Post image for summer getaways – the beach

she loves the sand between her toes and salt water in her hair, and the sun brings a sparkle to her eye.  her style is easy and effortless- soft materials, solid colors and silhouettes that can be sexy when dressed up.  the most important thing is comfort because she never knows what the day will hold- it could end cuddled up in blankets by a beach bonfire or with a night on the town so versatility is key.  she’s all about the layers upon layers in the winter but she lives for spring, summer and splashing in the surf.

when thinking about sandy the lyrics to the beatles song “julia” always come to mind.

sandy’s summer getaway is the beach, whether that be a tropical destination like vieques in puerto rico or the california coast.  she always packs light- easy pieces that can be worn as beach cover-ups during the day and then dressed up if she goes out at night, and a warm sweater or jacket is a must for evenings when the breeze chills her sun burnt skin.  in her beach bag are definitely a few items from – what else? – our beach line; sunglasses and a big brimmed hat to shade her eyes, sandals and some accessories to throw on at night time.

1. portman top rimmed wayfarer; 2. straw and leather tassle tote; 3. modern haze printed bikini; 4. printed towel; 5. north beach wrap sandal; 6. siwy madeleine cutoffs; 7. giant brim straw hat; 8. ruffle sleeveless tunic; 9. ammonite cluster necklace; 10. fp pull on jean; 11. green almond druzy ring; 12. zulu dress; 13. black sands tunic; 14. centered pullover.

i can’t stop staring at this artwork by christine gray.  it’s colorful and trippy and brings to mind the atmosphere at a music festival – probably because the one with the tents and bonfire reminds me of burning man.

Late Lights

i want to be in this last image jumping on the trampoline into fiery night skies…

about her artwork, christine says, “in my work i look at the cultural mythologies that misrepresent nature and our relationship to it. i remake landscapes according to these fictions through both objects and painting, thereby adding to and revealing the fallacy of these representations. the sculptural tableaux i make as models for my paintings are theatrical, temporary situations where the real and imagined collapse into a space outlined by contradictory boundaries. extraordinary outcomes are made feasible by the distortion of the everyday. my most recent body of work focuses on the american myth of the seeker, traveling alone through untouched landscapes in search of a revelatory experience of the divine.”

check out more of her awesome work here.

my greatest loves are my husband, family and friends… i also love penguins and butterflies! my favorite place in the world is the great barrier reef in austrailia. i went there on my honeymoon and had the most amazing time! the weather, the water and the landscape were unforgettable. i love to shop and walk around NYC, people watch, eat at new restaurants, spend time with friends and hang out with my family in florida. on a typical day off i’ll exercise, walk around the city and explore new places, spend time in central park, catch up on tv from the week and go out to a fun dinner with friends!

the giant whole foods on 5th and lamar isn't the original whole foods. the original (which is now Cheapo Discs) was built in 1980 on lamar and 11th. The store flooded in 1991, and in the late 90's they built another location which is now book people, rei, and anthropologie. in 2005, the giant whole foods on 5th and lamar was built, which is the biggest whole foods in the world.
