WHAT TO WEAR: Vacation

With Memorial Day behind us, beach season is on the way! Long Beach is a popular vacation spot for the summer with the main attraction being the beach. While vacationing on the beach, you want to be comfortable while still looking your best. Since you are going to be in the sun, walking around and being outdoors, it is best to wear something lightweight that won’t make you too hot during your day outside.

This Fashionista is the perfect example of what to wear for a beach vacation. Her white cover-up goes great with her colorful bandeau-style swimsuit. Wearing a dress as a cover-up is a great way to take your beach look from casual to cute with minimal effort. This is the perfect look for the beach—it is cute, comfortable and lightweight. When going on vacation, no look is complete without a great pair of sunglasses; this Fashionista is rocking a pair of Ray-Bans. When you’re going to be outside all day on the windy beach, you might want your hair out of your face. As opposed to a ponytail or headband, play up the beach scene and pull your hair back with a starfish clip.

While on vacation or a day trip to the beach, you need a bag to keep all of your stuff! This Fashionista puts a twist on the classic beach bag and uses a neon-colored backpack. This is not only great for holding all the things you’ll need for a day at the beach, but also adds a fun pop of color to her outfit!

One Simple Change: By pairing this cover-up with a pretty strappy sandal or wedge, you can take your day-time beach look and change it to an outfit ready for an evening barbecue.
