You’ve lived and traveled all over the world. What is your favorite coastal locale?
Panama–Isla Grande beach. Amazing clear water, underdeveloped beach shacks, and local pineapple mixed drinks.
Um, I’m about to get on a plane right now. Speaking of drinks, what is your cocktail of choice?
Starfruit and coconut margarita on the rocks.
I’m a Ray-Ban gal myself. So, how do you pull off “resort wear” in a city that’s NOT by the water (ahem, Atlanta) without looking stupid?
I love to pair platforms with the Malay romper or booties with the Isla Verde mini dress. Or throw on a baseball cap and wedge sneakers with the Angelfish pants and a tank. The Monsoon maxi is so easy to wear at the beach and in the city.
Well, what do you know, I happen to own the fab Malay Romper ($115) and was thinking it would pair perfectly with platform wedges.
(PS, I don’t know how you fashion bloggers do it. I could barely keep a straight face long enough to “model” for these pics in Everything But Water.)
What are some of your favorite pieces in this season’s collection? Any you’ve found to be EXTRA flattering on women?
Bocas swimsuit–flattering for gals with boobs or flat-chested. And the high-waist bottom hides the little tummy pouch. Juju bikini–the embroidered band under the bust adds a little something special and accentuates the upper body, and the low rider string bikini elongates your body.
