Okay, so Joe needs to do something with his hair. But that's beside the point.
Not to be too ADD here or anything, but I'm going to change the subject because I really want to talk about sailor-inspired clothes. I'm talking navy-and-white stripes. I'm talking red, white, and blue. I'm talking crisp cotton short and cute tees and tanks. Anchors, ropes, the whole 9 yards. It's all just too cute - and perfect for summer. Simultaneously sophisticated and casual.
Here's a picture from D&G's spring (I know, I know) collection which is exactly what I'm talking (so much) about. I realize that was -gasp- an entire season ago, but I think it's fab for summer.
As much as I love that style, I think something entirely different is needed for lounging poolside. I'm not quite sure of that recipe, but I feel that it goes something like this:
hot weather + lounge chair + sunglasses + fruity drink (may be substituted with something exotic and fizzy) + magazines = amazing pool experience!
Of course, that's not perfected. I could use some tips (hint hint, leave a comment, hint hint)...
