Fashion Friday... Casual Beach Chic

Friday, April 2, 2010

Soon {as in 3 weeks soon}, I will be soaking up the rays--with sunscreen on of course-- at the beach. A whole week dedicated to nothing but books, seafood, and fun with my parents and Jeff... and yes, after the moving, the wedding planning, and the work, I feel as though this trip is well deserved!!
Everywhere I look I am being teased by beach coverups, sandals, and swimwear and I'm thinking I may need to treat myself since this will most likely be my only beach vacation this year =)
Here are some  of my favorite finds for beach chic inspiration...
just to get me ready for play time!!

What are your must-have items when you go to the beach??


  1. I need that ruffle tube top and polka dot bikinni. Could you please let me know where they're from/

  2. I love all your fab finds! I'm not a huge beach person but when I do go, I love wearing shorts and breezy tunics with flat sandals and of course, cute coverups and dresses!

  3. Love all these, especially the sandals!

  4. That ruffle top is adorable! I must have Maui Babe tanning lotion, SPF 50+, sunglasses a book and a big towel or blanket. I am so weirded out by sand I hate it anywhere near me other than on my toes lol.

  5. I always take a big ole hat!!! I don't like to get sun on my face, causes wrinkles! ;) Enjoy!

  6. Oooh so cute! And totally jealous of your beach vacay...
