Cathy Covets...A Beach Wardrobe
Memorial Day Weekend Edition
When you think about the inspiration for your posts, what comes to mind? Sometimes I have an idea that materializes into a post over a period of time, and sometimes, like today, it's a spontaneous thought (while in the shower) that immediately hits the blog. Planning my Memorial Day weekend beach wardrobe...
|Amalfi Coast, Italy|
|Bora Bora Pearl Beach Resort|
A beachy wardrobe...
1 Victoria's Secret Liya bikini top($28), bottom($20)
2 Marc Jacobs reversible two-piece swimsuit / farfetch.com ($170)
3 Rebecca Minkoff straw boyfriend tote ($195)
4 Nightcap Clothing gauze beach pants / shopbop.com ($253)
5 Tibi silk-crepe and chiffon dress / net-a-porter.com ($440)
6 Dior round Croisette sunglasses / neimanmarcus.com ($325)
7 Dior Rouge Dior lipcolor in Pink Caprice / sephora.com ($32)
8 Forever 21 colorblock trim floppy hat ($13)
9 Rebecca Minkoff Baha sandals ($165)
11 Milly Acapulco maillot / shopbop.com ($220)
12 Bebe Aztec print short ($79)
13 Victoria's Secret star print bikini top($15), bottom($14)
My go-to swimwear piece has always been the halter or triangle style bikini. I find it to be the most flattering for my body type. What style do you prefer?
When putting together a beach wardrobe, consider bringing the colorblocking and mixed prints trends of the season into your beach wardrobe by mixing tops and bottoms to create new looks. Try a neon pink top with a red bottom. How about a blue top with a tribal print bottom similar to the Bebe shorts shown above? Or try mixing a print top with a different print bottom of a bikini shown above. Options are endless. After that, you get to incorporate the colorblocking and print mixing trends into coverups, footwear, and hats. Yay!
Well, I may not be heading to the Amalfi coast or Bora Bora this weekend, but a weekend here at the beach on Galveston Island, Texas still screams "BEACH WARDROBE"!
Have a safe and fun holiday weekend! Don't forget the sunblock! :)
