I have not had a chance to get to the beach this summer. In fact, I haven't been to the beach in almost a year! And it's killing me. The beach is my happy place. But the summer is my hubby's busiest time of year at work and that means we usually take our family vacations in the Fall or Spring. Maybe I'll get there soon?!!
In the mean time, I have been trying to channel "beachiness" with my wardrobe to cheer myself up. ;) For me that means bright and light colors, light-weight materials, casual and comfortable fits, and open-toed shoes. Not to mention wavy hair and soft make-up. Also a must.
This O'Neill shirt is, of course, super beachy as all their clothing is made for the "free-spirited beach girl" and they specialize in wetsuits and swimwear. Perfect! The "sun kissed" graphic with the lips makes me happy. And I love how super light and comfortable it is, plus the length is perfection. I will probably use it over my swimsuits as well since that it what it is really made for.
I paired my blouse with my favorite pair of light colored skinny jeans and my coral wedges. I gave my jeans a roll to add to the casual feel and grabbed my nude clutch as well. My two bracelets are a gift from my son, Connor, which he bought for me on our last trip to Mexico. Where we spent most of our time on the beach, by the way. ;) Love these bracelets and my Connor-man.
And now to talk about my earrings. My friend Kelsey from Fancy That Notion sells these on her Etsy shop and they are amazing. They are made from leather so they are flexible and soft and very comfortable to wear. Not to mention they are so light for their large size. I chose a buttery tan pair that are dipped in gold to give them a shimmer. And I love the fringe effect on the edges. It gives them the look of a feather and right now I am all about feathers.
