what to wear to the beach

I hate to admit it, but I’m not a huge fan of summer. Though I’m a summer baby {born on July 1!}, the hotter temps make me pretty cranky. But one thing I do love is a weekend at the beach. The sand and the water is so relaxing and I really love any excuse to slip in to a bikini. But keeping cool and looking hot can be a bit difficult when it’s unbearably hot.

On days when the mercury rises {we just had a heatwave on the East Coast}, my motto is keep it simple and head to the beach.

Instead of letting heavy accessories do the talking, a bright swimsuit with a funky detail is enough of a statement. And cut off shorts always do the trick. Rather than buying denim shorts, I actually buy a pair of jeans from the thrift store and rip them up. This is usually cheaper and it allows me to add a personal touch. Of course, don’t overlook a pair of sunnies and a hat to protect you from the harmful rays.

My beauty routine is normally pretty minimal, but especially on a day when I’m beach bound, my routine just includes two major steps, waxing and protecting my skin. Being as smooth as possible is a must when you’re exposing some serious skin. I just tried the Sally Hansen Ouch-Relief wax strips and they weren’t too bad. I’ve been avoiding waxing for years, but I truly built the experience up to be way more painful than it really was. The individual strips are great for last minute grooming and they travel well. And of course, a broad spectrum sunscreen is a must. A swipe of moisturizing lip gloss and a bright nail polish completes the routine.

Above are just a few ways you can keep your style and beauty routine simple and chic. But I want to see what you’ve go. Enter the Sally Hansen Summer Sweepstakes  and have a chance to win a $5000 shopping spree or $100 worth of Sally Hansen products.

I have yet to get to the beach this summer, but I did make it poolside while in New Orleans a few weeks ago. Fingers crossed I get to dip my toes in the ocean before the season’s over.

  1. Love your bikini top!!!! I’ve tried wax strips and like them. Easier than traveling with a razor and shaving cream 🙂
