Sweet Swimwear

Now that beaches, marinas and pools have reopened, it’s time to revamp the resort wardrobe. Along with South Florida mainstays from Montce swimwear to Mermaids Swim Boutique, Amina Swim is a nice addition to the local scene. The emerging designer brand offers interesting styles like the Nadi’s lace-up, high-neck top and the Riviera set, pictured here, with straps and cutouts.

Picnic Party

Because al fresco activities with social distancing are recommended as healthier alternatives when leaving the house, it’s a great excuse to get a few friends together for a picnic. Order a bunch of yummy selections from Lunch Room Sandwiches, which operates a few locations around Fort Lauderdale, and hit your favorite park or garden. (The menu is perfect for boating daytrips, too.)

Nu Notes

Missing live music? The second-best thing is watching Nu Deco Ensemble’s recorded concerts on its Facebook page.

Tune in for their collaborations with Ben Folds, Daft Punk, Nina Simone, Wyclef Jean, composer/DJ Mason Bates and more.
