My mantra for summer fashion:
Understated prep with a hippie vibe.
First thing, a bag. It needs to be big to stash beach essentials as well as a yummy trashy novel.J. Crew Straw Bag, $55
I am not the bikini type, so I am always looking for a one piece that doesn't scream, "I'm wearing a one piece bathing suit!" This is it.J. Crew Swimsuit, $75Abercrombie and Fitch Floral Tank, $30
J. Crew Shorts, $78
