    UPDATE:Mid-June means you'e actually planning those weekend getaways and "sick days" at the beach. And the flops just keep on flippin' right along with your summer events. This article was originally published on May 3, 2012.

    In case you haven't heard, summer is just around the corner, meaning your focus needs to shift from spring cleaning to summer lovin'—fast. And for all the time we plan to — hopefully — spend poolside and wave-side this summer, a great sandal is a must, and an old, gross pair (you know the kind) just won't do. The tried-and-true flip-flop is essential for the beach, but a cute pair can lend you a hand…er, foot running around the city as well (hello commuting shoes!).

The Most Flattering Swimsuit For YOU

Lately, it's taken nearly all our willpower not to think about sun rays, long weekends, and beach hair — from the actual beach and not a bottle. But, there's really no bigger buzzkill than hours of trying on bathing suits that epically fail to do your body justice. And, the fact is, your swimwear is probably the read
