It’s that time of year again: with pool parties, morning dips, and water aerobics on our schedules, many of us are in the market for a new swimsuit. But what are the hot styles, and what will best fit and flatter our body types? Not to mention, how do you accessorize a swimsuit? We asked wardrobe and style consultant Monica Negri to produce a pictorial that illustrates a variety of swimsuit looks —from retro to boho chic to athleisure. Tom Spitz took the photos at the spacious pool at Casino Del Sol Resort.
Staying at resorts around the state is just one way in which Tucsonans enjoy some R and R during the summer months. Our Arizona Summer Pleasures section rounds up concerts, festivals, sporting events, and many other activities happening this month in Tucson and areas throughout the Grand Canyon State. Seasoned Southern Arizonans know that the key to enjoying June through August is to get out of bed and get going early. That doesn’t mean that we want to forego a delicious breakfast, and we asked Sarah Burton to drop by five local eateries to check out what they have to offer. We think that the photos from Tom Veneklasen alone will be enough to motivate you to rise and shine!
While we’re on the subject of eating, proper nutrition is important to everyone, but with all the information from various sources, it can be difficult to keep up with recommendations. We have compiled some advice from registered dietician Charlyn Fargo that ranges from rules for protein intake to healthier baking.
