Whether you are headed to a private villa in Ibiza, or off on on a boat in the Sea of Cortez (like me) here are some key pieces to make the sailing smooth.

1

By the end of summer I am little sick of bikinis. A maillot works both a swimsuit and a top when worn with a skirt or shorts.

A friend of mine gave out these AERIN Batik beauty bags as goodie bags at her wedding – they fit everything you need.

No point in taking your diamonds, but grab a little something in the summer vacation spirit like a necklace by Dezso.

The strong summer sun is a perfect excuse to wear a big straw hat.

Whenever I see my friends looking chic at the beach it turns out they are wearing something by Muzungu Sisters.

Take a blouse that does double duty as a beach cover up.

In addition to a pair of flip-flops, espadrilles are always essential. I love these Soludos.
