Belle by Sigerson Morrison Sandals

I'm back in the good old state of CT after a great time in Camden, ME with Lark Hotels. I had a blast exploring the coastal town and promise to dive deeper into the adventure with another installment of Sailor Travels. 

Until then, enjoy this outfit from last week (watch the vlog here). As I'm always suffering from leather fever, it finds its way into my outfits some way or another. Yet, sporting a leather vest in hot and humid New York wasn't one of my finest moments, I digress.

The real magic of this outfit is what is underneath the vest. Per usual, the genius babes at Reformation created another piece that makes my wallet weep, but my heart soar. Their uber soft tees are already a staple in my everyday wardrobe, and this cheeky addition just adds to the collection. Sure it was an impulse buy, but I've worn it twice out and about, once to bed, and once to the gym. This tee and I will certainly not be go(ing) our own way.

The Great View

Wearing: Alexis top,J.Crew skirt, Belle by Sigerson Morrison sandals,Saint Laurent bag

I was feeling generous and decided to give you all another healthy helping of good old New York City in what other than black and white. Quite a fine one she is, don't you agree? 

Or

I might just be downright obsessed with these photos. 

On the other end, as you are reading this I am in the complete opposite end of the concrete jungle spectrum.

 You guessed it. 

The ocean blue.

Time to set sail to Buzzards Bay for the 2014 Vineyard Race. A sunrise/moonrise instagram will be coming your way soon enough. 'Laters gators.

Always Return

 Wearing: Maje dress (sold out, similarhere,here,), Belle by Sigerson Morrison shoes (old,similar)

Back to my dearly loved stripes. 

 Even after my frolics with florals- still love 'em- stripes are hands down my number one. My current favorite- the pinstripe- takes this shirtdress to another level of menswear done well.

I digress, I failed to sport this red white and blue number over the holiday weekend, but as I've been told my family and friends, I'm quite the Americana chick. So, I've come to the conclusion that I'm a walking flag a majority of the time- often lacking red (hey! blue & white are the only two colors I wear!)

Seeking Overalls

 Wearing:Levis overalls,Alexis top, Belle by Sigerson Morrison shoes (old,similar),Jules Smith choker,Brandy Melville ring,Ray-Ban sunglasses

Remember way back when I was on the road of the overall-esque romper which eventually turned into a path of seeking, dare I say, overalls? Oh yes, we have arrived in a land where a farmer's favorite attire is stylish. 

I'm praying I don't look like a farmer.

Since I took the road down to overall-world, I might as well give it a good whirl. To avoid looking like two things- a) an young child or b) a hillbilly; a modern crop top, sandals, and by dear God a Chanel hopefully helped me avoid going into that territory. Which by all means should remained uncharted, if that wasn't clear already.

For a person like me who likes to take the "trend less" route of personal sartorial ways, these overalls forced me to step up my game and out of my comfort zone. 

Alas, I'm crossing my fingers it worked. In all honesty, overalls are sorta rad.

I have been drawn to everything backless as of late. During my holiday shopping, I found this Motel  

playsuit

with cutout detailing and an open back. The color of it is perfect as well- a mix of cobalt and purple. It's been a great coverup for beach days and an easy outfit for dinner. On a quick note- I would love to know what you would like to see on the blog this year. Shop the look below:

Exploring St.Tropez

The amazing part of traveling is experiencing things and places that you wouldn't normally. Another bonus is when you travel to a place that is absolutely stunning. On our last day in St.Tropez, we went into the main town. Every little stairway, home or side street is covered in blooming flowers and overgrown ivy. The beach is scattered with striped umbrellas and bronzed people, and the harbor is filled with boats of all sizes; from colorful wooden boats to magnificent yachts that are on their way to the beaches. To put it simply, it was amazing.
