Susan Cernek, Fashion Editor at Glamour, shared her summer style with us:

SUN OR SHADE?: Sun-it allows for more accessorizing.

THE COLOR OF SUMMER 2010: Aquamarine: the color of the sea, sky and the signature blue stripe on a Mister Softee truck.

ALL TIME FAVORITE VACATION LOCATION: A big old house on the Maine coast is the very definition of picturesque. Farther afield, it’s incredibly difficult to have a bad time on the Amalfi Coast.

MOST REFRESHING SUMMERTIME DRINK: A Southampton. Pour tonic over ice, add three dashes of Angostura Bitters and top off with a squeeze of lime.

PLANTED IN THE GARDEN THIS YEAR:Agave, jade and other succulents. (Garden might be a stretch–it’s really more of a windowsill tableau.)

ESSENTIAL SUMMER SONG FOR PARTY PLAYLIST: Beach Fossil’s Daydream, Katrina & the Waves’s Walking on Sunshine and Christopher Cross’s Sailing. (A little soft rock never hurt anyone.)

BEST BOOK IN THE BEACHBAG: I’m not a fan of salt or chlorine-tinged pages (leads to odd, lumpy bindings). Instead, I opt for old New Yorker issues, even though sunscreen and cartoon ink don’t mix. (See photo above)

Thanks, Susan!
