Island in the Sun

I've been spending almost everyday in the sun and I love it! I never want summer to end...
Mango granola parfait... my breakfast pretty much every morning. 
Poolside in a leopard Vix bikini and Super sunglasses
Wearing a hand-painted skirt from American Rag, American Apparel sash bandeau, Kate Spade straw bag, Givenchy sandals, antique necklace, and 60s lucite ring.
Happy Monday everyone!
