Dock Holiday

Shirt (Jones New York, TJ Maxx); Shoes (Lindsay Phillips with custom monogram buttons from the Preppy Patch); Bag (Anne Klein); Capri Pants (Casual Living); Sunglasses (Cole Haan)
It's been an unusually mild summer in central Indiana.  As we head into Labor Day weekend, it's hard to believe there have been less than ten days that registered above 90 degrees (last year we had more than fifty days of 90 degree plus heat)!  Although it's been a busy summer, with not near as much time on the lake as I'd like, we've managed to enjoy ourselves and make some wonderful memories with friends both new and old.  

Most of my "lake time" this summer has also involved the same navy, white and yellow striped Jones New York shirt - I wore it for a lakeside shrimp boil we hosted for some new neighbors; during a weekend on the water with my best friend from childhood and her family;  for a dockside "team building" function with some of my colleagues; and for a lovely mid-week solo boat excursion during which our bright yellow pontoon was the only boat on the water.  Maybe it's the boat neck with yellow trim that's a perfect match for the color of the pontoon, or maybe it's the nautical stripes, but I've reached for this shirt over and over again (and always with my SwitchFlops, of course).  Is it over the top to coordinate my clothes to a boat?!  Probably.  Do I care?  Not a bit.

Wishing you all a relaxing Labor Day weekend!
Summer 2013 fun on, and by, the lake with dear friends! 
Fashion is what you buy; Style is what you do with it!
