Hello Friends~ I hope everyone is having a terrific week. It’s finally stopped raining here, the sun is blazing, and I couldn’t be more excited! I am getting back into the swing of things over here after a lovely vacation and starting to get ready for Swim Week. Aah yes, the annual gathering here on South Beach of all the latest and greatest in the resort-wear & swimwear industry is upon us the weekend of July 22.
I can’t wait to share what shows I’ll be attending this year! In honor of my favorite week of the summer, I’m rounding up some of my top picks for your summer vacay. From chic cover-ups, to sexy one-pieces to glam hats worthy of the French Riviera, here are a few pieces I’m craving for this sultry summer. 6 Shore Road is my favorite, and I’ve had the honor of seeing Pooja’s show the past four years. Her feminine, floral patterns and gorgeous maxis are always a staple in my summer (and year-round) poolside wardrobe.
Maison Du Maillot is one of my favorite Twitter “friends” and I am always re-tweeting the cute summer essentials they are always posting. (Follow them here!) They sell 9 Seed , which is another favorite go-to brand for my summer maxis. Their lightweight fabrics and solid colors are easy & breezy and easily paired with a short kimono or long duster cover-up. Maison Du Maillot also sells top brands such as Tori Praver, Mara Hoffman and L*Space.
Check out their super cute website today~ (Bonus: Free Worldwide Shipping!) I just ordered those Mara Hoffman pants- I think I was inspired by the fabulous palazzo pants Rena Sofer has been sporting this summer. (If you watch B&B, you definitely get this reference).
I hope everyone is staying cool and having a wonderful summer! Lots of love~ xo, J~
