Life’s a Beach…

Happy Tuesday!! I have literally been dreaming about spring and summer ever since it started getting cold here in Chicago. Ha ha!  I just got back from a short vacation in Miami and it really made me miss the sun and being able to throw on a bikini or a sundress, instead of a big bulky coat.  I’ve lately been on the kick of buying only things warm weather (even though I can’t wear them yet) because it makes me so happy to see all of the fun spring stuff out already!  I am heading back to Florida in a couple weeks for another vacation, so I started to round up my favorite beach attire, as I am most likely going to spend my entire trip there. ๐Ÿ™‚

This swimsuit from Target is to die for!  It comes in black and pink and is super affordable. I love the scallop detail and the back is very low cut, which shows some skin since the front is a very high cut.  This swimsuit, also from Target is also great for those who want to cover up a bit, but still have a sexy feel.  I also think that it’s super flattering for any body type!

I have been eyeing this coverup from ShopBop for such a long time now! It would be absolutely perfect for a beach vacation and comes in TEN colors!  I seriously love every single one, I would have a hard time picking just one.  Also, how fun is this flamingo float?!  These were super popular last summer, and still are being sold everywhere.  I ordered one of these to float around in the pool (and maybe even bring to the beach!)  The floats are so fun and come in everything from flamingos to pizza to ice cream sandwiches.  I wish I could fill up the pool with one of each ha ha!

What beach essential is on your list this year?  I’d love to hear your pick! 

Thanks for stopping by!! xoxo

  4. Take me to the beach too please! Love those swimsuits, that cover up with the pink fringe, and that float. If I had a pool I'd get all of those floats too, they're so funny! ๐Ÿ™‚
