California Dreaming

I'm pining like Bella for Edward in this June gloom, only my craving is for hot SoCal beaches.  Since this girl can only daydream about heading to sunny shores, let's do some virtual shopping and pretend we have no budget.

First, a reversible Missoni bikini to match my limited edition San Pellegrino.  By the way, the disclaimer on net-a-porter.com recommends not getting the bikini wet. Click details if you go there. Where are my high heels?!

Just joking.  I love espadrille wedges for lift without being tacky.  Christian Louboutin makes these incredible shoes with a little bow hitting the middle of your foot.  This woven Fendi bag charmed me with the shoulder strap, plus it works great at the beach and for shopping.

I love a bright print and recently discovered Milly.  There's a Pucci-esque style to this brand, and while I wouldn't say it's inexpensive, it's a fraction of Pucci's price.  I love Milly's cover up and the folded up fabric to the right?  Those aren't pillowcases.  It's a beach blanket with detachable pillow.  Dying!

How about a pair of Damien Hirst chairs to help us relax and watch the sea?  This gorgeous Rachel Zoe cuff is easy to unclasp before sprinting into the sea, or shall I say, wading your ankles in the water.  Don't want to get our bikini wet, do we?

I require an umbrella at the beach.  I can only lay in the sun for about an hour before I get overheated.  Williams Sonoma makes an umbrella in classic canvas and these Alexander McQueen shades have the most subtle and delightful lift in the upper corners.

Stay tuned for my next post.  I'll do all of these looks for less!

By the way, can we start a new trend?  The headband sweatband style is over.  Please wear it the classic way.  Your forehead pores will thank you.
