If youíre planning on heading out later in day without returning home you might want to toss a pair of jeans or long skirt into your bag. If your outing is going to extend into evening youíll want to include a sweater for cooler evening air. If youíre worried about your evening wear getting sandy or wet at beach, then place them in a separate bag and leave them in trunk of your car. That way you are guaranteed theyíll remain fresh.
My favorite beach look is this. And whatís perfect is it keeps me looking fashion fresh throughout day and takes me right into evening. First I like a swimsuit thatís got lots of support and is bright and cheerful. I throw a fitted tank on top and throw on a loose flouncy long skirt. The long skirt serves me through evening and also works great to cover up if Iím starting to burn. I choose a lightweight material in a darker color with a pattern that accents colors in my swimsuit. Flip flops are my footwear. Depending on where Iím heading after beach I choose either a basic pair or one of my funky pair with rhinestones or crystals. Easy to walk in, feet breath, and terrific for an evening out. I keep a fitted light weight sweater in my car, and take a long sleeved cotton blouse down to beach. I usually choose a long sleeved and long length blouse because itís versatile. I can knot it to create a short blouse, wear it long as a beach cover, and put it on if I start to burn on my upper body. I usually choose white or a soft pastel depending on my other colors. I like white because itís cool to wear and refreshing to look at. Every year I buy a fun new beach tote thatís big enough for beach but not too big as to take it with me for an evening out. I like a fun bag thatís full of character.
Since I always feel naked without my jewelry I wear fashion jewelry to beach. That way should I loose something I wonít be out a lot of money and I wonít feel so bad. I like to keep earrings simple and elegant. I may or may not wear a necklace. Often Iíll toss a funky wood necklace in bag to add to evening outfit. I like to wear a couple of fashion rings just to add finishing touches. Now if youíre fussy about tan lines youíll probably want to forgo rings. I toss my watch in bottom of my bag so I can put it on later.
Thatís it Ė simple is key. Keep your beach wardrobe choices simple but fashionable. Think ahead so you can go from beach to an evening out without hassle. Remember to always make your fashion statement!
