It's that time of year that I start dreaming of a warm get-away. Obviously, such dreams include new beach cover-ups, new sandals and the latest over-sized sunglasses. What else? Fabby beach bags, dresses for dinner, lovely lounge wear, all the apres-swim one could envision would be needed while on holiday.
Well, one need look no further than Tory Burch's new Resort collection for 2013 to help make all your beach holiday dreams come true!
Alas, they are indeed dreams because I will not be spending $300 on a wonderful pom-pom cuff and adorable $400 pom-pom beach bag (yet). Nonetheless, the collection is inspired and fits perfectly with my renewed desire to surround myself with things less-expected, less-ordinary. And if history is any indication, in a millisecond these items will be copied downstream and available to those of us who are not Penthouse Princesses but instead Modern Warrior Mommies. And I, for one, cannot wait!
But why wait when you could make your own pom-pom necklace right now! Depending on your textile choices, it's even appropriate for non-beach days and city wear. We Mommies are crafty. Even better - it's chic, fab, cheap and you'll have major bragging rights when it's done. Love it!
