I am not one to spend $200 on a swimsuit, but I cannot stop obsessing over Mara Hoffman’s swimwear line. Her prints are insanely adorable and her shapes are so fun! Can I also say this model is gorgeous? This shoot is just beautiful. It makes me want to go back in time, vacation in Havana and fall in love with a young waiter/revolutionary played by Diego Luna. I could have gone with another film reference, but I don’t care if the world knows I’ve seen Dirty Dancing 2: Havana Nights. Twice.
Summer is coming! The temperature might be high 50′s, but the sun is out and they days are getting longer, which means summer is close! I have been obsessively planning out my summer activities. One activity I plan on participating in a lot, is going to the beach. Last year we went to the beach with my family only a few times, so this year I’m making an extra effort to go. San Francisco beaches, just don’t hold up. I’m actually a little terrified of them. So, I will be making a lot of trips to socal, solely to surf/paddleboard with my family. Which, I think is awesome! There is nothing that makes me happier than planning a beach day, especially on a Monday!
Below are essentials for any successful beach trip!
Also, nothing puts me in a better mood than River Deep – Mountain High. So, daydream about the beach, sing along to some Tina and enjoy your Monday.
I have this amazing chambray button up I bought last summer and it has become a wardrobe staple. Since sunshine isn’t too far away, I can’t stop thinking about all the pairing possibilities. I do know, I am one click away from being the proud owner of those red Nicole Miller shorts.

A few days ago I had the pleasure of attending the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibit with my dear friend Kim. I can’t even describe how amazing it was. It was gorgeous and cutting-edge, with a sly sense of humor. Talking mannequins are spread throughout the exhibit, they talk to you, they sing, they even talk to themselves in the mirror. They had a room dedicated to his corsets (Madonna cone bra included) and a room dedicated to his amazing film work, including City of Lost Children and The Fifth Element. It was just fantastic! I recommend it to Gaultier fans as well as people not as familiar with his work, it was such a great experience.
The exhibit is open until August 19, 2012 at the de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park
