Many of you may be in the mindset that Labor Day brings summer to a close. Not so fast.

Indian summers can last into October or even November.

Although vacations have come and gone and it is time for back-to-school, I’m going to continue enjoying my endless summer. All you need to get in the mindset is the perfect beach attire.


The Find

I’ve found a cover-up at my favorite store for beach-y summer luxuries, Calypso. The “Adair” 100% linen dress ($150 at Calypso-celle.com) is delicately embroidered and can be drawn tight at the neckline and sleeves. Complement it with a pair of flat Tory Burch “Devin” thong sandals ($135 at Bloomingdales.com) and a pair of killer statement sunglasses.

In this case I’m sharing a pair of vintage folding Porsche aviators that I own and found for you at Net-a-Porter. I bought my pair three years ago and amazingly found them online today. They fold into a very small pouch and the gold-tone looks great with a tan (real or faux)! These glasses are also a treasure because they fit my ‘bridge-less’ Asian nose. If you are Asian you will know how hard it is to find over-sized sunglasses that fit!

Top off your look with a colorful canvas tote like the “Morning’s Call Tote” ($129.95 at Anthropologie.com) and a wide-brimmed straw hat to shade you from pesky UV rays. I found this 8″ wide sun braid floppy hat for only $24.99 at Marketworks.com. Little touches like lipgloss and jewelry will give you a polished look. The understated Me & Ro 10k multi disc necklace, ($790 at givingtreejewelry.com) will look pretty and delicate around your neck and the “Huge Lips Skinny Hips” lipgloss in Lychee Martini ($20 at Blissworld.com) will keep your lips plumped and shiny but not sticky. The gloss also contains Hoodia, an all-natural appetite suppressant to keep your summer figure looking trim until, say the time Thanksgiving rolls around.

    This reminds me of the get-up of a hippy, and it’s not my thing. (ipad)
