summer essentials

I have recently been living out in the Hamptons, feeling relaxed and at my place where I feel most happy. Since being out east, I haven't been thinking about outfits I want to shoot, checking my Instagram feed, or thinking about working out. In reality, I wore the same outfit as yesterday, opened Instagram once, and my daily steps involved walking to Sant Ambroeus for gelato.

Most of my time has been spent in the sun and sea, and my vitamin D deficiency is no longer. My best days start with morning laps in the pool and end with afternoon swims in the ocean, followed by evening walks on the beach and cooking dinner at home in my swimsuit (usually pasta or fresh seafood from the market). 

So what have I been wearing? A lot of one piece bathing suits (which double as the perfect bodysuit), long skirts and easy dresses (and a lot of SPF 60!). When I'm not barefoot, I live in these sandals, that pull together any casual outfit, or these flip flops and use a vintage straw tote that goes with me just about everywhere. I have also been loving my hair wet, undone or air-dried, and no makeup, with the exception of browslip tint and my favorite face sunscreen. Can summer please stay forever? See below for all of my S/S 2018 essentials.
