Cape Cod, MA

Ok, we’ve all been there, we've ordered that trendy swimsuit that we LOVE but quickly grow tired of after just a few months. You know, those over-priced, neon colored, never-gonna-wear-next-year styles? I am a sucker for those. And while it's always fun to try on the flavor of the year, I am now trying to grab pieces that are good investments—meaning they won’t feel old after just one season.

This one-piece from Solid & Striped is a true classic. With a 1950's feel, high-waist and backside, it manages to pull off a look that's both timeless and totally flattering. It's a swimsuit that would be perfect for a trip to Cape Cod (where I wore it here), Europe and even your neighbors pool party. It's safe to say this one won't be going out of style anytime soon. FINALLY! I found a keeper.

Soak Up the Summer

Santa Monica, CA

Summer may be coming to a close, but the water’s still warm, which means there’s a little more time to don all your favorite swimsuits. But if you’re like me, and you’ve been wearing the same rotation all season, it may be time for a little last-minute refresh. To mix things up, I grabbed this classic one-piece from Victoria’s Secret. With sales up to 70% off—this deal is just too good to miss out on.  Check out the entire SALE right here and end the season strong.

Summer Uniform

September 1, 2015

Santa Monica, CA

Summer is quickly coming to a close, but with the continuation of sky-high temps, a sudden wardrobe revamp would seem silly.  For this transitional time, I always like to keep things easy and stick to basic, cross-seasonal pieces. This bouncy trapeze dress is just that.  I snagged it a couple of weeks ago and I knew it would be perfect for both summer and fall.  Great for the office or an afternoon brunch with friends (which is where I wore it here) you can easily swap out my summery wedges and lace fedora for a brimmed hat and fall booties.  It’s the perfect canvas dress and I’ve been living in it the past couple of weeks. I just need to get my hands on a few more.  What’s your late-summer uniform? Check out more of my favorites at the end of this post.
