Say "Go!" to Sago
Celebrate tropical sago cycads with these mid-rise jeans from J Brand. Not quite the deep olive that I had wanted to replace older 7s, now too tight, but these ankle skinnies do complement tees and tanks that bring to mind high deserts and rain forests. A somewhat elevated waistline works well with shorter tops and helps to hide unsightly bulges. The rest is up to you. Let J Brand provide the inspiration for your perspiration. It's my diet plan AND wardrobe choice.

Hav to Hav My Havaianas
Havaianas, with their Japanese styling and Hawaiian-inspired name provide chic international flair on a budget. Despite the tongue-twisting trademark, these wafer-thin flip flops have, for almost 50 years, grown in popularity and brought style and comfort to the resort scene. Even urbanites who rarely visit the shore can use them comfortably as bed/bath slippers, good to go should the door bell ring or the dog want out. Rubber thongs are forgiving, so those with less-than-perfect feet can look stylish and feel comfortable. Soles provide just enough cushioning for those with achey-breaky knees. Lively Turkish foot-bed prints make new additions to the collection especially compelling. Fairly loose in fit and guaranteed to become looser with wear, they make demands upon feet that sturdier flip flops do not. Still, for on, off, and getting about, they can't be beat!

Anchors Away!
Hold fast to these nautical flip flops, especially if you live in or near a seaside resort or vacation at one. Tory's footbed designs are colorful and as sophisticated as they are playful. Her rubber soles can't be beat for everyday comfort. If you're vertically challenged as I am, the thongs go a long way toward making you happy despite your diminutive stature. Must be the bounce and wow factors, right?

Best in Blue
Santorini jeans were also cut as a mid-rise, but the higher waist is not as chic. Perfect for summer, this low-rise rendition sold out quickly. Congratulations and thanks to shopbop.com for re-ordering them for poky shoppers like me. The image on the Web site is true. Neat and trim, they're ideal for casual days in town or at the shore. No fan of excessive whiskering (makes one's thighs look wrinkled) or denims that bunch at the knees and ankles, I value pants like this, and J Brand seems to know I'm here even when some industry designers are peddling flared-leg styles for tall gals in heels who covet that retro look and don't fear tripping over their hems. Not to be missed, the Santorinis provide great fashion, fit, and color. More likely to take a staycation than a cruise around the Greek isles this year? These bleached blues with their evocative name offer flattering compensation.
