Every summer for the past eight years, I’ve spent at least two good weeks on a small island near Maine called Northeast Harbor. Surrounded by the deep blue Atlantic Ocean and beautiful Acadia National Park, summer hours can be spent on tennis courts, hiking trails or boat trips; evening cocktail parties on your neighbor’s porch, or as Mainers likes to call it Like “Porch Breakers”. There is something about the seaside in summer that, for me, inspires serious tailoring, especially when it comes to nautical fashion. From luscious sailor shorts to lace-up espadrille sandals and crisp linens, I love mixing marine-inspired pieces with my usual vacation wardrobe staples—think straw totes, one-piece dresses, and if You know me, then you and I know I’ll always have a coat or two packed.

My first few days in Maine this summer were working from home, which meant my after-get off work active clothing had to be up to par. On day one, I started strong with Matthew Bruch’s linen camisole top paired with a plaid midi skirt. I created this look with my summer sandals, wedge espadrilles from Castañer, and tortoiseshell sunglasses from The Attico x Linda Farrow. I spent the second night at the pier, wearing an embroidered bodice and skirt by Charo Ruiz Ibiza, watching ships go by. In keeping with the theme, I finished the look with a pair of funky fisherman sandals. Maine days are usually packed and very active, so on the third day after get off work, I went to the tennis court in tennis white provided by Alo Yoga. On day four, a pair of vintage red sailor shorts was the centerpiece of my outfit—small details including the anchors printed on the buttons. Finally, on day five, I dressed up for a dear friend’s wedding with the help of Johanna Ortiz and Bottega Veneta.

) Below, here are five nautical fashion outfits I wore for a week on an island near Maine. After all, a special place needs a special wardrobe.

Day 2

Charo Ruiz Ibiza is a brand I recently discovered for his summer. I love their frilly, feminine dresses and matching outfits, like this embroidered bodice and midi skirt. After spending an evening on the marina watching sailboats go by, I styled this look with a pair of brown fisherman sandals. Of course, I have to stick to the theme. To keep my belongings safe from any rough waters, I store them in a shoulder bag with cord detailing, like this one from Staud.

Day 3

I am in the third Playing in tennis clothes, courtesy of Alo Yoga&#x;s ‘Charmed’ tennis skirt and Superga sneakers. I took the racket to the court in a green and white tennis bag, and after the game I wore a Tory Burch retro sportswear-inspired sweater. Tip: Summers in New England cool off noticeably when the sun goes down, so be sure to have a piece or two of cashmere on hand.
