Sailing Style in the City

 Ah yes, Memorial Day Weekend heralds the beginning of summer.  In New York City, the summers mean outdoor cultural events, the transition from black to bright colors in fashion and lots of cocktail filled soirees.

My fellow Glam bloggers and I enjoyed a grey, but delightful day cruising the Hudson River and snapping patriotic photos of Lady Liberty (appropriate for the upcoming holiday, no?)

When you put a bunch of fashion bloggers on a boat in warm weather, you get to preview the best of summer goodies.  While I love hitting the beach at Montauk, I am a target for sunburns and wrinkles.  I was happy to try out Hawaiian Tropic's new Silk Hydration Lotion with 50 SPF.  While Hubby thinks it's excessive (he's fine with 12 SPF) the 50 is perfect for me.  Greasy sunscreens irritate my skin, but I was happy to find that this one left my skin soft (probably the shea butter) and did not feel oily at all.

While I am guilty of wearing a grey summer dress, my colleagues from Tineey, Grease and Glamour, Wanderlust and Haute Mimi were wearing some fabulous bright prints.

I did manage to get some pop color into my outfit.  The bloggers were treated to specs from     .  Everyone wore very cute heels on board.  After 2 1/2 hours of waves though, everyone was grateful for the comfortable flip flops from Sanuk.  The sun did come out in spots and I Ski sunglasses provided protection.

Lucky us, we also left the boat with some goodies to battle the hot humid NYC summer...Thank you Fekkai, Goody Hair, OPI, Tarte and Urban Decay for keeping us pretty.
