A Suit To Lighten Your Load

If you always end up paying the minimum $50 fee for extra luggage, then you’ll love swim suits that can double as shirts for a poolside brunch. The best way to guarantee you don’t forget your suit is to incorporate it in your getaway wardrobe. Here are my top picks for bathing suits to prance around on land or sea:

Swim

Lulus.com, Mink Pink, $133

Swim2

Shopbop.com, Lisa Marie Fernandez, $390

Swim3

Bloomingdales, BLEU Rod Beattie, $129

Mad Style

With the start of Mad Men’s Sixth Season, I’ve been inspired to highlight some very chic retro fashions. Just take a peek at Banana Republic’s annual collection featuring boxy shells, geometric print dresses, and gingham capris. Wrap a silk scarf around your head for a easy to manage mod do that keeps all pretty faces intriguing and protected from the sun.
