Is there anything more summery than this resort look? Even if you’re not jetsetting this year, CB2’s Acapulco chair and this swimsuit by Mara Hoffman turn the smallest backyard into a sanctuary (add an umbrella drink and a kiddie pool for good measure).(View comments)
We haven’t planned a 2013 seaside escape yet, but that’s not stopping me from dreaming of a new swimsuit in a pretty shade of cerulean. I’ve got my eye on this strapless, scarf-print version from J.Crew (and these yellow shorts to go with it).
Shop It: J.Crew tulle underwire // Miu Miu bow bandeau // J.Crew striped halter // Norma Kamali halter // Violet Lake bikini top and bottom // Tory Burch bikini top and bottom // J.Crew one-shoulder // J.Crew scarf print // J.Crew bikni top and bottom // J.Crew scalloped tank(View comments)
I only feel svelte enough for a bikini about 10% of the time and that’s only when the conditions are optimal: I ate well, exercised that week and kept away from the cocktails. For the other 90%, I rely on a one-piece suit with strategically placed ruching. This year, I’ve grown tired of my blend-into-the-background black suit and am looking for something much more vibrant.
