Beach outfits can be tricky at a certain age! However, beach ensembles are less tricky than a swim suit! This is why I am wearing a Gottex pareo and a Billabong cami for the little beach on Sag Harbor. A lot of coverage and some pattern mixing, as per my signature style!
I don’t sit long at any beach. Instead, I like to walk and see the boats at the wharf. On a sunnier day last week, I got this snap!
I purchased most of the items for my beach outfits in East Hampton at LVIS! Every piece was bought either second-hand, or from local and-or small businesses.
In all beach outfits, I am wearing copious amounts of sunscreen! And I am smiling in each shot! I love Summer!
This weekend had a single sunny day, but was mostly cloudy with some rain. I was actually happy about this! Both of my adult children were home and we spent some quality time indoors, and with each other. We cooked a bit, and played cards. When it got cold I actually used our new fireplaces.
I recently replaced my woodturning fireplaces with gas ones, as my lungs can not handle the wood particulates from the original ones. So when the temps dipped down, I was thrilled to have a fire with my family !
The porcelain urns were also bought at LVIS. I saw comparable ones for a gazillion dollars. Ok, I do exaggerate a bit, but second hand shopping in this tony town does reap some fabulous rewards! My new pillow above is from Etsy. I like to shop small and local as best as I can, in both fashion and decor.
Below the vases came from the Retreat, where proceeds go to battered women. My wool pillow below is also from Etsy.
While in Sag Harbor, I did some shopping at a favorite resale shop and found this fabulous Dries Van Noten skirt. It was too large for me, but what a spectacular print. It was knee grazing and whisper light wool, and would be perfect paired with an eyelet cami for the beach . It is brand new with tags! Who says you can’t wear designer duds while sunning?
How pleased am I ! This shot below is a new-to-me straw handbag that just came in the mail ! This handbag is too structured for a beach look, but it lovely and you will see it soon on the blog!
Thrilled to be indoors with family, I only captured a few shots of the lovely terrain of East Hampton. Such lovely flowers and landscaping are typical of this beach haven.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE BEACH OUTFITS?
I know most women here wear a sheer tunic over a bikini and show a bit of yoga toned bodies They look sensational ! Do you wear cover ups at the beach, or just enjoy the splendid feeling of hardly any clothes in the hot sun? WHATEVER YOU CHOOSE DO WEAR YOUR SPF!
