Last Saturday morning in South Beach was epically beautiful, as I attended the Tory Burch Swim presentation and breakfast a top Miami's Soho Beach House. So here's your Supper Model exclusive sneak peak of what's to come from Tory Burch! For next season think amazing geometric prints and large floral motifs mixed with paisley details and of course summer stripes. Blues and whites were the theme of the morning with flowing caftans and hooded ponchos dominating the coverup scene. The stars of the show? The amazing tassel covered sandals (pictured above) and an incredible dessert-themed bikini print (note: this cartoon-esc pattern is popping in almost every swimwear collection so snag your early) Both show stopping items are absolute must-haves for the season to come, and certain to be staples of the most fashionable wardrobes.

I kicked off Summer Swim Week on South Beach with a little sexy shoot featuring my favorite bohemian bikini brand Eberjey. Eberjey bikinis and intimates have a unique boho chic flare combined with a Bardot-esc sensibility: beautifully made patterns and fabrics with an itsy-bitsy St. Tropez cut and fit. The result is endlessly soft and comfortable separates, best for the beach babe who is classic, but truly confident with a barely-there statement bikini. I could not love Eberjey's things more, and am always surprised at the durability and long life of every suit and lingerie set I've purchased.
For this suit, the "wandering spirit," I wanted to highlight the delicate black and nude cutout pattern, so I opted for soft strappy black heels and an elongating cashmere sweater-coat-cardi-coat-coatigan that provided the perfect glamorous coverup as we went from beach shoot to a poolside cocktail presentation. Subtle, but big Bardot volume, beach waves with gold accessories keeps this ultra feminine. Before sunset, I accessorized with the always essential hat and shades (Florida living has quickly taught me the absolute need to always shield and protect your face from the sun). I love this jute textured fedora, and uber glam two tone chocolate shades, both from the fabulous Lilac and Lilies Boutique in Fort Lauderdale. Each give the look a dramatically fun and fashion-forward flare perfect for sitting poolside at any swim week event, summer party, or really any sun-filled Saturday...

I just returned home from a spectacular few days on South Beach taking in all the Miami Swim Week splendor! For the sweltering Saturday evening's shows I wore this body-con tube dress by Hale Bob and have totally fallen in love with the oh-so-on-point print and summer color palette. For the earlier Mohini Swim show presentation, I opted to pair the standout dress with cognac chunky platforms, a simple gold bracelet, and my standby cork clutch before making a quick change into serious fringe stilettos, a loose braid, and a vintage purple blazer for a more structured and strong take perfect for showing this evening look off at the W Hotel runway shows (an inside look and review of those coming soon to the blog).
Despite the summer southern Florida heat and humidity, I felt comfortable and cool in the light weight stretch neoprene fabric of the Malia dress. It really is the perfect piece to pack for any summer weekend, knowing that it doesn't take much more than a great heel to make the dress look like you pealed it straight from the swimwear catwalk.

It's rare that I become so obsessed with a single piece when it comes to summer fashion. It the hot summer months I change my outfit several times a day and run through fabrics at record pace, and seldom can I keep coming back to a piece in my wardrobe that is just endlessly perfect for so many occasions, needing very little to style and accessorize it. So when I came upon the "Selma" dress from Liz and Honey I couldn't believe how many times I kept checking up on the website to see if it was restocked and available!
For me the Selma dress has everything I love about this season's trends: the boho bell sleeves, the geometric print mixed with embroidered flowers. Throw in the perfect length, drape, and neckline, and a light durable fabric, it's practically perfect for the most down right sweltering of days and smallest of suitcases. It has a certain understated glamour that screams of day trips along the Amalfi coast, but can catch the approving eye of any sundown saloon goer at sunset cocktails. And my favorite part of course has to be the ultimate Affordable Editorial price:: this gorgeous summer staple is only $35... enough said.
This particular evening I was on my ways to girls night at our favorite local wine bar in West Palm Beach, and so platform heels seemed like a no brainer, but while in NYC last week I paired the dress with a black leather jacket and black gladiator sandals for a downtown spin on this down south gem.
