how to dress like you summer in hyannis port

Hyannis Port

Yesterday James and I went to check out the Camarillo Outlets and it was a little overwhelming.  By far this was the biggest group of outlets I'd ever been to.  Going into J. Crew and Ralph Lauren (SWOON!) made me miss summer trips to Cape Cod and the idea of summer preppy style.  Being surrounded by all the preppiness yesterday reminded me of a couple of steadfast standards of this timeless style:

1. Stripes (all day, every day)
2. Primary colors (bold so people can see you through the blinding beach sun)
3. Braided/Straw/Rope details (seaside staples)
4. And you can never go wrong with a Cardigan (for cooler nights)

Striped sweater: H&M
Striped cardigan: H&M
Floppy straw hat: Topshop
Sunglasses: Forever 21
Ruffled Tank: Old Navy
Earrings: Modcloth
Braided belt: Forever 21
Navy shorts: Polo Jeans Ralph Lauren
Red shoes: TOMS
Raffia tote: Mar Y Sol
