With Memorial Day just around the corner, it's (finally!) that time of year when you head to the beach or the pool to enjoy the warm weather and summertime activities! You can resist the temptation to throw on shorts and a ratty tee shirt over your favorite bikini- there are so many cute options out there for coverups, comfy flat sandals, and of course, fun accessories. Maybe wearing a statement necklace is more acceptable in the South of France than South Carolina, but we still think there is something here for everyone!
We just love this white terry Salome dress from Tory Burch with navy trim. It is super comfortable and perfect to throw on over your swimsuit when you run in for lunch at the club. How perfect is it with this navy TB bikini and gold sandals? For a punch of color, we'd accessorize with a coral KJL bracelet and this punchy Kate Spade Clementine tote.
How fun is this Michael Kors zebra bikini!! The style looks quite flattering, and the print is so much glamorous! We'd add a turquoise necklace (this one is from KJL), and this turquoise tote from Kate Spade. Classic Ray Ban aviators are our favorites (the MoS girls love theirs). And mix and match with some less expensive pieces like this white caftan and these gold sandals from Old Navy!
If a one-piece is more your speed, we are in love with this maillot from Missoni. The pattern is a classic, and the style will make your legs look like they are a mile long! Once again, we are adding in some affordable pieces like this comfy green dress and brown embellished flat sandals from Old Navy. The coral pendant necklace is from KJL, and the rattan tote is from Kate Spade.
We love the soothing greens and turquoises of this look! The Lilly Pulitzer Brooke Shields caftan is from her new charity line (one of the only cute pieces from that line, in our opinion). It's perfect over this JCrew ruffle bandeau bikini (sidenote- Rugged Wearhouse is a great resource for last-season JCrew swimwear for about $5 per swimsuit. If you have a RW in your town, check it out!). We love the seafoam green canvas tote and the silver flower flip flops to complete the look. And how fab are these Chloe translucent sunglasses?!
This look is for a glamorous girl! The black JCrew ruffle keyhole maillot is a classic you can wear for years. If we told you this pink and red leopard print beach towel was Cavalli, would you believe us? (it's really from Old Navy). If you are sunbathing in a glamorous location, we'd add this fun chunky coral necklace from KJL. This Tory Burch tote with black patent trim and these black patent Lilly sandals finish off the outfit!
