WHAT TO WEAR: Vacation

Now that summer is in full swing, it’s time to break out those big sunglasses, cute bathing suits and the sunblock. Going to a university that is right by the beach and ocean gives you tons of opportunities to pack up the car filled with a bunch of friends and spend the day taking in some rays. Summer vacation is all about relaxing, enjoying the warm days and spending the nice weather with friends and family. Your clothing during this time should reflect just that, which means more relaxed and flowy looks.

My go-to beach look always starts with a cute cover up. I’m in love with this one from Francesca’s! The scalloped detailing on the sleeves and the bottom of the dress are perfect detailing on a plain white dress. Plus, the open top shows just enough of your cute bathing suit underneath.

Cute sunglasses are a summer must-have. I love these Ray-Bans! Besides their original purpose of blocking the bright sun, they look super cute. Also, these nude and neutral Jack Rogers are amazing. They are hard to break in at first, but after a few days of breaking them in, they are also a summer must. And how could you forget about a big beach bag? The bright yellow color of this bag adds a pop of color to a more neutral look.

Most importantly, don’t forget about the sunblock this summer!

One Simple Change: This look is so versatile! After going to the beach, dinner by the water is always a must. To change this look from beach to dinner, try adding a nude slip under the dress and adding bright lips, to add a pop of color to the look.
