Isabel Marant and LoveShackFancy ruffled mini skirts are pretty and playful and easy to pair with Golden Goose Sneakers for the day or the Aquazzura platform for the evening.

For simple elegance, globetrotter Ulla Johnson who is ever-inspired by her love for global style, makes some of my favorite dresses and sweaters. You can wear the dresses day or night and throw on a sweater in the evening for an extra layer.

The Jerome Dreyfuss chain and leather shoulder strap bag is a classic, effortless style.

One of the best staples you can pack is Nilli Lotan buttoned down shirts, perfect for the city, but a sophisticated, casual piece for a coastal vacation.

Zimmerman bathing suits and cover-ups for beach days and poolside dates, add a bit of glamour on the water.

Gigi Clozeau’s delicate necklaces can stay on day and night, with your swimsuit to your dresses. Sometimes I’ll just wear one, but I love layering them, too.

I really like the special detail on this hand-woven basket bag and it makes a really nice bag for the beach, lunch, and shopping.
