Dreaming of summer . . .
Rest, relax, refresh, retreat, lounge, and gather — nothing says summer as much as entertaining on the backyard patio or lounging around the poolside. Summer recreation or relaxation doesn’t have to be a grand escape to an exotic destination. We can rethink our point of view about a summer escape to consider a staycation of resting, relaxing, refreshing, retreating, lounging, and gathering guest and company on the patio or around the poolside.
Backyard summer fun and entertaining can be effortless and chic, especially if the seasonal closet is fully stocked with warm-weather essentials for entertaining and playing. Think low maintenance pieces that are as relaxed as the season but pay-off in comfort and style. Keep it simple and casual all summer long. These are the ones to have for entertaining on the patio or lounging by the pool:
Patio: Striped Tees, Twill shorts, Printed maxis, Colored chinos, Safari jackets, Boho tunics, White jeans, Cropped pants, Gingham shirts, Eyelet Tops, Floral dresses, Pima tanks, Silk kimonos, Coin sandals, Assorted espadrilles, Metallic moccasins, Raffia shopper, and a Woven messenger
Pool: Flattering swimsuit, Alluring kaftan, Flirty sarong, Denim shorts, Linen shirt, High-low tee, Oversized tote bag, Cork sandals, Colorful flip-flops, Painted Toes, Large-rimmed sunglasses, Wide-brimmed hat, Waterproof makeup, and Sunscreen
Dress up summer in effortless outdoor style.
