SUMMER'S COMING: LOOKS FOR MEMORIAL DAY
It's Memorial Day Weekend, which usually means barbecues, the beach and maybe boats. Or a combination of any or all of those if you're lucky. Memorial Day also unofficially marks the beginning of summer, which means you'll have to start considering your wardrobe for the season anyway. And you might as well start looking fresh this weekend.
For the ladies, you can't go wrong at Salty Roots Salon and Boutique. It has a sweet collection of swimwear, tops and jean shorts, like the ones pictured. They also have elegant kimono coverups, breezy dresses and rompers, and funky beachy jewelry. Bonus: There's a selection of swimwear on sale for 40 percent off. Also, it's a full-service salon, so you can get some sunny highlights or a facial to give you a healthy glow. 2646 Central Ave., St. Petersburg. saltyrootsboutique.com.
Don't worry, guys, you can get fresh too. Visit Gray Space, a "post 9-5 lifestyle boutique for him." In addition to tees, tanks and muscle tops, they also have these cool swim trunks, pictured below, with drawings of people doing Memorial Day-esque activities. They're bound to make a statement, but beware: People will probably be staring at your shorts all day. If you're feeling extra patriotic, there's an American flag T-shirt with your name on it. 189 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. St. N, St. Petersburg. grayspacefl.com.
