i can't think of a better way to spend labor day, than cruising around on a sail boat. so when i sat around pondering my second friday's fancies post & its corresponding theme, 'labor day chic,' i already knew the direction i was heading, & it was toward the water.

and unfortunately this is all just make-believe, as my real labor day will be spent studying for the GRE.

this phillip lim button up shirt is the perfect sheer cover-up if you have fair skin that gets crispy (read: painfully burnt) really easily, like mine. of course i chose white linen, as i am one that follows the 'no white after labor day' rule. (i know, i know... i can't help it... i just always have). this chic linen piece satisfies my need to have one last hurrah of sorts, while also providing my skin with a much-needed break from the rays. of course the lanvin wedges & dorothy perkins chunky necklace are a bit over the top for a day on the lake, but i just couldn't resist (& the whole point of this is about dreaming, right?). i also couldn't say no to the precious, retro-ish silhouette of this little black bikini. ruffles never scare me. it was love at first sight. for another pop of color, i threw in a chanel polish i'm currently lusting over: peridot. one sheer, candy-pink sweep of nars turkish delight lip gloss, & i'd be ready to tackle a day of sunbathing, drinks with umbrellas, & those last few summer breezes.
