Do you ever struggle getting that perfect gift for a friend or special someone.  I strive to be thoughtful and creative when I pick gifts for my loved ones...but it is so hard!!  I was recently introduced to an innovative board shorts company called Shortomatic. Not only do they have a wide variety of designs created by incredible artists, one of the best parts about this company is that you can design the shorts yourself!  Isn't that a great way to personalize a gift?!

I had such a great time putting together a sealaura inspired piece. I chose a photograph I took in St. John and went to work.   The ability to use a photograph or artwork to create a custom piece is something I had not seen before, especially with quality materials such as their "robust super suede polyester microfiber."  This fabric gives you the desired mobility and water deflection that every beachonista needs.  I also like that the shorts are wearable off the sand, like at the boardwalk, at the pool, at lunch.  I could see these being perfect for those days when I am not feeling that teeny weeny bikini but still want to look like a babe!  If you ever wanted to play designer, head on over to Shortomatic and give it a whirl.  You might just end up with the perfect gift for that beach bound gal or guy in your life.  But really, who are we kidding? You need a pair too! Oh and remember if your creative juices are not flowing, there are plenty of gorgeous options waiting for you like this one.

Have a great weekend designing and enjoying summer!
