With summer just around the corner I tried to figure out how to make the good old "what to wear to the beach" post a little more fun. My solution? To base this on my favorite summer guilty pleasure: Cheesy horror stories that take place in beach resorts, secluded islands...or well just any place that has a creepy old guy on a boat.
...And what do all these stories have in common? A bunch of preppy kids who just wanna have a good time (and survive). So to achieve that perfect "horror-story-beach-resort" look you just have to remember the 3 essential Ss (Stripes, Shorts & Sperrys) and you're good to go...and run.

But of course the look alone is not enough, here is the entertainment to go with it:
X-Isle (by Peter Lerangis) is probably the epitome of a trashy horror story, which is exactly why it is so great! Put this on your summer reading list if you enjoy scary stories with shocking twists...
...And talking of shocking twists, those of you who like the movies should check out Fear Island (2009), or if you're a fan of the classics stick to I Know What You Did Last Summer and (if you're really into it) the sequel (but please, only the first one!).
Stuck in your hotel room or beach house thanks to a storm (and hopefully smart enough to know that meeting that townie on his grandpa's boat is a bad idea)? Well how about an island set mystery series like Harper's Island? It's guaranteed to give you a good time without the risk of getting chopped into pieces by an angry fisherman.
Peace, love and shivers...uhm sunshine ;)
