Beach Essentials

As I continue on with my excitement that Spring draws near I have to tell you that we booked our tickets for our little family Spring break vacation.  We are going to the beach.  The beach is really the best vacation with a little one.  Its relaxing for everyone because between the sand, the waves, and the pool, the kiddos almost entertain themselves while we sip on tropical drinks and get a tan...ahhhhhh!!  So this got me thinking about my wardrobe.  I don't really need anything, except some bathing suits.  But, if I were really needing to make an investment for beach wear this is what I'm thinking.

I really love this girly and sexy cover-up from Island Company.  I hadn't heard of them before but am really liking their summer dresses, cover-ups, and tunics.  Their style is very classic and preppy at the same time.  They have the kind of stuff that will be in style for years to come.   Of course, since we need a suit to go swimming on this vacation I just needed to add some Mara Hoffman.  She is the queen of prints and her suits just kill me.  Oh so fabulous!  Add some cute baubles from my new fave jewelry store Gold and Gray, and a big straw tote to carry all the beach toys and sun screens and voila! you are ready for a stylish beach day.

Of course I needed just one more beach look.  I can't leave you just with one, now can I?  I'm a girl who loves ruffles, I do.  I have a couple of Club Monaco skirts I bought like 10 years ago with little ruffles that I still wear almost everyday come summer time.  I'm sure everyone is tired of seeing them.  So, naturally, when I saw this cute dress I thought it looked just like me....add those cute earrings and some matching sandals and you will be the star of beach.

Any plans for Spring break?  Or beach outings?  Do tell?
