Summer on the Lake with Bridge & Burn

The past few weeks were wonderful, to say the least. Summer on the lake is always amazing, but this year it was the best yet. Perfect weather, the celebration of my thirty-first birthday, time with friends, gin and tonics and local brews, dinners on decks overlooking the sunset, paddles, long days of sunning and swimming, and my very first water ski.

I packed a few of Bridge & Burn's summer pieces into my bag: I can't get enough of this company's summer collection! I love the ease, comfort, and look of everything they've sent over for me to try. The versatility of these pieces, with their tomboyish edge, suit the lake (and me!) perfectly. Also...the morning we shot the first outfit was incredible. The fog was so thick you couldn't see across the bay, but slowly the sun began to burn off the moisture. Paddling out onto the lake was nothing short of magical. I miss our time on the water already...rising slowly, padding into the kitchen to make some coffee, watching the sun rise over the water with my hands wrapped around a warm mug, afternoon cocktails, time spent just being. We always leave so renewed and refreshed, individually and as a family. One day we hope to live on the water...can you see why?

These four items are all part of my thirty-seven piece capsule wardrobe, which I started back in June. I love how they work for summer. The lightweight and breezy Tayler dress has become a staple in my closet for warm nights spent barefoot with a beer, and the linen Market Trousers make me feel dressed up without being over the top. Sometimes I pair them with a black camisole for a night out. The Florence Leaf espadrilles are sweet slip ons that I loved having on the dock and the boat at the lake.
