Poolside: My Go-to Waterfront Outfit


wear to the pool

If you caught a glimpse of me out by the pool in San Diego at BlogHer’11, you may have already seen this outfit… and I wore it again over the weekend in Santa Monica with the husband. It’s an easy and {what I think} adorable poolside or beachfront ensemble that I just throw on for such an occasion.

Here’s why: I LOVE this silk tunic but it’s REALLY short… too short to wear as a dress {unless you’re 20} but works as a bikini cover up swimmingly {you like that pun? ;} I think I got it on GILT and it’s by Tucker. My favorite summer slip on Abarcas again, Kooba “Jonnie” bag for toting all my magazines, Tom Ford cat eyes and a straw fedora. Easy. Cute. Done. Great for poolside drinks at the bar at dusk after as well.

Hello sand. Hello sea.

    I have to say – I was pretty impressed! Can this man do no wrong?! Not only did he pretty much single-handedly turn Gucci from a failing business into a multi-billion dollar making fashion house, and then go on to head his own hugely successful brand; but now he directs films pretty well too! A Single Man has a touching story which is delicately approached leaving you both intrigued and.
