A Peaceful July Fourth in Lake Placid

Cancelled: Fireworks. Concerts. Theatre.

Not Cancelled: Mountains. Rivers. Family.


The good news is New York is not seeing a concerning upward trend in Covid-19 cases. Neverthless, we are all moved by the disappointment of our high school seniors who saw the end of their public school education in a way that was not what they expected.


Many vacation plans will be cancelled this summer, but there are places where sensible, social distancing vacations are still possible. One of these: Lake Placid, NY. The "big events" like the amazing firework display are cancelled, but you can't cancel the natural beauty of this town...

Swimsuits that Fit the Occasion

Elegant Strapless in White

A modest strapless in bright white is always right; but paired with a fun hat and a red kimono cover up, it's a perfect July 4 choice! Anne Cole Strapless Suit This is my favorite, go to suit for all occasions! It provides a secure and flattering fit. I love it under this adorable  red floral kimono from Maurices! Don't forget a hat to finish off the look and protect your skin! Mine is from a former Box of Style, but you can get a worthy substitute here: panama hat

The High Waist Bikini

The new high waist trend in bikinis make them a viable choice for those of us who prefer a more modest suit. Try one in a navy like this navy stripe bikini or this adorable retro white bikini from Target's summer collection. The fun shades and bag come from Fabfitfun and the statement earrings are from Box of Style! If you like the look as much as I do, check out this affordable option: Bohemian Earring Set available on Amazon!

Strapless and Scarlet

I have a penchant for strapless styles because they don't show tan lines and are elegant without showing too much cleavage. I fell in love with this one because of the vivid scarlet color and the fun back detailing. It's from Kona Sol and available at Target: Red Strapless Finish off the look with a hat, retro cat eye sunglasses that conjure up images of Marilyn Monroe, espadrille wedges and a white cover up !

One Shoulder Style

This navy one shoulder scalloped bikini is a solid choice for those who like the convenience of a two piece, but dont like to show too much skin. It looks great paired with this sarong from this summer's Box of Style

Kimono in Fun Red Print

When you are done at the beach, just throw that red floral kimono on under jeans and a white tank and head out to your family BBQ or socially responsible dinner outside!

Cute and Fun Romper

Going from the beach to lunch? Throw this adorable navy romper on over that strapless and enjoy an outdoor lunch! It can be worn on or off the shoulder and is as comfortable as it is cute!
