Get the Look: Summertime Chic

Get the Look: Summertime Chic

If you’re Beachy Keen this summer, headed for a sand and surf paradise (or just wishing for one) this is the look for you. It pairs Patone’s popping summer color, Celosia Orange, with watery hues of Swiss topaz, teal and green.

Nothing says comfortable has to look sloppy. This outfit seamlessly marries style with comfort. You’re almost guaranteed to feel like a goddess in this high-low maxi dress from Mod Cloth. Pair it with leather gladiator sandals by Ash Mani and you’ll look like a goddess too. Take a closer peek and you’ll notice golden cone studs dot the top of the T-straps. I think these add a delightfully unexpected toughness to otherwise feminine footwear.

This outfit can easily transition from surf and sand to beachside resort with my Swiss Topaz Blue Swarovski Crystal collection. It includes a sparkling pendant necklace, earrings and bracelet, all accented with shining Italian sterling silver.

On the go? Tote your latest summer novel or magazine in this canvas Rebecca Minkoff bag. I love how the bold teal stripes and leather handles are accented with shiny metal studs and hardware.

While you’re at it, toss in Essie’s “Turquoise and Caicos” for a beachside mani-pedi. As you catch up on the latest runway trends, and possibly sip a mai tai, you’ll want to protect your pretty face from the aging rays of the sun. A wide-brim natural straw hat, like this one from Wet Seal, will do the trick. Last but not least, protect those peepers with Ray Ban mirrored aviators that are sure to make you look and feel eternally cool.
