Bikinis, groovy shades and a glass of rosé.
Here’s what’s on our list for Summer.

We love the look of Calypso St. Barth‘s boho-chic get-ups. Their patterned bikinis, cover-ups, that in our book double as dresses, and straw hats make us feel beach-ready in minutes. A pair of their dangling gold earrings and a beach bag complete the summer look. We’ve checked out their stores in St. Barth’s, the Hamptons, Manhattan and L.A., but always find ourselves coming back to the Calypso in the Malibu Country Mart to do our shopping. So much so that we’re having a Sparkle Bungalow Summer Soirée there in June. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for all the details.

As soon as we got wind of the fact that La Nuit en Rosé was debuting in
Los Angeles this June, we knew we couldn’t keep it to ourselves. The rosé wine festival was a big hit in N.Y. and Miami and arrives in Hollywood on June 21st at the SkyBar at the Mondrian. Hmmm, rosé champagne and wine tastings, small bites, the fabulous SkyBar views. We’re not seeing a down-side.
We’ll save a spot by the pool for you.

Emerging opens June 6th at the Annenberg Center for Photography.
Ninety emerging international photographers from thirty countries explore themes like youth culture, the environment and the nature of photography. Since admission at the Annenberg is always free, there’s no excuse not to miss this show.

Whenever we need a reminder of why it is we live in California, we take a spin down PCH and grab a bite at Malibu Farm, at the very end of the Malibu Pier. Depending on the weather, we either sit inside in the cozy corner nook piled high with pillows and sheep skins or outside along the water overlooking the surfers at Surfrider beach. We order the crab cakes with aioli, kale caesar and grilled cheese panini and round things out with a fresh, lemony Arnold Palmer or a watermelon juice. There’s a laid back California-chic vibe and most everything is locally sourced and organic. You pretty much can’t go wrong here.

Summer always finds us reaching for our sunglasses. So we’re more than happy to be instantly transported to la Côte d’Azur every time we slip on a pair of these groovy AHLEM shades. Maybe that’s because they’re handmade in France.
Start your vacation now. Enchantée!
