My family just planned a quick jaunt to La Jolla for my dad's birthday next month! I am crazy excited to lay by the pool and be very Old Hollywood-Glam-Jackie O chic. Hello cat eye glasses and retro print bikini! Also, this bikini is wicked cheap at Target, score. 

1. My must-haves for being in the sun all day include a good sunscreen, leave-in conditioner for my chlorinated locks, and tinted lip balm. 
2. Wedges at the pool are starting to verge on tacky, so why not opt for a flat platform instead?
3. Caftans scream retro beauty by the pool, add these updated cat eyes and a turban for the maximum effect.

Bikini, Target $28 - Coverup, TopShop $90 
Platform Shoe, Asos $42 - Tote, DSW $25 - Sunglasses, Ray Ban x J.Crew $144
Leave-in Conditioner, Ouidad $21 - Tinted Lip Balm, Tarte $24 - Sunscreen, Philosophy $34

1. Balance out the formality of this pleated maxi with a cotton crop top. But limit the skin to just a sliver!
2. Flat sandals also keep the outfit casual. Again, a flat platform would also work great.
3. Keep the accessories limited. I love to pile on jewelry, but to keep this sophisticated, take off your usual arm party and opt for a statement necklace, ring, and simple clutch.
