The beach is by far my favorite place on this earth. You guys all know I am a city girl but the beach will always have my heart. I love the calmness and how peaceful it is to lounge around on the warm sand. Then of course the adrenaline rush you get as you dive under massive waves and fight the current. You walk out of the water with you hair all over the place, bikini bottoms up your booty, and most importantly a huge smile on your face.
The beach is also my aesthetic in a nutshell; soft muted colors, light blue, and good lighting. I lost track of my theme for awhile on Instagram but this beach trip has already revived my Instagram feed (shameless self promo @martabean).
Anywho today I wanted to share with you guys one of my go to beach outfits!
My go to look for the beach is “easy breezy”. I want to look as effortless as the ocean. My first staple is an oversize white button up shirt (preferably a linen material). I like mine to be oversized so I can walk around after being at the beach with just my top on (similar here). I don’t know about you guys but I hate sandy shorts and I’ve always preferred to wear my top without shorts than my shorts without a top. Speaking of shorts, I don’t have a preference on what type of shorts I wear to the beach because anything will match a classic white shirt. I only packed two pairs with me and they are both from Madewell. I brought the ones I’m wearing above and then a black pair.
While laying on the beach I like to have my hair up and out of my face and if I’ve learned anything from my momma it’s to always throw your hair up in a cute way <3 Of course my bandana is also from Madewell. It’s a new print we just got and it is perfect for the beach. I put my hair up into a bun and then wrapped the bandana around it into a bow in the back.
I put my swimsuit on underneath and added my sunglasses and was ready to go!
Don’t forget to bring your polaroid camera with you! Capture the memories and relax. My favorite way to relax is to leave my phone at home every time we go to walk along the beach to take a break from the internet.
I can’t wait to keep sharing with you guys my favorite looks from this beach trip!
Remember to always love who you are <3
