Despite a less than fabulous start to a summer full of classes and work days, a mini vacation fell into my lap at the best possible time. I knew this was worth a new summer outfit, so I set out to put together the easiest beach look for a hot, hot, hot day on the North Carolina coast.
To tackle 95 degrees plus the combination of wind and humidity, I grabbed a lightweight romper in white to bring out my tan (well, sunburn). My sheer kimono is great for an added pop without the extra weight. This is a recipe for equal parts comfortable and stylish. (Not featured: the outtakes of my attempt at controlling my clothes against the wind.)
Any opportunity to wear these tassel earrings must be taken advantage of. Mine are from Express, but this Rebecca Minkoff pair is gorgeous. Low-heeled sandals are my go-to vacation shoes—they’re so comfortable and go with everything! Don’t forget a statement bag and a pair of sunglasses that will protect your eyes from harmful rays.
There is no better way to refresh halfway through the summer than getting to the coast and swapping the textbooks out for sunscreen. Throw a great photo shoot spot and an easy day-to-night look into the mix and your vacation is perfect! I’ll be checking days off of my calendar until summer school is out and the real vacation starts. Until then, I’ll be planning my next beach ensemble in between pop quizzes.
