There are two things I collect fashion-wise. Bathing suits, and sunglasses. I don’t mind paying extra for either, since I pull my collections out every summer and relish picking out which will be the stars for that season. I have no problem changing suits four times a day, which is hilarious since I am super low maintenance when it comes to my day-to-day wardrobe.
All bets are off at the beach though. I often style myself with head scarves, sunnies, layers of necklaces or big earrings. A peachy cream blush, or golden bronzer adorn my face, or I go straight for a cream to powder summer shadow like this one from YSL. Once you put this stuff on, it stays for the day. The color I prefer when wearing most of my neutral suits is a lovely green called “Golden Fern”. (“Copper Brown” shown in the picture, is also nice.)
And for nails, who doesn’t love a fun color for the summer?
I digress….Back to suits and sunnies. So as summer rolls into full swing, I am dreaming about an invite or two to the beach. I think about what kind of bikini feels right, right now? As I look around at all of the swimwear offerings, I discover the talented swimwear designer Tara Matthews. I instantly know that it is time for me to channel a Bond girl in this gorgeous pink number, (which also comes with an extra set of ties in orange if you feel like swapping out.)
Bond girl Ursula Andress:
My sunnies of choice this season? Tom Ford cat eyes of course…
To get you in the mood, I’ll leave you with the James Bond theme, conducted by the late John Barry.
