Raised in the cozy beach town of San Clemete in Orange County, California, Oleema and Kalani Miller grew up in the waves, on the beach, and in the sun. Oleema was born with a love for all things fashion and used the sewing skills she learned from her mother to create her own individual and unique wardrobe. Kalani spent her childhood with a paintbrush in hand, and her eccentric and talented designer parents encouraged her love of art, painting, writing, and learning.

Finding inspiration in travels to foreign beaches and distant customs and cultures, the girls decided to embark on a new adventure—creating a collection of swimwear that would reflect their love of travel, passion for one-of-a-kind statement pieces, and their appreciation for that perfect bikini.

MIKOH was created for the confident, chic woman who wants to stand out and make a statement no matter where she is. The brand is synonymous with femininity, strength, and beauty. MIKOH swimwear is a fusion of statement colors and prints inspired by the world around us, luxurious fabrics, and the perfect-fitting pieces. Seamless and hardware free, the collection’s mix-and-match pieces are truly one of a kind.

Style Destination: Costa Rica

Since my team and I are off to Costa Rica once again for our Spring 2012 style shoots, I thought it was only fitting to start off the year’s first Style Destination post with where else—Costa Rica!

With its lush, green landscape and gorgeous coastline, Costa Rica is definitely a tropical playground. Being comfy and cool is top priority when packing for any tropical destination. Here are a few of my essentials for this trip:

3. Ella Moss Rhapsody Cover Up Hooded Poncho: A sheer coverup is perfect for throwing on while you enjoy a little poolside cocktail!

4. The North Face Women’s Horizon Tempest Pant: A pair of lightweight and breathable roll-up pants is perfect for those sudden downpours.
