I honestly feel like red and white just simply doesn’t get enough play as a color combination. I wore this exact same color combination in this exact same spot on my annual Coastal Maine expedition last year in this post and didn’t even realize it (Lizzie McGuire, you are an outfit repeater!) That outfit is actually one of my all time favorites (as I explained in the post). But I guess the ocean just feels like red and white to me, reminiscent of these lighthouses and old sails. For the second time in Maine this year, I broke out some reliable J.Crew Factory shorts. They really are the perfect vacation staple and I just cannot recommend them enough. I don’t know about you all, but I am always on the lookout for perfect white tops with intricate details and so I was beyond excited when I found this one. It goes with literally everything, but adds a bit more dimension than a traditional white cotton tee.

Thanks so much for reading! Hope you all have a great weekend!
If I were to pick an outfit that absolutely described me, this would definitely be it. It exhibits the hobbies I’ve adored over my years, such as a passion for music and an active lifestyle, and the places I’ve fallen in love with that inspire my wardrobe daily. Whether it’s feminine eyelet details and chandelier inspired earrings that remind me of the attention and romance in French architecture or some laid back sneakers that exude Californian surfer culture, I find that my favorite and most memorable destinations tend to leave marks on my mind and my style, forever reminding me of their best, most unique, and eternally endearing characteristics.
No place has influenced my life and style as much as the New England coast. I fell in love with the sea and the summer season of exploration and it is constantly inspiring my style in color schemes, silhouettes, and statements alike. The beauty of Coastal Maine is rivaled by no place I’ve ever been, and I try to visit my favorite spots once each summer. One such place is York’s Nubble Light, which is a classic American icon. Cape Neddick has gorgeous views of the Atlantic and a rocky shore that makes for some fun “climbing” for the child/adventurer in everyone. I can’t think of a better way to spend a Saturday in New England then a drive up the coast of Maine listening to the Rolling Stones, and walking along the ocean with my best friends.
