Sunny Days Ahead

Right now I'm dreaming about lying on the beach, listening to the waves crash on the shoreline and chatting up a storm with my friends. I'm excited to say that my dream is getting close!!! Beachwear should be stress free, but so often we find ourselves the most stressed out about beach clothes because we can feel self-conscious about our bodies. So, I try to avoid trying too hard and keep things simple by sticking to the basics...

Sunny Days Ahead...

Sunny Days Ahead... by Alexandra Evjen featuring round sunglasses Lightweight cotton v-neck t-shirts, cut-off denim shorts, fun sunglasses, a hat to protect you from the sun, sandals that go with everything, a beach bag (canvas or straw are always great) and a bathing suit you feel great in. I, personally, stick to one pieces because that's what I feel the most confident in, and confidence is the best accessory, right?

For makeup, bright coral lips are what I'm diggin' right now, bronzer to enhance any kind of tan or cover up a sunburn, bright nail polish that shows up in the water and waterproof mascara.

Beach wavy hair too, of course!

What are some of your beach staples other than a pina colada and good book?

Living in Your Swimsuit

Items in this set:

This past weekend I got to spend some time near the ocean and it just made me long for summer beach days. The smells of sun tan lotion, Popsicles and seafood with the warm sun and a slight breeze blowing is incredibly comforting to me.

These are the days where you live in your swimsuit, and rather than looking like every other girl wearing cutoff shorts or a terry cloth beach dress with your swimsuit, find a cotton skirt and a great belt. Accessorize with a pair of sunglasses, bright lips and a cool bracelet that won't fall of in the water.
