Beach Resort Wear Ideas!

beachwear10

Happy Monday, everyone!

Most of us have been enjoying the beautiful summer weather while on vacation. I love summer traveling because I am able to wear outfits that I might otherwise be unable to show off normally (such as that fancy dress for a night on the town). Beach vacations are my favorite, & I love to wear outfits that are beach approved! Beach resort wear is that easy look that is both comfortable & fashionable. These looks help to make you feel more relaxed while enjoying those sunny days!

A Day At Bethany Beach, DE!

On Monday I took a shopping trip to Bethany Beach, DE. It is the cutest little town! It has so many shops that are unique & adorable! One store I went into was called “Yuppy Puppy.” It had hand-made dog treats, dog toys, & dog gifts. Bethany Beach is definitely more family & community oriented. The whole town is very clean & has a very mellow atmosphere. I loved it! 🙂

Nautical Accents!

Nautical Accents!
Every summer, the nautical theme makes a comeback. Typically in the colors of red, white, & blue and anything seafaring. I used to find this décor rather trendy, not my cup of tea. But over the years, along with various beach trips that I look forward to every summer, I’ve grown to love the nautical theme. However, I think nautical should have a sophisticated feel.
My Tips:
1. Red, White, & Blue Colors
2. Stripes
3. Anchors & Anything Related to the Sea
I bought coasters from Charming Charlie that I think are a great way to add that nautical feel to your home!

Birthday Festivities!

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

It’s so nice to have a long weekend before going back to work. It makes everything more relaxing. I was lucky enough to celebrate my birthday over the holiday weekend. I spent the weekend at the beach, it was lovely! The weather was perfect, & I even got to wear shorts. Always a plus!

I got myself a few birthday presents at the outlets. One was a JCrew necklace. I love JCrew jewelry, so I thought I’d indulge! I also purchased a new pair of sunglasses, also JCrew.

While enjoying the boardwalk, I came across a bookstore that sells nearly every book & nick-knack you could think of. It’s one of those bookstores where the books are piled on shelves, & digging through them is half the fun! I found a forty-year old copy of The Great Gatsby. The edges are trimmed in gold & each chapter has lovely illustrations.

Finally, I went to Marshalls & found chocolate covered Oreos. Yes, I said that correctly. They were amazing!!

My birthday was really wonderful! I am truly blessed, & I’m so glad I could enjoy turning 23 with the ones I love! ❤

Beach Days!

Beach Days!~~~
 Beach days are so close! I have a beach vacation planned for my birthday in a few weeks. The beach life has always been appealing to me. Sand, sun, & care-free living. It just makes me happy to look out over the sand and surf. ❤

Spring Break Must Haves!

Spring Break Must Haves!
~~~
Spring Break is almost here!
With what seems like the longest winter, it is a happy thought to know that Spring Break is only a few weeks away. I thought I’d give you a peek at some of my must haves for Spring Break. Enjoy!
  • Sandals-The big sister of flip-flops, sandals add a little more glam to an outfit!
  • Swim Suit-Go for a style that makes you feel confident!
  • Sunglasses-A necessities to keep your eyes shaded, though you can take a tip from Holly Golightly & wear them as a fashion statement!
  • Magazines-Leisure reading is total beach protocol!
  • Anchors-Reminds you that the sea is never too far, & to always stay grounded!
  • Nail Polish-A pedicure is in order if you are showing your toes this spring. Go for bright, cheerful colors. This one by Essie called “Where’s My Chauffer?is just darling!
  • Makeup Bag-While full-on makeup at the beach or pool isn’t necessary, having a few key items for touch ups will be a life saver!
  • Tote Bag-The use? To carry all your goodies, of course! This Kate Spade bag is so chic!

Beach Week Haul!

As fun as the beach was this week, I’m glad to be home. I missed my dog and bed! Plus, my blogging took a back seat while enjoying the rays, so I am glad I can get back into the swing of things! Anyway, I figured I’d do a haul of some items I picked up while on vacation, and a few random things. Enjoy!

These chocolate-covered strawberries were so good!

Found this notebook at Marshall’s. Totes cute!

Grace Kelly DVD Collection. I also thought the box was beautiful!

Sadly, I did not buy these beauties. But I thought the polka dot pattern was so cute!

I got these earrings for $15!

 

Since I recently bought a record player, I’ve been on the lookout for some tunes to play. Here are a few I got at thrift stores.

Another Marshall’s find!

I got this rose from a guy who makes them by hand on the boardwalk. He is from Hawaii, and makes different things out of leaves, such as baskets, hats, and roses. So cool!

I saw this art print and fell in love!

Beach Week Update!

It’s hard for me to do posts since I am away from reliable Wi-Fi. I figured I’d post today since I have quite a bit to share. Enjoy!

~~~

We decided to get brunch one day at The Angler. Talk about good food! I got Banana’s Foster French Toast, delish!

We got muffins before the meal, and we took our extras home. 😉

  

We also ate outside, and the view was great!

Last night, we got to watch fireworks. So pretty!

Finally, today we did some inlet shopping. I found this cute Audrey Hepburn canvas:

I should be back to my daily posting schedule soon. But I gotta enjoy the beach while I can! 🙂
