La Blanca Swimsuit, Elan Coverup, Valentino Flip Flops, Eric Javier’s Hat, Ray Ban Sunglasses,
Warm weather has arrived in the Pacific Northwest, and many of us are anticipating sunny vacations and long days lounging by the pool. To prep for these activities, a swimsuit and accessories refresh is in order. I’ve picked out a few of my favorite suits, coverups, sunnies, and skin products that will take you from vacationing this spring through the summer months.

Swimsuit: This black and white suit below is a nod to the cut-out trend. It’s comfortable, romantic, and covers the backside.
Wide Brim Hat: When I’m out in the sun, I always wear a hat with a large brim; this one adds a pop of color to my look and fits the bill.
Coverup: I have worn this coverup many times to the beach, pool, and lunch. It’s classic, versatile, and chic.
Tote: I love this whimsical beach tote by Marimekko, the Finnish brand’s famed poppy.
Sunglasses: Lastly, sunglasses are an accessory that will elevate your look. Stylist tip: always carry your sunglasses in their proper case, so you don’t lose track of them or bend the frame. You will wear them for years.
A Few More Tote Bags
Totes are helpful to carry your favorite book, sunglasses, sun lotion, water bottles, and snacks. Here are a few additional totes that will do the job.

Step out in style in a red one-piece swimsuit. I like the flattering ruching at the hip and the crisscrossed gathered neckline. Try a “3rd” piece and cover up in a versatile sarong. Tie at the hip or knot at the bustline for more coverage. The Valentino flip-flops elevate the overall look. They are classic, and I’ve been wearing mine for years.

Below are a few additional sunglasses that are perfect for spring and summer.

If you have a long waist, a two-piece suit might be a better fit for you than a 1-piece. Plus, it’s nice to be able to mix and match pieces and create multiple looks. Note: the blue bikini in the style board is reversible. The “3rd” piece coverup is the Tommy Bahama oversized blouse. Styling tip: try tieing the blouse at the waist and wear with shorts.
Everyone needs a towel for the pool and the beach. No worries, I’ve got you covered.
