I’m on the fence about this dress. I enjoy a maxi dress, but this one, from Dress Barn… I don’t know. I can’t decide if I think its subtly Americana, or if its as annoying as those American Flag tee shirts that Old Navy puts out every year (I HATE those. HATE!)
I imagine that if I go wine tasting this year, I’ll need a bag like this. The neon greenish yellow color says, “I’m a super fun gal who is known to drink a bottle of two of wine on occasion” but the perforated leather, and the Kate Spade label say, “I make a fairly high hourly wage, and if you back into my Lexus, I’m probably going to sue you just to exert my financial authority upon you.”
This little striped tote, from LLBean Signature is ideal for wine tasting because you could fit at least 5 bottles into it easily.
I like this dress, from Loft, but the model looks like she has a pretty bad case of Hep C and could use a hamburger.
You need a pair of wide leg linen pants. This pair is from Santuary, but I got like 8 pairs at Marshalls yesterday for $4 each. You should go there.
This is a top that could take you from winery to an evening at Ocean beach. I’m not sure why you’d be doing both on the same day, because that’s a lot of drinking and a lot of distance between, but what the hell. You have nothing better to do on a Saturday. Drink up. From Pima and Larkin (via Piperlime)
My feet hurt just looking at these shoes and, yet, I am compelled to own them. From Schutz. When I dress up like a character from a Midsummer Night’s Dream I feel like these shoes will come in handy, and you know I do that pretty often.
I am recent convert to the “cross body” bag style. If you wear a bag like this out at night to Fire Island, you never have to worry about leaving your bag someplace – OR concern yourself with all of those Cherry Grove pick pockets.
I just want these. From Gorjana.
This necklace, from the limited just screams Summer. OR it looks like pile of gumballs. I may have to chew on it to find out what it’s really made of.
I think that if I came of age in the 70’s I probably would have been ok with that. I may have become a huge drug addicted, who knows… but I really enjoy much of the Peace and Love Era fashion. This dress, from Madewell, reminds me of this era.
This Love Bird tank from Old Navy reminds me of a really noisy Toucan that I met in St. Thomas. The toucan, truth be told, was a really loud annoying ass, but he was very attractive. I’d wear him as a shirt.
I *will* purchase this hat, from Old Navy, before my cruise. I need this. It also comes in a color called “brown sugar” for those of you that support affirmative action.
A yellow espadrille. For days when your feet are asking for a break but you still want to look down at them mid-day accidentally mistake them for a G-Type Main sequence star based on spectral class, which is informally designated as a yellow dwarf. Like our sun. Learn some science, people.
There you have it. If you buy these items (these EXACT items) you’ll have a great Long Island summer. If not, well, I don’t know what to tell you. You’re on your own.
