ONE PERFECT SUMMER OUTFIT

So, summer is here… actually is always here in Aruba, but for those who are waiting for the hottest and most fun time of the year, here’s so outfit I put together with Ralph Lauren. Let’s start with this beautiful sailboat print mercer shirt in green linen. It was love at first sight, it is a classic shirt but so vibrant and colorful, my eyes went directly to this showstopper the minute I was browsing around the store.  It is 100% linen, it has a convenient rounded patch pocket at the left chest and split back yoke with a box pleat it has, gives you a greater range of motion and makes it so confortable to wear, those are the details I love from this shirt. Taking in consideration the shirt has a very bright and eye catchy print I decided to pair it with a more toned down bottom, so I went for a more light blue bermuda short with an equally relaxed silhouette, made of cotton. It’s a perfect basic that you can pair with anything and everything, it is …

For the Caribbean Queens

At the beach, time is different. Time doesn’t move hour to hour but mood to moment. We live by the moment, plan by the tides and follow the sun. Vilebrequin women’s is a colorful and stylish collection of bikinis, board shorts, resort wear and accessories with Vilebrequin’s modern luxury aesthetic. What I found interesting and practical is that they sell the pieces separately, so you can choose a top from a size and then the bottom in the size that fits you best. How cool is that? Fabiola is wearing in the picture the Gingham seersucker top and the Gingham seersuck bottom. it’s a beautiful and very feminine bikini that is also comfortable and classic looking, to me it kinda has this pin-up kind of look that makes it so cool and timeless. Vilebrequin has many beautiful, fun and glamorous options for women, click here to browse their entire online catalogue and be the Caribbean Queen wherever you go!
