Outfit of the Month: Cruel Summer

By Jesse Brooks


This summer is already one like no other. Just because we are more Covid conscience doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the fun summer has to offer. Laying by the water is a form of relaxation we can get behind, and we figure why not dress up for the occasion?

This Johanna Ortiz ruffled swimsuit with matching wrap skirt and straw hat are one way to stay glam while soaking up some rays.  It’s feminine in all the right ways with its waist belt, playful print and delicate trim.

The accompanying pieces are sunning essentials, not to mention a chic way to accessorize. Like these woven Andrew Geller sandals and rattan Madewell tote beach bag.

To leave skin soft and glowing after a little responsible tanning, we love a splash of Anthropologie’s Mermaid oil.

No matter where you spend your sunny days, in a look like this you will definitely be making the best of a ‘Cruel Summer’.
