Summer Solstice ~ Clo Intimo

portsmouth

Saturday was the summer solstice and I spent it visiting my partner, Shirley at her home in Portsmouth, NH. We really didn’t do much but still, the weekend did not disappoint: perfect weather, ocean sunsets, sailboats, lobster rolls and homemade ice cream.  It struck me that the very essence of the New England lifestyle is captured in the local vistas along this coastline.  This is the berthing ground of nautical inspiration.  Blue and white dominate the tone of life: blue denim, blue hydrangeas, blueberry patches, white linen, white daisies, and white picket fences.  Traveling home now towards NYC, I am reminded of many summers spent in this maritime wonderland, so tranquil in this season and so fierce come winter.  This dichotomy of serenity and severity are the very essence of this seafaring culture and define its character.

Culling through my notes, to find an intimate synergy, I zeroed in on the Prisma Collection from Clo Intimo.  A sexy blue and white bra and panty set, it makes a clean aquatic statement with just enough sass to insure the brand’s integrity.  Delivering to stores now, the full cup microfiber and lace underwire bra paired here with the matching cheeky, is available in 32-36, B-D cups. I know that it was designed and developed in Columbia, the heartland of South American Lingerie, but, as far as I am concerned, it fits right into New England’s mores.

SUMMER

Hydrangeas explode, grass spikes the soil
Sun scorches all, water crashes on shores
Ice destroyed, eyes beaten by bright rays
Heat everywhere, blue suffocates the sky
We love a violent summer ~Danika
