When April & May rolls around and the music festivals are underway, it's like the kickoff to warmer weather has officially begun. That means the start of effortless chic beach/boho style and all the light cotton layers a gal could ask for.
Living in San Diego of all places, you’d have thought that I would have hit the beach fairly often. But as with living in any city, after a while you tend to get into the grind and often forget about the beauty that’s right around you. This season, make it a point to take advantage of the fabulous weather & casual festival/beach vibe with these 5 pieces that will have you rocking chic beach style in no time!
Here are 5 of my favorite beach styles that make up my wardrobe during the warmer months of spring & summer:
1 | Sandals | Leather strappy sandals are some of my most favorite. They not only pair well with anything from shorts to dresses, but they last forever! If you decide to invest in a pair, one of my favorites comes from J.Crew. But for a fun faux pair, try Target, they always have knockoffs that are “on trend” beach styles during the summer months.
2 | Flowy Cotton Dresses | Maxi dresses, shift dresses, any dress that seems to flow with the ocean currents. Those are the beach style dresses I love. They’re easy to pull off when the splashing in the water comes calling and they’re great to wear when strolling around town.
3 | Espadrilles | Another fun summer favorite shoe of mine. Lately, Saludos has had some hilariously cute styles and they are relatively affordable. I also love espadrilles with a rise and wear these constantly.
4 | Hats | Oh how I love summer time hats. Fedoras, floppys, they are perfect paired with a dress and not to mention to keep the sun off that gorgeous face of yours. Nothing says beach style like throwing on a great summer hat.
5 | Easy Summer Shorts | My favorites are a simple pair of jean shorts. I wear them to death in the summer and they are perfect to layer over a swimsuit. My favorites (because they’re affordable & comfy) come from Gap & Target. Spending a lot on jean shorts isn’t something I want to do!
