In D.C., summer is the time for weekends away from our hot, swampy town. I personally love the heat, but I also prefer to enjoy that heat by a pool, on a beach, or on a boat with an icy cold beverage.
So for those of you who are headed out of town this weekend, or perhaps just daydreaming about the possibility, I've thrown together some yacht-worthy swimsuits and fair accessories. I've never been a fan of one-pieces bc I have a long torso, but this one by Robin Piccone is just so loverly, perfectly proportioned, and though she doesn't brag about it on her web site, made in the USA. I didn't add a shirt bc I feel like these suits are so pretty you could just throw on white shorts, slip on the shoes and be done with it.
However, if you are more demure than I, or if you find yourself having to go from yacht/beach to drinks/restaurant, I suppose a shirt is in order...if I were going to wear the linen shirt dress below, though, I would definitely stash a skinny belt in my bag to throw on over it. Waists are important. (having them).
