So, as a new summer begins, new trends start up. One of the most popular swimwear trends we are seeing this summer is a surf trend. I guess surfing is leaving its little corner on the the West Coast and spreading up all the way to the East Coast. So people who are going to Nantucket or the Hamptons, make sure you purchase some surf swimwear. Also, high waisted bikini bottoms are very in right now- we'll be seeing a lot of those this summer. Fun, one piecers are very chic this summer as well.

Okay, so summer is right around the corner, for me it is a week away! I getting ready to say goodbye to my Vera Bradley school bag and to  say hello to a new Vineyard Vines tote. I am ready for a dip in the pool, lounging by the beach, and getting the perfect tan! Here's my advise for  the next trip to the beach, make a statement in a vintage swim suit at the pool with some bright, fun colored Ray-Bands. Fun, water proof sandals are always a tip of mine, and a nice sun hat, to shield your face from the sun when reading, lounging, or just wear it to show off you excellent style!

XOXO - I'm not Gossip Girl....

Deetal Mini Wrap Dress by Supertrash, 78 GBP
Suede gladiator sandals, $595
Ribbon Tie Beaded Bracelets, $4.80

So I'm not Lauren, but I am a fashion goddess.  Truly.  Like, I was actually voted that in school.  Anyway, I love clothing/accessories/things that make me look shallow with a deep, intense passion.  So here I am, mooching on Lauren's blog and infiltrating it with my own personal brand of vodka (as Danny Ocean would say).  Anyway, back to the outfit.  I was searching for the perfect wrap dress.  I didn't find it.  I did however find this little number.  The jersey fabric and the loose draping can skim a variety of figures and will look great on anyone.  The color will pop against a tan, and for the pale people (pale people unite!), the dress will glow on you.  A skinny belt will cinch the waist and give you a figure (whether or not you have one).  Layers of faux pearl bracelets add a chic little component to a more casual outfit.  Ray-Ban sunglasses are classic, plus unlike other sunglasses, they actually have UV protection.  Go figure.  Splurge on gorgeous suede gladiators in a deep navy, which will keep the outfit from turning into beige wallpaper.  A cream-colored Balenciaga bag is timeless and extraordinarily usefull.  Top it off with cameo earrings ... voila!   Like to hear more from me?  Comment on this and tell me so!
