GET THE LOOK Beach Chic (with Six Basics)


Just can’t help myself: saw this pic of Kate Moss vacationing off Ibiza, and being that I’m still in full summer mode (especially of the Mediterranean variety), it’s inevitable that I’d want to emulate. While we can’t all afford Goyard and Cartier, we can certainly put together a few basics to achieve the same effortless sand stroll look for our end-of-summer escapes…

Michael Stars blouse (also try: Joie’s Pinot blouse) / Tory Burch striped shorts (budget buy: Hot Kiss striped cut-offs) / Sam Edelman thong sandals / Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses / Michael Kors tank watch / Malene Birger tote (also try: Joie’s Kennedi tote)

Just so you know, I’ll probably be in autumn-denial for the rest of the month at the very least. (In my defense, we get our hottest days in September and well into October here in So Cal — so I will indulge!)
