Sometimes going to the beach isn’t as simple as throwing on your bathing suit and popping out the back door to hit the surf. Some beaches have a vibe or a scene where you need to look a bit more pulled together. The old beach towel over your shoulder just won’t do. Maybe you will be grabbing a bite to eat or even a drink at sunset. Today’s outfit it very easy to wear and requires very little, but looks really great! I am wearing a classic style bikini from A. Che. It is a solid hot pink suit with gold accents at the bust and on the ties. The bottoms have a ruching detail on the seat. The solid hot pink is a perfect choice to be worn under this poncho style cover up in bright, happy colors with a playful pink pom pom trim. This Piece from Mud Pie has plenty of coverage, yet is still beachy and cool. Best of all, this poncho can be thrown in your bag and it looks just as good as when you originally put it on. I wore a whimsical straw sun hat by San Diego Hat Co. that I picked up at Chelsea Market in NYC. (a fun fact about my hat- it is made of 75% paper and 25% polyester) I just love it!! I brought along my nude patent and cork wedges incase I came along a sign that read, “No Shirt, No Shoes, No Service. The sun was high and my spirits higher as I visited Main Beach in East Hampton for this post. Lucky Me!! Happy Weekend and I hope you find some time to relax in the sand.
