Bikini season is coming up so I thought I would try on some of my favorite bikinis. I have a lot of bikinis by ViX, which is one of my favorite bikini brands. I love the aqua green color of this one and the tassel and bead detailing in the contrasting purple color. I paired it with some beach accessories, including this gold mesh bangle and some malachite hoop earrings. On my feet are one of my coolest pairs of shoes. The neon colorblocking on these reminds of the late eighties and early nineties. Are you guys ready to hit the beach?

Besides the knit Erin Wasson X RVCA romper I snagged a couple posts ago, I also managed to grab these knit M Missoni Hot Pants that had been on my Shopbop wish list for way too long. As soon as they got marked down to 30% off I snagged them and I had to resist getting them in the black color as well. Something new always comes along so no need for doubles on the knitwear, right? Their made in Italy label more than exceeded my expectations and might even extend my love for Italian goods beyond footwear. They are beautiful, thick, and well made shorts. They are also very short, but it was 97 degrees when these photos were taken so it was all explainable. I wanted to keep the attention on the shorts so I pulled out one of my sheer KAIN Label pocket tanks and haphazardly tucked it into the knit shorts. I am on a roll with the Cynthia Vincent footwear, all of which I acquired on Gilt Group. Gilt is definitely a guilty pleasure of mine. These wedges have been seen on many celebs including Vanessa Hudgens and Kristin Cavallari. I like that they just have one easy zipper down the center and I don't have to mess around with the buckles. This is one of my favorite gold bangles by DANNIJO. I have some strange addiction to anything mesh and must watch myself because I will buy the same item in different form over and over. These earrings have been around the world. I take them on every Caribbean vacation we go on and they always seem to fill the status quo for each island-y dress I wear. In other news, I think the pizza place we used to order from is going to go out of business because we are now making homemade tomato pesto pizzas and loving every minute of it.
