Sail La Vie

Pastor (my daddy) just got a boat. I drove with him for several hours to pick it up a few weeks ago. My father says that "The only real boats are sailboats." I told him, "I don't care what it is, as long as it has somewhere I can layout and get sun." I love the feeling of the wind and being out in the ocean, its great, I just love it the most when I'm getting nice and bronze. And warm! Laying in the sun and just soaking in all those vitamins and feeling its power (after carefully applied sunblock of course!) is unlike any other feeling in the world.

So this blog is all about things that are essential for a day on the boat with Pastor. I think he's naming it "Sail la Vie"

  What I'm Wearing:
1) Land's End Bandeau Swimsuit- I loveee the floral print on this suit
2) Oversized Men's Polo Sweater- when I'm sitting on the bow in the wind, I love having a big sweater to cuddle into
3) Rayban ClubMasters- Who doesn't love this classic, preppy staple?!
4) Lilly Pulitzer Sunglasses strap in Floaters [my pattern of choice]
5) The sailing must-have- Sperry Topsider Bluefish 2-eye. I simply adore the seersucker and dark brown leather!

What's In My Bag?
1) Vineyard Vines Tote- I love this one with the nautical signal flags on top!
2) A monogrammed beach towel of course- I use a diamond monogram
3) Jocalat Lara Bars- Chocolate mint is my favorite
4) San Pelligrino Aranciata- Think virgin mimosa. Refreshing and light. I fell in love with them last summer and we've been enjoying an affair to remember ever since.
5) Lilly Pulitzer Koozie to put your SanPel in- southern staple and it comes in my pattern
6) Clinique SPF 25 Spray- A predisposition to skin cancer runs in my family
7) Something to read- A twist on Pride & Prejudice is my next choice.

I don't take an iPod because I love listening to the sounds- the waves, wind, seagulls. I love it all.

Coming soon... New Lilly Collection Items I love! and a tribute to Audrey with Boatneck dresses
