The Dog Days Are Over

Even though the weather outside is still sweltering, it makes me sad to know that with the advent August, summer is officially over. I'll use any tactic to squeeze in a few more poolside escapades, including wearing a bikini in lieu of underwear. It's a bizarre method, I realize, but if your friends are anything like mine you can never be too prepared for a night out.

1. Rachel by Rachel Roy, sleeveless Anjali dress - $99 $74.99
2. All Saints, Aztec bikini top - $75 $52.50
3. All Saints, Azetc bikini bottom - $75 $52.50
4. Forever 21, "nature elements" necklace - $1.50
5. Forever 21, round sunglasses - $5.80
6. Melissa, bow flip flops - $59
7. Kate Spade, Lawn Party half circle tote - $295 $147 

Lightweight, breathable dresses with a bit of structure will keep you from looking schlumpy even in 90° heat. A tribal print sequined bikini is exactly the kind of big reveal I want to make when I peel off my dress to jump into the pool. Of course, jumping into pools doesn't give a girl time to put her jewelry in a safe, dry place, so something like Forever 21's selection of baubles under $5 work perfectly for me.


  1. Haha I love your bikini as underwear suggestion. I always keep one in my purse as my friends also love the water. This past weekend I went out without my purse. I ended the night in a pool in MENS swim trunks that were about 5x too large. Needless to say it was an interesting night.
