Blue and White Summer

I came across these images of Alexandra Macon, the managing editor of Vogue Online, after The Love List made a reference to the feature last week. These images are perfectly capture a Southern summer from the Palmetto trees to the front porch… you can almost feel the hot, sticky air and slower pace of life through the screen.

On to her style, I’m obsessed with the summery and classic blue and white palette of her dress and the traditional L.L. Bean Boat and Tote with block monogram (I’ve been dying for one in royal blue just like this for years! I need to bite the bullet and get it.) 

These images inspired me to find a few similar dresses to recreate this look. These two from Modcloth have a slightly vintage feel and are perfect for late summer evenings spent on the front porch.

    Definitely bite the bullet and buy the boat & tote! I got that exact same one as a bridesmaid gift years ago, and it's one of the best bags I own!
