Midweek Mood Board

Here’s a little something I put together to get you through the rest of the week. Summertime is coming to a close, and these are our last few weeks to make the most of our vacations. With so many great travel sites on the web it’s easier than ever to book a weekend getaway— I’ve done it twice this summer. This week’s Mood Board is made to inspire you with clothing for a beach atmosphere. Along with staples like the nautical striped shirt and vintage one-piece suit, you can take lots of tips from nature: from marine animals to the colors you see around you.

When I imagine the colors associated with the beach, my thoughts go from the bright sun, to the waves, and finally the sand under my feet. The hue of the yellow colorblock dress mimics the sun, and the color of the khaki pants is like sand after the waves have washed away. On a more literal note, you can show your love for your favorite animals, or those seen at sea such as the goldfish, whale or starfish. And of course you have to represent the nautical theme! Along with the striped shirt, there’s the boat-print dress and beach tote made of rope material.

If you haven’t checked the beach off of your summer list, you only have a few weeks left. Get lost!
