes from the shore (traffic permitting), it was do-able; we just had to 1)actually be around in NYC on the weekend and 2)be able to push weekly tasks and chores aside to enjoy a few hours in the sunshine. Guess what? We did it! And I have the freckles to prove it (well, not too many; I try to stay as protected as possible from the sun).
I took up SUP and SUP yoga this summer (shout out to A-Team Paddleboarding!), so some beach days involved a bit of a work out first. On other days we’d head to the ocean and then go out immediately afterwards, so having minimal, but versatile garments was key. My most important elements to make the transition to evening involve a great coverup dress, summery wedges, small bag, and a stylish yet functional hat. I picked up this terry cloth dress at the beginning of the season, and loved it more and more, with each wear. Isn’t that great when it happens?
