Poppy Prints to Close Down Summer

It went by fast as it always does. Summer is just about over so we are hoping you find yourself at some ultimate show downs during the remaining weekends. Whether it’s at the local beach sprawled out on a terry bath towel with a small cooler of Coors, or at a backyard barbecue with a Slip & Slide, put on those boardshorts, button down and sunglasses because pretty soon they’ll be stashed until spring break.

Fun boardies like the St. Basil Boardshorts by Roark Revival or Island Flair Boardshort by Banks are sure to garner you compliments. Pair these shorts with equally outspoken shirts, and if they don’t match, that’s even better. As long as they obviously are un-matched, they actually go together. But if pairing unexpected partners isn’t your thing, go the poler opposite direction with a perfectly matched set, like the Atlas Jam set by Rhythm Livin’.

Whatever you choose, soak in the sun and the fun because in a very short time the daily wear will turn to daily wear for the (cold) weather.

The Absinth S/S Woven Shirt, by Imperial Motion, $59.95, has an in-your-face floral print that cannot be ignored.
