Be a Northeast Coast Breezy, Beach Babe

This fox of FoxyRoxy is stepping way out of her basic-black, edgy NYC comfort zone while preparing for a summer vacation to Boston and Maine with the boyfriend. I started thinking, "what do I think of when I think July 4th in historic Boston? What might inspire my looks when sailing, eating Lobster or strolling the quaint beaches in Maine?"

What came to mind: neutral tones, navy, sea glass, gold accents, and nautical touches. 
I set out to find enough pieces in the same color schemes so I can mix and match ALL of the below into a week of sexy and breezy looks. My apologies for including some looks that are not sold online, but perhaps they can be inspiration for you if you plan on spending some time on the east coat beaches.

So have fun checking out this summery mix, that will look easy and flirty no matter what you choose!
Navy/Coral Sailboat blouse, OldNavy, $20
Some tips for girls with thicker thighs: instead of shorts, try an A-line skirt. Also, cropped jean capris with wedges make you look leaner and sexier than the usual shorts. 

SUMMER MUST HAVE!! FINALLY, FoxyRoxy found oversized, Squared Cat-eye shade! Now girls with fuller, round faces can rock the hottest trend this season too!!
