It’s a short blog week over here due to the holiday. This is my last post for this week since we are leaving to enjoy a few days at the beach. I popped into Old Navy the other day and found some great summer essentials and got inspired to put together an outfit post. Here’s my beach style inspired by Independence Day!
Here’s my 4th of July beach style this year.
First off, Old Navy has been impressing me with their summer selections. I have been pleasantly surprised lately! I snagged a white gauze blouse and those boyfriend cuffed shorts. They are perfect to work into your wardrobe all summer long. I love this over a bikini and it’s great for strolling the beach.
In the spirit of the 4th, I found these cute mix and match swim separates at J.Crew. There is a really great selection of red, white, and blue to choose from. I love their suits too.
Another recent favorite of mine are Turkish towels. I received a Turkish T towel in my recent Popsugar Must Have Box and I adore it. The pattern, the fringe! It’s big enough to use as a beach towel and doubles as a sarong or wrap. Love, love, love!
Sunglasses are a must for a day at the beach, and I have a confession here. I go CHEAP on sunglasses. My kids grab them, scratch them, I end up leaving them somewhere…it is like throwing money away if I buy super nice ones! But, you know what? I get compliments ALL THE TIME on my cheapos from Forever 21. These cat-eye sunglasses are so flattering and for the price you can stock up!
I don’t know if it’s being on the East Coast right now, or the fact that I never met a bold stripe I don’t love, but a striped tote bag feels necessary for a beach day, does it not? This Sea Stripe Tote Bag from L.L.Bean is a great price point and well-made. It’s canvas, has rope detail, and you can monogram it. What’s not to love!?!
I guess I’ve been living under a rock, but Jonathan Adler for TOMS! Ummm…yes, the collection is as good as it sounds! These Navy Geometric JA Correa Sandals are beyond yummy. I just adore them!
Last but definitely not least…my beach ensemble would not be complete without an anchor necklace. This simple gold anchor necklace from Charming Charlie is the perfect accessory for this look.
I can’t wait to slip into this for our beach day! These are pieces I will get use out of all summer long.
I wish you all a happy 4th! Have fun celebrating and be safe!!
