A Fall Day at the Beach


We know that summer has come to an end, but some of you ladies may live in a warm place, or may find yourself in a tropical place, like this one: cinque

I am currently in a climate that is far from fall, and this weekend I went to the beach for a day of relaxation. In the fall, beach attire looks a little different but I have some key tips on what to wear over those swimsuits.

Take your favorite tunic for instance, a long sleeve, light weight one is perfect to throw over your swimsuit (you can find this one at Free People).

Don't forget your sunglasses, and a beach bag, in our case we brought backpacks because our trip included a hike.  Try to keep your accessories minimal so you don't have to stow too much jewelry away when you hit the water.Leigh

Another alternative is to pair your favorite floral top with cut-offs or jeans on those cooler beach days to keep warm before you hit the water.Leigh 3


The key is light-weight pieces and layers. This drop-waist button up shirt dress is perfect for all shapes and light minimal colors are perfect for beachwear (this top is from H&M)

Cover your one piece with a sheer lace top, and you are dressed up enough to hit a restaurant on the boardwalk before you head for the water (you can find tops similar to this at American Eagle).
