I just got back from a relaxing and very sunshine-filled vacation to Florida and the Bahamas, and while New York weather isn’t quite cooperating, I still have poolside lounging on my mind. I’m waiting for the weather up here to catch up to what I just left, and while it’s a bit chilly and rainy outside as I write this, I’m closing my eyes and taking myself back to the tropics. I think we underestimate how important a great coverup is when it comes to warm-weather lounging, and if you are not just looking to splash around in the pool but make a fashion statement, you need the perfect bag to pair it with.
I adore Melissa Odabash for her swimsuits and beachwear – they are always trendy and wearable. And when it comes to finding a great bag to carry with this chic coverup, I went straight for Valentino. Yes, this bag is small but it is super chic, and I’m slowly falling in love with the idea of see-through bags. With every Valentino touch we’ve come to know and love, the Valentino The Rockstud Studded Perspex Clutch will show off your money, lipstick, room key, and phone through the clear perspex body, which is adorned with studs. When it comes to the coverup, white always makes your tan look better, and this Melissa Odabash Laura Embroidered Voile Dress adds the right touch of sea-blue. Hit the pool or beach with this perfect pair and you will be sure to make a fashion statement.
