Hot Hot Heat.
It's supposed to be 90 degrees tomorrow so I started thinking about my wardrobe, and the fact that I don't own any good summer clothing. I put together a 'wishlist' of clothing and accessories that I would love to have for the summer. This list includes:
... A Chambray button-up
... A Button-down shirt in essential summer plaid
... Broken-in chino shorts
... A Slub jersey polo
... A pair of flip-flops
... A new pair of go-to sneakers
... Some Real boat shoes
... A pair of nice sunglasses
.... A nice watch
.... What might be the most nautical belt ever
... And a duffel bag to go everywhere with.
I would be completely satisfied owning only these article this summer. On a side note, I have been looking for an all-purpose bag for a while and this canvas one seems to be perfect for all occasions. I plan on doing a bit of traveling this summer and as of now I don't have a bag that I can just shove things in and leave!
For all those female readers, you too should consider some of these items! A chambray shirt is perfect for summer weather, breathable and versatile. I didn't particularly care for boat shoes until I got to the east coast and realized that my feet need to be sockless, and they cannot continue to wear boots. And find something nautical; stripes are easy, as well as the theme of anchors, and the rough texture of rope.
Prepare yourself for summer and all of it's activities; it is coming faster than you realize!
