Beach Please!

Hey, girl, hey!

A couple of weekends ago I had the most amazing time relaxing on the beach with my mom, sisters, daughter, niece and a friend of my sis.  It was a mini vacay, however, much needed to rejuvenate my senses.  I don't know why, but I'm so drawn to the ocean.  The waves crashing against the shore and that fresh beach-y air are so intoxicating.

As I began packing, I knew I wanted this floral tank to go with me.  It's soooo pretty with the blue and green print.  The green florals are actually a lace overlay to the blue floral print.  I'm loving the cut of the tank and the little tie detail on each side.  It has amazing stretch and is very light and flow-y (perfect for a hot and humid beach climate).

While there we popped in Wal-Mart for a few essentials such as beach towels, umbrellas, and sunscreen.  My eyes landed on the KA-UTEST pineapple crossbody.  I literally let out a little scream in the accessories section of the store...lol!  It went perfect with my lace up gladiators and ripped bermuda shorts.  All of these pieces will be on constant rotation throughout the spring and summer.  Ummm-hmmm....

What wardrobe pieces do you plan on wearing as the weather heats up?

  3. Such a cute look that has me dreaming of the beach! The accessories are such a nice burst of color and fun. Talbots has some similar yellow sandals right now with pineapples on them. And a sweater with beaded pineapples around the neck. I'm seriously considering them! I wouldn't think to pair yellow with deep green and blue, but the palette you've shown here is absolutely gorgeous! Have a great weekend!
