Ship to Shore

As the northern hemisphere endures the blistery winter weather, our friends in the land down under are enjoying their summer.

While it may be hard, try and curb your jealousy and soak in the sun vicariously with blogger Charlotte Bridgeman of Winston & Willow as she heads out of Melbourne to the Mornington Peninsula and one of her favorite beaches, Mt. Martha.

This beautiful shoreline is marked with colorful, ocean-facing beach huts to give the setting an air of whimsy. To match the vibrant setting, Charlotte packed her beach day essentials in her equally-vivid Vince Camuto Janet Drawstring tote, “As soon as I saw this bag, I knew it would be the perfect bag to fit in all of my summer essentials.” 

Complementing the sporty-chic bag, Charlotte donned a retro-inspired bikini with high-waisted bottoms, all complete with funky cut-outs, which stood out even more against its surrounding brilliant colors. The result is a wholly fresh take on a vintage look.

Taking a cue from her vintage look, Charlotte packed up a timeless Parisian picnic for her day at the beach, “Who can say no to yummy cheese, watermelon and a glass of bubbly on the beach Certainly not us, so pour us a flute and we’ll be on the next flight to Oz!
