Before Summer comes to an official end, I wanted to share some of my favorite Summer preppy attire essentials. As a New Englander my style throughout the seasons for the most part is preppy. In the warmer months my wardrobe is dominated blues and whites in gingham and eyelet fabrics with lots of scalloped hems. And like any true prep if I can monogram an item I will. Here are my picks for the last few days of Summer.
As someone who is fair skinned I always wear a hat at the beach. This summer I purchased this Mark & Graham Wide Brimmed Straw Hat, which I monogrammed, of course. Paired with this ASOS Seersucker Bikini or Marysia Antibes Scallop Trim Bikini, some Karen Walker One Astronaut – Arrowed Sunglasses and my go to beach bag a L.L. Bean Boat Tote you will be beach ready. For date night rock this Jardin Eyelet Romper or classy Lilly Pulitzer Lynn Shift Dress with some Soludos Linen Espadrilles for a classy yet sexy look. On days you head out for drinks after work this Chelsea28 Off the Shoulder Chambray Top paired with Tate Eyelet Skirt or Vineyard Vines Striped dress with a pair of Jack Rogers will easily transition from day to night. A casual afternoon on the boat calls for my Harding Lane Nantucket Baseball Cap and something warmer like this Lilly Pulitzer Striped Dress or a classic J.Crew Gingham Button Down with some white shorts.
Enjoy the final days of Summer!
