Lifestyle: The Perfect Pool-less Pool Party

It’s here, it’s here! 90 degrees, clear blue skies and the best weather we’ve seen since late August of 2015. No matter if you’re in Los Angeles or New York, you are undoubtedly experiencing the best warm weather ever. So, “it’s a great day for a pool party,” you think to yourself or out loud to a group of friends. Just one small problem – you can’t all fit into the Soho pool house. The local pool is just way too crowded to try to cram in your friends and a couple of spritzers. And that friend with the pool? Out of town. What are you to do? Time for a pool-less pool party!

Bright Patterned One-Piece Bathing Suits You’ll Actually WANT To Wear!

Seriously. What the hell has happened to swimwear this season? More specifically the usually over 35 friendly one-piece bathing suit. While searching for flattering patterned one-piece swimsuits my eyes were assaulted by unflattering cut-outs, tacky mesh inserts and hippy-dippy macrame. I do NOT want a bathing suit that cuts out at the areas I don’t want exposed or one so low cut, my boobs could flop out and my belly button be exposed. A string leading from the bandeau top to a low-cut thong bottom constitute a one-piece. It’s a damn bikini with a string! Nor do I feel it’s appropriate for a women to wear a Baywatch cut Speedo with major side-boob that reads “Birthday Suit” or “On Fleek.” Has everyone gone mad?

Looks for Less: One Chic Caftan

Going to the beach with family and friends is a cherished tradition for many women. Whether it’s a fun-filled afternoon to get away from the busy atmosphere of the city or a week-long getaway to a tropical location, relaxing on the sand while enjoying a delicious, fruity drink never gets old. Of course, there are many fashionable ways to (safely!) soak up the sunshine. One idea is considering wearing a flattering, printed caftan.
