boating in style is my fave (guest post from kathleen)

May 11, 2012

I had a baby so I’ve invited some fave guests to take over for me while I spend time with the little guy. Today’s post is from the expert on stylish maternity wear, Kathleen of Style Nine.

Right now, boating in style is just my fave in theory. I live within walking distance of Lake Michigan, so I end up boating a few times a summer, usually in worn-out shorts. Not this summer! Instead, I’m taking cues from the ladies who marry Greek billionaires and dock in Portofino, and heading out dressed a bit more glamorously.

Of course, the boats I go on don’t usually come with crews, so some practicality is also in order: A bag that looks good, but won’t spill. Shoes that stay on and won’t scuff the deck. Gourmet treats for lunch. A few chic things that seem plucked from la dolce vita, but are versatile enough for everyday life on land too (wardrobe versatility really is my fave).
