So, you’ve got your swimsuits packed!
Hat, CHECK, beach bag, CHECK and of course sunscreen, CHECK. But, what about the rest of your trip? What else will you need for your winter escape?
You hate to over pack and a day at the beach is pretty simple to anticipate. Have you thought about the days of sightseeing or what you will wear for a nice meal out? What other warm weather essentials will you need? No worries gals, that’s where I come in! I’ve assembled a warm weather LIST – off the beach edition just for you!
You’ve packed sandals for the beach but what about a shoe to dress up your look? That’s where these wedge espadrilles come into play! The lace up effect is so feminine and fun, not only that but you can tie them two unique ways. See how I wear mine in my styling video below! And don’t forget to size down if you fall in love (like I am suspecting you will, hehe).
WHITE BUTTON DOWN
(double as a swimsuit cover-up)
A white button-down is never a bad idea in my books. You will look ultra chic pairing it with denim shorts during your day out on the town! Fashion tip: wear over a basic tank-top. That way you can layer down in the afternoon sun and layer up for any cool mornings/evenings. I also think it would look so cute worn over a body-con dress like below. Just tie at the waist!
The perfect outfit to SEE the sights! Wear your body-con with white sneakers, stylish sunnies and a straw purse. Finish the look with a jean jacket. P.S. Don’t be surprised by how many admired glances come your way because girl you are going to look sooo good!
FASHION FORWARD SUNGLASSES
My favorite sunnies at the moment!
Date night approved. I would recommend a dress that you can take from day to night and this one definitely makes the cut! I love the midi length and tie-up back!
Breezy, lightweight and floral = the perfect piece to dress up or down!
It’s ALL about finding the right fit and my perfect fit, hands down, is the AGOLDE shorts. High waist, touch of distressing and a slight flare (oh so flattering) these are the best denim cut-off’s I have ever owned. Oh and NO BOOTY SHORT here so walk in comfort + style!
For the days A LOT of walking is in store, trust me when I say you need white sneakers!!! Not only are they the comfiest choice, there is nothing these shoes do not look good with! Seriously ♥
LIGHTWEIGHT TANK TOP
So basic, I know, but absolutely essential. What I like about this tank top in particular is that it’s a relaxed fit and lightweight (key in a warm climate). You can tuck into your denim during the day or take advantage of the extra length and throw on quickly over your swimsuit as a cover up to get to the pool!
Maybe it’s just me but I am obsessed with over-sized jean jackets. A roomy jacket in my opinion is the best escape! No matter how warm the climate, it never fails, I always have moments I need to wrap up in something. Guaranteed, you will be so surprised at how much you reach for this coat!
