It didn’t really mean that much to me when I first heard that Jill Demling and Karen Mulligan from Pret-à-Surf were doing a collection with J. Crew.

I don’t like nature (Pret-à-Surf made their mark doing beachwear) and I don’t know how to surf. And yes, I reassure you, I did go to college on the West Coast.

After going through the racks though, I had a complete change of heart. The collection has a quintessential Malibu quality that is perfect for any summer sneak-away times you can manage to take.  I just bought the blue striped rashguard and am dying to go back.
