Beach Pretty Fashion-Rock the Lobster Look this 4th

Growing up on Cape Cod, the 4th of July was always a big celebration,  every year we started the day at the iconic parade,  you could always hear the fire truck's sirens blaring as you walked to the parade, we would always see family friends pridefully driving their old vintage cars, and watch the local school band marching (looking a little wilted), and all the little children in town lining the street anxiously awaiting all the candy thrown from the floats, and the groups of kids running after the popular snow cone carts ... afterwards we would spend the afternoon steaming Maine lobsters and local steamers...(I could eat a bushel of clams myself),  and then it was time for the light show. We would walked down to the harbor and find our friends and join the crowd in  ooohing and awing as we watched the epic firework display...such a great day to celebrate our Independence!  So in honor of the 4th, I found some darling dresses, sweaters and accessories that would be so fabulous to wear this 4th...Be inspired and have a lot of fun with beach pretty!

Beach Pretty Entertaining-Under The Arbor

I love finding beautiful entertaining ideas that inspire my readers and this blog post is from the blog of Huddleson Linens, the contemporary luxury linens designed in Los Angeles by an Englishman and made from the finest Italian fabrics.

Huddleson is the product of a truly international environment – exquisite European linen and cotton given a unique twist by the combination of a classic English upbringing and the abundantly creative culture of California. The beautiful menu and tablescape is definitely a vision that I would love to recreate.  Obviously, we all do not have this perfect backdrop, we all wish we did...(I have always loved flowering vines growing on pergolas), but we can try to recreate this beautiful look, by buying flowering plants to arrange around the patio, dressing the table with a crisp pretty tablecloth with coordinating napkins, and when planning the menu, remember to stop by the farmer's market and pick up the freshest summer vegetables.. they will brighten the look and be so pretty on the table.

Fashion-White Sand and White Cotton

We have finally reached Memorial Day, and it is finally okay to wear summer white!  Time to add a new white cotton sundress ( I should be cut off..I love them all), a simple and always sexy white T..always perfect to wear with denim jeans, a white hot bikini for when you are rocking your best tan, and if you dare to wear white while you're sweating at the gym..a pair of white leggings and matching sports bra is so on point..and for date night  with your sweetie a gorgeous white lacedress...which he will love...all so beach pretty:)

Beach Pretty Fashion-Set the Sails with these Classic Styles

During summer days on Cape Cod, the bay and little coves would be filled with the graceful beauty of sailboats. My children's grandparents owned a sailboat name "Buoyant Spirits" and would take them on adventures to Block Island, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. I was so grateful they got to experience spending summer day's charting the beautiful Nantucket Sound. When your sailing, you want your wardrobe to include practical but stylish clothing. Sailing is fun, but it can have you running around the boat, so your clothes should be comfortable and functional. When you are pulling into your slip after a long but beautiful day on the water, and dreaming about a seafood dinner at your favorite restaurant in town, Beach Pretty has an easy and perfect look to change into ...a classic stylish blouse and linen pants...the water taxi has arrived...and you look sun tan, happy and beautiful! Have fun...:)
