When I was little, my mom used to literally pack laundry baskets to take my sister and I to the beach for weeks at a time. As we got older, the kids got more involved in things at home (swim team mostly) and we went to the beach less and less. The upkeep of the house was too much for a place that, all told, was being used for maybe a couple of weeks out of the year. My family ultimately sold our little cottage on stilts by the sea that had been in the family for three generations- right before Hurricane Sandy hit. I don’t get to the beach nearly as much as I’d like to, but a girl can still dream about packing up and shipping off to the shore.

Strapless open-toed sandals

This summer, I’m going to find some stylish strapless open-toed sandals. The less strap, the better, to prevent blisters + hot feet. There are already hundreds of different designs in most stores.  I plan to look for something in a light brown color because that tends to go well with almost anything.

Designer swimsuits

I’m not one to spend a fortune on designer clothes if I can find cheaper alternatives. However, I rarely cut back when it comes to buying swimsuits. That is because even the designer brands are often affordable.  Fella Swim swimsuits online seem to fit the bill. Still, there are lots of other brands I’m going to consider. I just happen to think that it’s worth spending a little more when you’re buying something so delicate and revealing.

Essential beach accessories

No beach outfit is complete without a makeover and a few essential accessories. Firstly, I hate carrying things around, and so I’m always one to throw everything in a beach bag. It’s sensible to get something much larger than your handbag if you want it to hold everything you require.

I’m also prudent to invest in some sunglasses to protect your eyes. If you’re going to buy sunglasses from The Sunglasses Warehouse, you just need to find a style you enjoy. The same applies when you buy from any well-known retailer. Many ladies are opting for aviator-style glasses this summer, but you should choose whatever frames your face nicely.

At the end of the day, it’s possible to make substantial savings if you shop around. For that reason, it’s sensible to check online before you head out to the retail stores. Sometimes you’ll find better deals and offers using the internet. Whatever you decide to do, I hope you look amazing on the beach.

When you’re into fashion, summer really is the perfect time to have fun with your look. You don’t have to worry about wrapping up in layers to keep warm and dry, so no throwing on a big coat and boots with every outfit you put together. Instead, you have far more flexibility/ Plus Summer clothing tends to be more colorful and bold than anything you can find over the autumn and winter, so fantastic for really making a statement. There are certain accessories and trends that have trickled down from the runway and into our favorite stores, if you want to get on board here are a few things to try this summer!

Frasier Sterling Party Like It’s 1999 Silver Choker Necklace

Chokers

Chokers have been on trend for some time now, and aren’t set to go anywhere just yet. While big statement jewelry chokers are popular (and can look fantastic on a night out) when it’s warm in the daytime you could go with something lighter and more comfortable. Even bootlace style tie chokers can bring something to an outfit but won’t feel like it’s weighing you down. Other jewelry trends include asymmetrical earrings– something to try if you’re feeling really brave! And bold pendant necklaces. These are a great way to perk up any plain looking summer outfit.

Eye Catching Belts

Designers such as Alexander McQueen and Balenciaga accessorized their outfits on the runway with old, eye-catching belts- so expect to see similar kinds of styles hitting the stores this summer. Again it’s another easy way to perk up a simple outfit. Denim shorts, a tank top and sandals make a simple summer outfit- a statement belt could really bring it to life. If you keep everything else quite simple and go for one bold piece it brings personality without being overkill.

Oversized Sunglasses

Oversized sunnies continue to stay on trend in 2017- great news since they’re a flattering and easy to wear style giving you instant glamor. Plus larger sunglasses protect the eye area better meaning fewer UV rays to damage the delicate skin around the eyes. Be sure to try on a wide selection of sunglasses to find a pair that really suits your face size and shape. Aviators are a classic and are a style you can wear time and time again if you want something that makes less of a statement.

Knee High Athletic Socks

Knee high socks look super cute, the perfect addition to a pair of shorts. They’re ideal if you’re not too keen on your legs since they covered them up- and they also protect them too if you’re going on hikes or playing sports (or if it gets a bit chillier one day). All in all, they are a fun way to accessorize an outfit and can be practical in some cases too. Some designers have even showcased them with wedges and sandals, but if you’re not quite on board with this trend, you can play it safer with a pair of sneakers.

What trends and accessories are you most excited to try out this summer?
