What have your summer plans looked like so far? I have to be honest, aside from the time spent in the air, on set or running from one place to another, a majority of my time is luckily spent at the beach, on the boat, or poolside. I’m confident that many of you could agree with me that dressing for the casual occasion proves to be unexpectedly challenging. Don’t worry; I’ve got your back (or your swim shorts!).
The nice part is, apart from your bathing suit, you don’t have to worry about anything else – no shirt, no problem! Some people prefer accessorizing their look with trendy bracelets, Birkenstock sandals/flip flops, or even a cool hat. Believe it or not, I like to keep it extremely simple – and suffice to just a swim trunk. I say the simpler the better when it comes to sporty summer looks, we don’t need much to brighten our day and suit up for a perfect playful ‘rendezvous’ at the ‘playa.’
Sounds SO simple, right? It’s not. I try to always find fun colors, graphic prints and of course shapes that flatter and suit my body/style – which you should, too. This often means sitting in your local shopping mall for hours, but after all, it’s worth the time and effort to kick it in the sand in style.
