Sartorial Sunday: Weekend Vibes

Head to Toe: Top, Zara // Shorts, Gap // Sandals, Reef // Hat, American Eagle

Sunday night sigh...After a particularly relaxing weekend, the work week has snuck up on me again. But after some time with friends and a little good ol' pampering (an overdue mani/pedi happened), I'm feeling rested and ready. I devoted today to some much-needed me time. I woke up and read my Sunday paper over Saturday's leftover quiche cups, then headed to the beach for some sun. I threw on jean shorts and long sleeves over my bathing suit (it's usually breezy by the water but surprisingly wasn't today) and slipped into my super-comfy Reef sandals. I tossed my beach blanket and some reading material into a roomy Design Within Reach tote—a freebie from a work event—that's the perfect-sized catch-all. With a wide-brimmed hat and shades, I didn't need a stitch of makeup. I even spritzed salt spray into my hair to fake some beachy waves (because if you have ever seen Long Island Sound you understand why I wasn't actually swimming). After a few hours at my cozy local beach I wrapped up the day at a yoga class taught by one of my favorite instructors. It must be all that zen; I'm not even mad about this whole Monday thing...


  1. That looks so fun - I can't wait to go to the beach sometime soon (:
