The spring in New York has so far proven to be windy, rainy and cold. While the rain beats on my windows my mind wanders to the warmer more tropical reaches of the world. What would I be wearing if I was walking the beach somewhere south of the equator? I would definitely be rocking a retro style swimsuit complete with wide brim hat and cat eye glasses. Inspired by my daydreams I went in search of affordable retro beach looks. The result is the look below, assemble for under $150 dollars. Now if only the beach vacation could be had for such a bargain.
