My dream is to eventually live on the beach; but I would settle for living ten minutes away. Not that I would be in the water every day, because I am the worst swimmer in the world and am quite frankly, terrified of everything that lives in the ocean, especially seaweed. But I love to listen to the waves crashing and lay out in the sand and I feel like it is always such a peaceful, relaxing place to be. We try to visit the beach as much as we possibly can each summer, but no matter how many times we go, it is just never enough. Can you tell I am craving a beach day? Can you also tell I am craving a new bikini and a cool, white cover-up? (Do you now feel like you are reading a children's book - 'Can you find the yellow bird?') I love the idea of throwing on white (or any color really) linen pants with a bikini top or a short, bohemian style dress over a bathing suit. It looks beachy fresh and chic and is appropriate to wear beyond the beach borders. I am torn between both looks as I am loving the more retro cut suits that are rampant these days, but I am always a sucker for a flowy dress, straw bag and bright bikini. Which look do you prefer for the beach - colorful or classy?
