working for the weekend

With a long holiday ahead, I'm already filling the ol' weekender bag with all my beach goodies. Since I'll be getting some much needed R&R up at a Lake Tahoe cabin, the activities in store are pretty low key: napping and reading on the beach, soaking some sun, afternoon hikes and riding to the store on our bikes.

1.) Love how much this coral red pops! You all know I'm a sucker for pairing my silk shirts with laid back jeans or cut offs, which is exactly what I plan on doing!
Silk shirt, J. Crew, $98

2.) A wide brim panama hat goes with me just about anytime I even think about going out in the sun. Why? It is absolutely NO fun to get sunburnt right in the part of your hair. I have a fun Coachella experience to thank for that lesson learned.
Panama hat, Madewell, $58

3.) Chevron stripes. One piece swimsuit. Yes and yes.
Chevron printed one piece swimsuit, Undrest, available at Net-a-Porter, $280

4.) It's not the Fourth of July without a pair of your trusty denim cut off shorts. I'm pretty sure our founding fathers would agree.
Denim cut off shorts, J. Brand, available at Bird, $155

5.) Having spoiled my Karen Walkers with a lot of wear lately, I need to resurface my Ray Ban wayfarers for a bit. Always classic, always chic.
Clubmaster sunglasses, Ray-Ban, available at Barneys New York, $140

6.) A good strappy flat sandal. Perfect for all the trekking and biking around. No heels here. (My feet are already rejoicing!)
Strappy sandal, Madewell, $118

7.)  I've been reading Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged for the past several months but haven't been able to get some good alone time with it. I hope to stick my nose in for several hours and only come up for lemonade refills!
Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, Amazon, $9.99

What are your plans for the Fourth?


  1. LOVE that hat...great picks doll :)

  2. I would love a lazy getaway exactly like the one you're having! To have my main mission be finishing a book, sipping cocktails, and hanging out with my guy and my dog would be so great! Love the picks.

  3. I love the chevron suit! The one piece is just what I like, and how adorable are those sandals?

  4. Love the bathing suite! Nice retro vibe!


  5. I'm a sucker for one pieces. The chevron print is remarkable, and the swimsuit makes perfect beachwear.

  12. Such a perfect swimsuit! Have fun in Tahoe!


  13. love that swimsuit - 1 piece bathingwear is my summer must-have!

    would be interesting to hear what you think of the ayn rand - i read about 2/3rds of the book but eventually put it back on the bookshelf, it seemed to get too entrenched in ideas to hold the narrative - in my opinion :)

  15. Great pics for a weekend at the beach
