Recently, I realized that I’m in need of some summer sweaters to throw on at the beach or when the temperatures take a dip after the sun has gone down. So, when I spotted this black and white striped v-neck a few weeks ago, I knew it would be an ideal summer staple. It came in quite handy the other weekend when we ventured out to Fire Island. The weather was unseasonably cool so I wore this sweater along with my favorite canvas jacket (last seen here) on the ferry and for a walk later that day out to the famed Fire Island lighthouse. This weekend, we’re returning to Fire Island sans children and while I’ll miss the kids, I’m definitely looking forward to relaxing on the beach with a couple of magazines and a chilled drink.
