Alluring ikat in playful hot pink, tropical tangerine and lively lime green cavort against a backdrop of natural raffia, evoking the bohemian chic of the tiny surfer’s haven on Costa Rica’s Pacific coast.  Reversible liner in sapphire and ivory ikat and coordinating crosshatch trim team up to inspire dreams of eternal summer.

Here’s what I’d bring along for a boho beach getaway:

1.  Grassland Melange Necklace

2.  Sallins Fringe Trim Linen Poncho

3.  Dip Dye Straw Panama Hat in Denim

4.  Essie Nail Polish in Strut Your Stuff

5.  Denim Shorts

6.  Ocean Breeze Bikini Top and Bottom in Mandarin Red

7.  Georgica Jelly Sandal in Gold

Close Up Madison Ave

Don’t let the petite purse-sized Fiona Dome fool you — she can pack a full face! I use this bag for days I need to carry everything and sometimes just to carry around 10 lipsticks (life of a beauty girl). Right now, I’ve got the sleek and sparkly Madison Ave pattern filled with my favorite complexion brightening beauty products.  With the colder air creeping in, Jouer’s Anti-Aging Moisture Primer is always a first step before I buff on Kjaer Weis Foundation. It’s like a drink of water for the face! For any dark spots or redness, I tap on MAC Matchmaster Concealer which adapts precisely to your skin tone. A sweep of Bobbi Brown mauvey ‘Telluride’ bronzer on cheeks and La Bella Figura Lisette La Coquette lip tint gives me some much needed color.  I have blue eyes and the rosy brown NARS Dolomites eyeshadow duo makes them pop. A swipe of Benefit They’re Real eyeliner and few coats of L’Oreal Butterfly Mascara and I’m ready to take on the day.
