All I can do these days is dream of nice warm places I can escape to...and all the amazing stuff I can wear! Tune in this week for features each day on the travel style-picks for different destinations: Miami, Hawaii, French Riviera, Hamptons and a Mediterranean Cruise!
This post is about what to do beforehand to get beach-ready!
I suggest that the first thing you do before heading on your sunny vacation is grab the lotion and an incredible new pair of shades. I am obsessed with designer shades, but I have found some incredible ones for $5 on the street too. As long as they look so glamorous on that you don't want to take them off, then you are set. I have cherry picked a few of my favorite pairs to inspire you - from classic glamour to funky, beachy colors:
|Tom Ford, "Miranda" $258 (my all time faves!)|
|Chanel, "Havana" $339|
|Emilio Pucci, Aqua Gradient, $360|
If you want to try out slick designer shades, but are having some sticker shock go immediately to www.avelle.com and RENT the hottest new couture accessories!
AGAIN, PLEASE CHECK BACK EACH DAY FOR HOLIDAY PACKING GUIDES TO FIT EVERY BODY AND RESORT STYLE!!
OK and now for a list of things you need to remember to get done before getting on that flight, aside from picking your best beachwear.
1. Build that base! Weather you like the tanning booth or spray tan, hit the tanning salon and banish that pasty, winter skin. Since I can tan easily, I am a fan of high pressure tanning beds. Just 1 or two 12-min. sessions and I have a nice glow. Spray tanning is a bit more tricky because you have to pick a shade that will work with your coloring. Spray tans do NOT have to make you Jersey-shore-orange - they actually have very light colors, perfect for people with fair, sensitive skin that freckles instead of tans. Ask you salon for help choosing a color and always go one shade lighter than you think, because you can always go in for one more coat if you need it.
2. Get ready for the swimsuit! Foxy Roxy is all about loving one's curves -no matter what size. As long as you are healthy and happy, who cares what the tag says?! That being said, if you want to look a bit more svelte before hitting the sand, I have a few tried and true ideas.
Now that you look your absolute foxiest, get ready for my destination style and swimwear guides this week!!
Damn girl. You look as hot as the Miami sun!
