ModCloth Memorial Day Warm Weather

Wear this skirt for a recreational boat trip on the open sea, and you may just find a little slice of paradise. Constructed of a cotton-stretch material featuring royal blue and foam white yacht striping, this slim, form-fitting mini with an elasticated waist both conforms to your contours and allows you to sit back and let the wind carry you across the water in comfort. All you need is a dream, a white crew neck tee, wayfarer sunglasses, and canvas shoes for a tranquil look that's sure to catch the attention of the skipper.

    During the summers I lived in Boston, I spent a lot of time frolicking on the Charles River Esplanade. I strolled along in the cool of the shade, watching the snowy peaks of sailboats on the water. I picnicked during the Pops' free riverside symphonies. I laughed with friends while waiting for the fireworks to burst into the sky on July 4th. I wish I'd had this Dainty June shirt back then - it would have been the perfect thing to wear during any of those activities. I'd have kept cool beneath its semi-sheer, navy cotton as the bay breeze rippled its ruffle-daintied shoulders. I'd also have managed to channel upper crust Bostonian style with the bow tied at the neck and the yoked front, without losing my individuality, which would've been maintained gracefully by the left shoulder's four ship cutout buttons and the contrasting red stitching. I probably won't have the chance to wear this top on the Esplanade, but I can see plenty of other occasions that it will be perfect for. Worn over a skin tone tank tucked into a full skirt, and matched to a pair of cute kitten heels, this shirt will take me - or you! - from parks and paddle boats, to offices and outings, in everlasting elegance! -Hannah, Fashion Writer
