Believe It or Nautical

These photos were taken at Cold Springs, NY--a little town on the Hudson about 70 miles from Manhattan.  It's got a gorgeous view of the river (a MUCH cleaner Hudson River than to what I'm used to) and the surrounding mountains.  You can grab some homemade ice cream and find a shady bench to people-watch on the dock.  And there is no shortage of vintage shops and clothing boutiques.  It's the perfect place to spend a relaxing Saturday.

--get the look--
For an effortless outfit I always gravitate towards dresses.  A simple striped maxi number is perfect for a beautiful weekend by the Hudson River.  It's a great choice if you want to look put together, but comfortable and cool.  Try pairing it with layered delicate jewelry to keep the focus on the dress. If your vertically challenged, like me, you could wear a small wedge to give you an extra inch.  Or you could just as easily tie an off-center knot along the hem line.
