Fun Friday- Fleet Week: Jessica Simpson Papaya Nautical Sandals


Jessica Simpson Papaya Nautical Platform Sandals

If you live in New York (or happened to catch that episode of Sex and the City), you’re familiar with the influx of friendly, gorgeous men in uniform known as Fleet Week, and since it’s a holiday weekend, you’re in the mood for fun (nautical naughtiness anyone?). You don’t have to rock red, white and blue, snag a sailor, though. Instead, step lively in a pair of striped heels in this season’s hottest hue, like the Papaya platform sandal in “sundown yacht stripe” by Jessica Simpson (available for $89 at The 5 inch heel adds just the right amount of “hey there, sailor,” and the 1.25 inch platform means you can dance the night away once you’ve lured your catch. The coy ankle strap also says you’re fun, but you might not be game for getting your timbers shivered.


Do Ask Please Tell

In celebration of the 25th annual Fleet Week and the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell” the mix masters at La Bottega at The Maritime Hotel concocted the Do Ask, Please Tell cocktail. Available from May 23-30, it’s a sweet, refreshing way to put the happy in your hour.


1 oz Stoli Peach
1 oz Amaretto DiSaranno
2 oz OJ
1 oz fresh lime juice


Shake all ingredients well and pour into a highball glass.  Garnish with a maraschino cherry.

*Remember the idea is to have the memory of your gorgeous face etched in their minds as they head back out to sea, not have your name written on the bathroom wall. That said, drink responsibly so you don’t do anything you’ll regret.
