So, although it's cooling off around our local So Cal streets, that doesn't mean that our fave vacation spots aren't heating up. Palm Desert is a personal fave of mine-great for a quick but close family weekend away or a fun girls getaway. There are also quite a few friends (lucky ones at that!) heading to Mexico, Hawaii and beyond. So I thought why not post some of my fave warm weather style picks!.
First up, the bathing suit! As I mentioned before in this Instagram post, I'm a huge fan of a one piece...especially if you're beaching it with the kiddos. They can be comfortable and sexy all at the same time..and you don't have to worry about "popping out" at any moment. Here are a couple of samples of some cute suits at various price ranges that'll keep it flirty and fun! Click on pics for direct link to purchase:
For a two piece, I'm a big fan of either L*Space or Boys and Arrows. You can't go wrong. Both lines carry such cute suits with amazing prints. These sexy bathers are made at a high quality and will last many sunsets on into the future.
This first one (the chloe top) is a staple for me come summertime-these are amazing for us smaller chested folk-but there are many different styles to peruse online. All their suits come in a variety of colors as well as an array of bottoms to choose from. Another plus about this brand is you can mix and match it all! Love!
These next two from Boys and Arrows are so adorable but super sexy at the same time. These are a bit on the skimpy side but they sure are FUN! This is my particular fave cut but there are more to choose from online. And again, mixing and matching is fully accepted and encouraged!
The next necessity...the cover up! There are so many great ones out there but my all time faves come from Roberta Roller Rabbit- lucky for us locals here in Newport Beach, there's a store at Fashion Island...but ordering online is easy too. These can easily translate into an evening out..whether with a cute pair of cut offs and sandals, skinny jeans and a light jacket or a dress just belted, you wont' believe how much variety you'll get with these gems. They're worth every penny!
Lastly, come the shoes...my fave. In the past I may have written about the always reliable flip flop or sandal I've ran across at the local surf store but the sandal game has changed friends. I will never wear another pair of sandals in my life unless they are Beek. These. Are. Life. Changing.
A little background - I was lucky enough to meet Kenna, one of the founders of Beek, at a dinner party recently and we chit chatted over a glass of wine (or two!) about who we are, what we do and we quickly discovered our common thread (and love!) of fashion. She graciously invited me down to their work space (aka adorable office on Lido) to take a peek at these Beeks. Long story short, I haven't taken them off (weather permitting) since. They are just the best. And not to mention, the compliments I've received wearing them. Literally, stopped in my tracks to ask where I got these shoes. Like a friend recently said, "they almost teach you how to walk again". With their amazing built in arch and leather as luscious as it comes, they are like walking on air - heavenly and worth every penny. They're the kind of sandals that will truly last a lifetime and what I love about them most is they are designed with love and a lot of thought from two darling and oh so stylish women, Kenna and Birgit. I just can't say enough. Check out a few styles below. They are available at A'maree's for the local folks but you can also order online. And yes- you're welcome.
So, friends, enjoy your travels whether near or far, warmed up or chilled down this holiday season..and let me know if I can help you get ready for that oh so needed vacay! Bon Voyage!
