[AD] I’m sure I’m not the only one that is longing for a bit of sun now and I for one can’t wait for Mr Sunshine to show his face so that we can make the most of the great outdoors and hit the beach.
Over the years my beachwear choices have certainly changed and a trip to the beach with my brood requires a pack horse rather than a nifty little bach bag. However this doesn’t mean you have to compromise on style and with the help of Simply Beach I have compiled a wish list of items that I would like to see me though the summer.
Swimsuit – I am well past the days of wearing a bikini on the beach which I am perfectly happy with to be honest. There is such a great range of swimsuits available now that they can look just as stylish as a bikini whilst allowing you to have a little more confidence by covering the areas you might not be so happy with.
Tummy control swimsuits have been my best friend for a while now and this Lush Lanai Pin Up Swimsuit is definitely on my list.
Cover Ups – A good cover up is essential for me to shield myself from the hot sun and to quickly whip on when you need a trip to grab a bite to eat. I have fallen in love with this Melissa Odabash Maxi Dress that offers great coverage as well as looking effortlessly cool.
Beach Bags – Of course a good beach bag is a must and mine needs to be big enough to fit swimmer, snacks and all the other paraphernalia that comes with a big family. I love a classic basket style bag that can be filled to the brim whilst still looking great. My top pick for this summer is the Seafolly Oversized Beach Basket that has a classic design with pretty detailing in the twisted handles and tassel.
Flip Flops – Last but not least is footwear which for me on a trip to the beach need to be easy to slip on an off and waterproof as the little ones spend the majority of the time up and down for dips in the sea, walking along the seafront and not so glamorous toilet trips. These Vix Solid Flip Flops are the perfect, lightweight shoe for any beach trip.
I hope I’ve given you a little inspiration for those warmer months ahead and I would love to know your go to pieces for the summer.
