Bathing Beauties

Why and I mean why has it taken me 6 years to write again......oh yeah, a 6 year old and 2 year old twins later (duh). Alas loves, I'm back. With summer quickly approaching, I have one thing on my mind...vacay! What's the one thing everyone needs before sticking your toes in the water?... the perfect swimmy of course. As I glide through every fashion site known to man...I have one question, where is the A$$? What happened to moderate, much less full coverage. Believe me, the last thing I want is a school marm, momma let herself go, duggar disaster bathing suit. No, that is quite the opposite of what i want. I simply want a flattering, functional (with the babes) and most importantly fashion forward choice.  After swimming through an ocean of options, here are a few of my faves...and baby, they got back!

get your kicks...

This summer I am chucking my taylors for the crisp, Italian brand, SUPERGA. As seen on the likes of MK and Ashley and Sienna Miller to name a few, these kicks are essential to every summer wardrobe. I simply adore a canvas sneaker with vintage cutoffs and dresses or to dial back a fussy chiffon. Sneak off and get yourself a pair or two or three or...LOVE!

leavin, on a jet plane...

Excuse me loves as I shake the the dust off my dinosaur of a laptop. It's taken me way too long to unpack and begin writing again, but alas I am back and ready for vacation. As most of you jet set or sail your way into complete paradise, it's most important to pack the essentials...because the last thing one wants to do on vacation is think, right?! Black out on vacation. Not because of too many poolside, peach bellini's, but with the perfect swimwear and maxi. Nothing screams bathing beauty more than a classicly flattering black bathing suit...I prefer a bandeau with jewels and a turban, but we'll get to the accessories in a bit. A floor grazing black maxi dress with gold or tribal statement jewels is effortless and polished for dinner by the sea. One should never peddle their cruiser without an amazing topper. I prefer a straw panama with a black band or (huge) floppy brim hat. Embrace the Margherita...missoni that is, with a turban....totally obsessed, with an oversized round shaped pair of sunnies, your fave heirloom locket, tiny gold bangles and straw market bag. Let us not forget a caftan cover-up and nude flippers for a stop in for ice cream before stepping into the sand or paruzing per-spi-casity (everyone deserves a mid-day treat on vaca).  Reveal the spf 15 glow you've worked on all day with a white slip dress, vintage wood jewels and a cognac gladiator. Ready. Jet. Go!

In Mint Condition...

Mint Condition, the most beautiful words a vintage maven can hear or read. In this instance, I am having a mint moment for the lovely pastel as whimsically displayed on the carousel of Louis Vuitton, and sashaying down the catwalks and cat-eye glasses of Rochas and Elie Saab. It is the "new" white canvas for jewels gallore! Mix the gummy flavor with white for a crisp and modern effect. Pick a mint silk tunic and pair with white or tobacco city sandals for a laid back feel while running errands without looking all zipped up like a 50's housewife. Skim the floor with an etherial maxi in the lady like hue...don't forget your pearls girls! In this case, vintage, white chunky beads, chain, celluloid, and stacking bangles are the bold statements of choice. Execute the colorway with white by pairing your fave silk blouse with a mint cluster or pendant necklace for a boho-eque vibe. Nothing makes a girl want to spring forward more than a freshly, starched pair of white skinnies. Pair them with a mint blouse or sweater for the perfect Marc Jacobs, just left the club effect...tennis club my loves! Find the perfect tint of mint and one will flawlessly accomplish a trend fave of spring 2012.

For my love of a hint of mint, L.
