I love a good story of origins—and South Moon Under’s 1960s east coast surf-shop turned upscale retailer really fits the bill! To shamelessly celebrate my debut as a contributing blogger to the South Moon Under blog (click through for some nail polish chit-chat), I thought it would be appropriate to highlight some of my favorite SMU picks for summer.
Spring is barely upon us, but by the time you pack up your winter clothes and book the vacation, it’s a short trip from “highs in the lower sixties” to summerwear. And with SMU’s newest swimsuit collection, it might as well be June! I applaud the return of the one-piece to the pool-side scene, and my biggest temptation as summer approaches is sure to be this Trina Turk suit. With its vibrant print and asymmetrical continuing neckline, it makes a worthy centerpiece for any warm-weather ensemble. Throw on a simple coverup, a wide-brimmed hat and some sassy wedges to make your look resort-appropriate, or add a pair of shades and a good book to hit the lounge chair. With this statement piece, you really can’t go wrong.
