Wishing: The Beach

The temperatures are starting to rise in the Dallas area.  We have a day or two here and there when the temperatures dip a little, but we are definitely on the path to a super hot summer.  I'm going a little stir crazy and am in need of a few days away, preferably on a beach.

Beach Time

Fedora: Windsor // I dye my hair and the salt water of the ocean does enough damage to my color, so I try to at least protect it from the sun.

Hair tie: Nordstrom // There's nothing like hair sticking to your neck under the hot summer sun.  I always pull mine back off my neck.

Swimsuit Top: Sperry // Bottom: J. Crew // I've been searching for a new swimsuit (even though there is nothing wrong with the ones I already have) and I came across this top and bottom.  Separately.  As I've already mentioned, I'm on a navy kick lately and that fits perfectly into the nautical theme.

Cover up: J. Crew // I also like the idea of using this chambray button up as a cover up.  This allows for discretion on how much is covered up.  One button or all can be buttoned (all might be a tad hot).  I would also roll up the sleeves.

Sandals: Aerie // I'm not much of a flip flop wearer - they are strictly beach wear in my opinion.  But, theoretically I'm at the beach for this scenario, so they are very fitting.  The pop of color here is perfect for the beach.

Sunscreen: Neutrogena // I tan very easily and it's very important to me to keep my skin protected.  I also have super sensitive skin, so this is really the only sunscreen I can wear.

Sunglasses: Zappos // In my opinion aviators never go out of style.  They are a very classic shape and I've been wearing them for a couple of years now.

Now I just need to convince my husband that we need a beach vacation.


  1. I need a cute hat for beach weekends this summer!

    1. The one in the post is pretty inexpensive. Or if you want to spend a little more, I saw some really cute hats at J.Crew.
