Channeling: Beach Hooligan

The island was too much of a TROPICAL (of course) setting, thus I went the other route by being not to "BEACH".

I wanted to be a hooligan.

HOOLIGANS are noisy, rowdy members of a gangster group.

What better way to channel that look? My new summer headgear obsession: the BEANIE CAP.

Unusual it is really to be one summer head cover, but the way it sits at the backhead looks relaxed and laidback; gives that I-just-got-out-of-bed soigne vibe.

Sans the NOISE of a hooligan, I pulled out my fall staple last season, my TAUPE deep V-neck sweater, to be a streetwise 'gangster'. Then my turqoise trunks I bought for a steal at the island's public boutique - a MID-THIGH wonder great for swimming and then after.
