Sun, Surf, Sand and Bikini Ready with TheFind!


Whether you are headed for Palm Beach, Laguna Beach or Waikiki, your fun in the sun will need some advanced planning. For one - do you have a bikini that fits? Perhaps it is time to go bikini shopping! Try on a blue-hued bikini that will catch their attention and coordinate with the rest of your sun-worshiping attire. We love Diane von Furstenberg's string bikini top and briefs ($95 and $90 at Net-a-Porter). DVF is the queen of glam, get your best bikini on with this abstract blue hued animal-print bikini and matching briefs. Cover up with a teal-tone Lotta Stensson "Best Dress" draped jersey dress ($135 at Net-a-Porter) to wear post-poolside or at evening cocktails. And how adorable is the Diane von Furstenberg Tropical Leopard Beach Tote ($75.00 at Shopbop)? Yes, there is a definite theme here, it will pull you look together in a snap! The leopard-print coated-canvas tote is embellished with a 'Diane' signature across the front. Don't forget to shade your self from the sun in ChloƩ's eye-catching Blue Tamaris aviator sunglasses ($295 at Net-a-Porter). The silver toned aviators are a classic shape with gray lenses and blue leather accents on the arms and bridge. Wrap your perfectly pedicured toes in a pair of classic Tapeet Chain T-bar sandals ($375 at Net-a-Porter). These chain link sandals are flat and perfect for a night with in town when paired with the Lotta Stensson jersey dress. Or wear with sun dresses and shorts when you feel like playing tourist.
