The perfect white dress
I thought I found it last year, but I always felt a bit too formal in it. This year I'm trying to find a better balance, and deciding not to go completely white.
Strokes of genius dress $30 at Avon (not on website yet)
Antique look lace dress $15 at Ebay
Treasure of tortuga dress $49 at Ruche
I know when I go to the beach I will be wearing a cover-up that I likely wont take off. Still, each year I am compelled to hunt for a new suit. Once piece, of course.
Zac Posen for Target Low V one piece (yeah, it's sold out but I still want it) $35 at Target
Boy short one piece $40 at Delias
Undrest Zig Zag Swimsuit $80 (on sale from $198) at Urban Outfitters (also in black and white)
Tomorrow night is the season premier of Burn Notice, which became one of my favorite shows after I accidentally watched a marathon of every episode last summer. Fiona has some kick-ass style that in the back of my head I am always trying to emulate. When looking for shoes, I was trying to think of what Fi would want to slip her feet into this summer.
