sunshine state

This morning I was talking with a friend about her upcoming trip to Mexico and she asked me what she should pack for her trip. (Um, pack me?) For those of you who are about to jet off to sunny climes, here are the newest, cutest poolside-perfect pieces I'd bring: these about-to-sell-out lace-up K Jacques sandals (next summer's must-have!) or this similar-looking Isabel Marant pair; several statement one-piece swimsuits such as this crochet She Made Me (pictured above) and this halter-style Acacia; along with a few stay-on, standout bikinis by Lisa Marie Fernandez (so chic!), Mikoh (the back is almost better than the front!) and Topshop (love the scalloped edges and stripes). I also love this crochet bralette bikini. I'd fill up this canvas Tory Burch beach bag with books I'm dying to read like Big Little Lies, All the Light We Cannot See, and Not That Kind of Girl. And I'd happily slip into any of these effortlessly glam cover-ups by Love Sam, Vix, Shop Latitude, Figue, Equipment, and Lotta Stensson. For evenings out, I'd bring a range of options from this sea breeze-proof Maiyet sweater to this raffia-trimmed vibrant Gypset mini to this Cosmo-ready silk chiffon Tamara Mellon jumpsuit to this flirty off-the-shoulder Clover Canyon. P.S. I'd also take the body, above, if I could!

That crochet one piece above is exactly what I need for Key West in March. How do you pick out literally the perfect pieces? SO thankful for your blog!

Marlien, in your opinion, how old is too old for a woman to wear a bikini?
