Tbags Lujca Dress in Pink $203
This cheeky little off shoulder dress comes in a variety of colors. It is perfect for taking you from the beach to the hotel bar for a cool icy beverage. The too cute pom pom tassel is detachable and can be used as a necklace or hang it from your beach bag.

Lisa Marie Fernandez Natalie Flounce Bikini $445
Lisa Marie Fernandez, a New York fashion stylist has created basically the best swim line EVER. The suits are made out of an innovative fabric never before used in swim. It is said to actually look better when wet and won't stretch or lose shape like most swimwear does. Most high end swim lines are just made to "look pretty." This classic little number is made to last, you can actually be active in it AND it's pretty...you're welcome!

Randolph Amelia Aviator Sunglasses $259
If you haven't heard of Randolf eye wear you don't know what you're missing. The family owned made in Massachusetts eye brand started out making eye wear for the military back in the 70's producing 200,000 pairs of Aviator sunglasses yearly! Each pair of sunglasses is made in 200 individual steps and a lot of them are done by hand. True American made, durable enough for the military AND they look fabulous! A well worth investment if I do say so myself!

AG Jeans frayed edge denim shorts $168
Summer is not summer until you find the perfect broken in cut-off's. These made in LA cuties are great to throw over your swim suit when it's time to stroll up to the food truck and grab that chicken taco.

Urban Decay Naked Flushed Palette $32
We all love the sun but too much can cause premature wrinkles and sun spots, yikes! Fake and bake the safe way with one of Urban Decay's most popular bronzing palettes and you'll have that sun kissed look you want without all of the damage.

Clare V. Marine Tote $165
This nautical heavy weight canvas tote is crafted in Los Angeles. What we love most about this bag is the sturdy rope handles and the oodles of pockets! Pack it to the brim with all of the US made summer essentials we just showed you and hit up those beaches! West Coast or east coast...from "Sea to Shining Sea."

Love, US
