Get Beach-Ready With This Ardsley Resident’s Colorful Resort Wear
"Mom and Westchester resident Sara Annapolen creates Sara Joy, a resort-wear line inspired by her multicolored artwork.
Whether you’re beach-bound or not, elevate your summer wardrobe with cheerful and vibrant accessories by Ardsley resident Sara Annapolen. Her resort-wear line, Sara Joy, features caftans, sarongs, scarves, and hair accessories in bold colors and patterns. Annapolen says her creativity intensified during her pregnancies and she felt grounded by art during her post-partum experiences. “The shift into motherhood is what energized me to launch my own label — a lifelong dream.” Each piece in the collection is inspired by her original artwork; prints include patterns from watercolor paintings and woven paper projects. Sara Joy products are manufactured in small quantities to promote a feeling of uniqueness while fulfilling Annapolen’s mission to operate a zero-waste business, as she repurposes waste fabric into new products.
