Hi there! 

I was recently at Watch Hill beach in Rhode Island since I'm spending a lot of the summer on the CT shoreline at my family home. My look was one I picked up in Positano, Italy on the Amalfi Coast (see my last photo for one of my favorite Positano looks)! It was from a Beachy boutique they have there as well as in Capri exclusively and it's a gorgeous off the shoulder white dress with tassels on the borders. The straw bag with colorful tassels is also from another small boutique in Positano but these bags are everywhere this season!

White is so much fun to wear in the summer and is so perfectly Beachy with or without a tan. My gold Aldo sandals accentuated the look providing an updated neutral and a pop of metallic. I love how the straw bag can be very versatile from beach to going out as can this dress: it's a beach coverup or out to dinner dress with a wedge or dressy sandal.  

Happy Summer!
