Pool, Beach, Boat: Slim Aarons Style

Pool, Beach, Boat: Slim Aarons Style

When summer hits, I am always inspired by the glamourous imagery of iconic photographer Slim Aarons...

Wherever he was photographing, he was the master of catching the carefree spirit of his chic, jetset subjects. This weeks post is an hommage to Slim Aarons, his magical way of capturing the mood of the summer and my personal curation for your next trip to the pool, beach or boat! Happy Summer and Happy Shopping! 

Look 1: T H E  P O O L

Vibe: Boho Chic
Color: Sunny Yellow

How to work it: Whether visiting a friends home or relaxing poolside at your favorite summer get-a-away, bold shades of yellow, blue and green are summers stand-out colors. Add a touch of crochet, a floppy hat, a woven straw bag and easy slides to create a boho chic look, similar to these Slim Aarons babes. Don't forget sunscreen and an umbrella so you don't go from boho chic to boho burnt! ;-)

Look 2: T H E  B E A C H

Vibe: Sea & Be Seen
Color: Fire Engine Red

How to work it: If you're a beachgoer,  stand out in the crowd by wearing a super bright color like fire engine red. I'm personally loving the ruffle top bikini for a touch of flirtatious fun and the color coordinating kaftan and straw beach bag. Throw on your hat, moisturize your lips and get ready for a serious (or not-so-serious) game of beach paddle!

Look 3: THE BOAT

Vibe: Easy Breezy
Colors: Blue & White

How to work it: If you're lucky enough to be on a boat this summer, get into the vibe with nautical stripes, tones of blue and crisp whites. When cruising, all you need are your sunglasses,  sunscreen and bikini. However, when it's time to disembark, an easy dress, comfortable shoes and a long-sleeved laying piece are your island-hopping essentials. Don't forget a large tote bag to carry souvenirs and a finishing spritz of fresh perfume to leave a memorable trail wherever you go!
