Depressing, isn’t it? And who wears black to the beach on the pen-ultimate summer weekend? Me, of course. I did change into my bathing suit later, but was a bit more dressed up for a Sunday brunch in Point Lookout, Long Island, on our way to Lido Beach. We spent the day at the Malibu Shore Club at the beach, a lovely bungalow of cabanas, swimming pools, the shoreline, and of course, the Atlantic Ocean. Upon arriving an old mosaic sign couldn’t help but catch the eye, reading “Malibu” in a retro-cursive font and colors that made the perfect backdrop for photos.
The pinnacle of the look was my new Keds, part of the Keds x Kate Spade New York collection which feature a pointed toe and vintage-inspired Cheetah print, made anew with it’s cool silhouette and infusion of “it” hues. A canvas shoe can truly embody the casual spirit of the summer, but can also be dressed up, like I did, with the right accoutrement; in this case, a little black dress and cool minimalist vest. I’m also sporting “man made” beach hair, which also represents the awesome beauty looks of summer, but can easily be duplicated year ’round with a bit of a good spritz (lately I’m loving the new Redken Fashion Waves 07 Sea Salt Spray).
