At this very moment, it’s likely that I’m daydreaming, envisioning a carefree version of myself wandering aimlessly around the Hamptons wearing a colorfully designed maxi dress or skirt.
Unfortunately, my job (and, well, life in general) prevents this from becoming a consistent reality, but at least the second half of that fashionable fantasy is ownable.
I was recently introduced to the brand (of the skirt I’m wearing) at a blogger brunch in the West Village. Alex, the designer, is a sweetheart, and I remember instantly feeling drawn to her modern style, signature prints and patterns.
Most notably, this tropical leaf skirt encompasses much of everything that I appreciate about summer — bold prints, bright colors, shortened hemlines. (I need a tan, okay?)
For now, I’ll snap out of my beach-side reverie and focus on channeling a season’s worth of Hamptons-chic style — breezy separates and easy essentials that capture the essence of summer on the East End.
Until next time, you can find my banana leaf skirt and I weaving through the concrete jungle. (Or, more accurately, at my desk.)
