3 Summer Must-Haves

Posted in Uncategorized on June 16, 2010 by amstylearchitect

I found these great collapsible flip flops  in the airport on my way to Costa Rica. They are  called pocket flops. They are super comfortable, eco-friendly folding flip flops!  If you like to pack light like me you they are perfect.

Floc Designs $22 (they come in a variety of styles and in a cute store bag)

Next up the beach bag and towel. Why not make it one? Try the MM6 Maison Martin Margiela Convertible Terry Beach Bag ($235)

With scorching temperatures you should certainly consider stylish hat to compliment your sunscreen. Try Charlotte Russe $10


The Coverup

Posted in Uncategorized on June 2, 2010 by amstylearchitect

We all know it’s bathing suit season. Some of us love it and some of us dread it. So you’ve packed your skimpy affairs to chill pool or oceanside but what have you packed to walk around the resort in those areas where being scantly clad is unexceptable? You still want to be cute …so what do you wear? When you’re looking for  your sexy cover up, here are two things to keep in mind:

It must be light  and it must be easy to pull on and off

Here are 3 suggestions:

This bright mesh knit number is great example being lightly covered up.

You can’t go wrong with white sheer—-it’s always clean and crisp

An Indian or Mediterranean cover up is very global nomad chic.

So what have we learned? Go for mesh, white sheer, and ethnic tunics…

Enjoy the Beach!
