What do you like best when dressing for summer?
I collect sunglasses and hats so it's nice to be able to use them endlessly in the summer, not only to look pretty but also to stay cool.

How do you pick your swimsuits?
I try to go for colors that complement my skin tone, which are either bright neons to bring out a tan or basics which look good on pretty much anyone. Lately I've been oddly drawn to ruffles, which is a new thing for me, and I'm pretty much hell-bent on finding the perfect black ruffled two-piece which I have yet to find.

How do you accessorize your swimwear for poolside and beach activity?
Lots of brights or pastels combined with neutrals and blacks. During summer, I love loud nail polish, obnoxious sunnies, and men's snapbacks. Add a playlist full of indie beach music, a popsicle, some chilled Rose, and a pack of cigarettes and I might never leave the water ever again.

Can you give tips on how to dress up for the beach or poolside?
Choose loose flowing fabrics, the perfect denim cut-offs and a hat to protect yourself from a heatstroke. Also, choose a bikini that flatters your shape, and make sure you are comfortable in it, you will never pull off a swimsuit unless you are 100% comfortable in it. Confidence is key!
