Happy Friday loves!!
I hope you’re all ready for some R&R this weekend- I know I am!
Today’s post features my new favorite bikini which has ALL the features that I absolutely love- the high waist cut, lace up style, stripe pattern, bright colors- everything! I’m wearing a size small in both top and bottom pieces. The top is a bit too tight because I do have a broad back, but I was worried that the medium would be too big as my cup size is small. However, the small bottom is perfect for that cheeky look! 😉 The brightly multicolored bikini screams ‘Summertime is here!’
I paired the bikini with this beautiful beach blanket which I absolutely adore!! From the pattern, print and colors, this blanket is a must for the summer season! I received several compliments on this one 🙂 I have to be honest, the material is not the best quality- it’s as thin as brown cotton, but the lightweight material makes for easy packing and a light load when you have to consider all the items required for a beach run (towel/s, sunscreen, water, book, etc.).
Of course I had to get on board the straw beach tote train as it’s all the trend for 2019! This uniquely crafted chic piece is exactly what I’ve been looking for all spring, and I finally found it at such an affordable price! The bag itself is not your regular beach bag, it’s great for small items and I’ve used it as more of a beach handbag/accessory to place sunglasses, a book, beach blanket (the lightweight material is perfect for folding into this bag!), sunscreen, wallet and keys. The tote is open and has no zipper/clasp, so do consider this if you decide to buy it. For some people, an open bag is not secure and can be the deciding factor on whether to buy or not, as weather conditions or possibility of theft is always a risk.
Finally, no trip to the beach is complete without a sun hat! I recently bought this floppy hat and I am so pleased with the coverage it provides! The black and white colors are basic which I did consider before buying, as any swimsuit can be paired with it, and I thought the label ‘Vitamin Sea’ is so clever and witty!
