Blue + White + Yellow = Summer {also, Verameat jewelry}

08/06/2011 § 4 Comments

I’ve always found the pairing of navy blue, yellow and crisp white extremely summery and more than a little nautical (even if not done on purpose).  With it getting hotter than all get out in the city, I’ve had to relinquish my hope that we would have a long, pleasant spring.  Summer has definitely arrived, and I’ve lightened up accordingly.

You may have also noticed I am a good bit tanner than the last time you saw me.  This is actually the remnants of a sunburn received from laying in Central Park for too many hours with not enough sunscreen.  Kids, don’t forget your SPF…

Wearing: navy jacket by Club Monaco // multistripe oxford by Black Fleece
chino shorts by Lands’ End Canvas
// Dad’s belt/watch, bracelets from the flea
Similar: jacket, shirt, shorts

Hard to see, but around my neck is a tiny ship’s helm by Verameat:

Was very pleased to pick this up at Verameat’s East Village boutique on its opening day.  Designer Vera Balyura was a pleasure to meet, as well as Fred the Affenpinscher, the official mascot of Verameat. (And FYI, Fred is a girl.)  Drop by Verameat to view a pleasingly odd collection of handcrafted curiosities for neck, wrist, finger and ear.  If you’d like the ship’s helm, it’s available here in a variety of materials.  But perhaps you might prefer a hatchet loving centaur pirate, a hippo-shark eating a woman or some lion/octopus love?
