Summer Style Secrets: Rikshaw Design


It still feels like summer here in New York.
Fingers crossed this lasts and lasts...
ahhh, endless summer...
This is what it must be like to live in California!
In my mind, it's all beachy chic and boho style 24/7.
That's because my concept of California living
has been enhanced by reading, Rikshaw Design.
 So, naturally, I'm thrilled that Catherine is sharing some of her
West Coast uber stylish secrets here today!
~*~
i am very excited to be asked for my summer style secrets for the "fabu" Zhush!


this summer i have a beach cruiser bike with a basket and i have named the bike 'bessie'..i adore cruisin' around on her, getting fresh air in the head and taking in the summer sun...i suggest renting them while on vacation anywhere or go get one!


a little self-promo..but the rikshaw kurtas, are perfect to have in your beach bag to throw on over your swimsuit or change into for a bite while watchin' the sunset!


i love this basket bag it has a linen pouch on the chain inside to hold your phone but perfect for the beach so you can shake all the sand out of it! found here

fav new nail color (finally!) its called Mod-ern girl, its the perfect corally-pink

image from here
rainbow flops are perfection...i bought them while huffin' and puffin' through NYC in august, dying of the heat, so i bought them and to get them perfectly molded and worn to your feet you wear them in the shower with you and walk around with them until they dry on your feet..molded perfection!
and a little extra...summertime screams reggae music...plug in 'gregory isaacs' into your pandora..and catch some rays..
thanks sue!

  5. I've been admiring her tunics for a while now - so beautiful. Need to check out that nail polish, the color looks fab! As for the weather, I'm kind of done with the super hot weather we are having down here in GA - yesterday it was 98. I need some cooler weather, cooler not cold!

  14. Awesome post! I love the tunic and I love that bag! And yes, although you can wear flip flops year round here it does rain a lot and people do wear flip flops in the rain. I could be wearing a peacoat and and boots while someone next to me at the grocery store is wearing sandals and a t shirt. One of us is in denial...

    I adore this site! Thanks for the intro. Those flowers on that bike are just yummy!

  43. Thank goodness we still have our Summer Style Secrets; it was 80+ degrees today on the North Shore (not that I really minded).
    Best,
    Colleen

  44. I still don't know how to ride a bike (I know, shameful, right?) but I'd definitely learn if I had one as adorable as that! ;)
    Love that shade of nail polish. Xx

    ReplyDelete
  45. Those tunics are so pretty. :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. I love biking in the summer too :-) But my bike isn't as pretty as the pink bike in Catherine's picture!!

    I've never heard of rainbow flops. How cool that they mold to your feet -- can't get shoes any more comfy than that!!
