all american weekend wear

It's been a bit of a slow start, but it feels like summer is finally, actually here in the city. Just in the nick of time, too, with the 4th of July on Thursday! I hope you've got a great little vacation planned —my friends and I are headed out to the Jersey Shore for some good old fashion sun and surf. It's my first jaunt out to the beach this summer and I cannot wait. But what to pack?

Personally, I love red, white and blue together. To pack for a short trip like this, the key is to bring a few easy separates and one or two easy dresses. I'm currently obsessed with short-sleeve button up shirts) for men and women, and this little J. Crew popover is pretty much irresistible. It'll work perfectly over my suit at the beach, and tucked into a skirt when it's time to head back to the office on Monday. Sprinkle in some all-American details like a classic Yankee cap and Converse Chuck Taylors and it's the recipe for a well-stocked weekender.
