Whether you are traveling to Cape Cod, Malibu, or Miami, you’ll probably be spending some time at the beach this summer. What should you pack for a sand and sun vacation? Here are some cute ideas for surf and turf!
A DAY AT THE BEACH
Trying to find the perfect swimsuit that flatters your figure and makes you feel confident can be a lot of work. But it’s so worth it. I find that when you look good, you feel good and a day at the beach is much more fun. Bring on the selfies!
Here’s a style I don’t think you can go wrong with. This glamorous coral swimsuit is an excellent style for mature figures. It has a classic cut ( not too high at the hips and good support at the bust. The ruching creates the illusion of a waist, conceals your tummy and flatters your hips. Plus, that gorgeous, warm coral color helps play up a tan, even if you only have a hint of one.
Before you make your way to the pool lunch buffet, slip on a light cover up. This white eyelet tunic is a pretty way to go from beach bunny to indoor appropriate. Sparkly sandals add to the Hollywood, Glam Gal vibe of this beach look. Don’t forget to change-up your regular handbag for something more beachy like this woven tote.
SUMMER DAY TRIP
I get a lot of questions about whether you can wear shorts over 40, and is always, Of course you can! I think the key to looking fab in shorts is to always keep things classy.
When you’re tired of the beach, and you want to enjoy a nice lunch on the patio, do some shopping or go sightseeing, then you can wear something like this. Start with a pair of crisp white shorts and add a feminine one shoulder or cold shoulder top. These have a bit of a fun vibe and look more stylish than your regular old Tee.
Don’t slack off when it comes to accessories. Pull the look together with this festive pom pom tote and a touch of jewelry. If you plan on doing a lot of walking, then flat sandals are probably better, but otherwise, these rope wedge sandals with a metallic finish are comfy and stylish.
For those warm summer evenings spent enjoying dinner and drinks at the resort, a maxi is a nice change from a short dress. I bought a couple of maxis recently and I’m surprised just how much I like and wear them. They’re super comfy and they feel very summery.
Again, accessories are important to complete the look. These beaded flats are very versatile and will go with almost anything in your wardrobe, while the straw tote captures the spirit of summer.
