So I'm back from my first trip to East Hampton and after four or five barbecues and a little sunshine I couldn't be more ready for summertime! I was thinking Audrey Hepburn in Sabrina while packing my bag for the weekend. The scene where she & Humprey Bogart go sailing made me excited to bring out my best pair of high waisted shorts. They are crisp cotton white shorts from the 50's with a zipper and button on the back. The length is just right to be fresh without showing too much. They ended up being a staple during the day with a few layering pieces to throw on over them. I lived in the seersucker jacket. It was the perfect weight for the chillier nights and great as a beach cover-up that kept me warm when the sun slipped behind the clouds. Unsure of what all we would be doing, I decided to toss in a couple of cotton dresses to wear casually with my nude saltwater sandals. That turned out to be what I threw on when we went to a brunch on Sunday morning. To keep it simple and to really feel like I was on vacation I wore a silk scarf in my hair so I didn't have to fuss with a blow dryer or hair product. While I'm typing this I'm missing the pool & endless goodies from the grill. Hope you had a wonderful start to summer, too!
