What I'm wearing this week: Beach Vacay

Jun 29, 2012 - 2 comments

As most of you know I am on vacation with my family this week.  Since I was little we have been going to a quiet, private part of South Padre Island, Texas.  Many people either don't know this place exists or they think of it as only a Spring Break destination for college kids.  But I love it.  It's super hot, the water is warm and clear and the beach is quiet and calm enough for some serious relaxing.

 

Anyways, the night before I left, I didn't get home from work until midnight-ish and hadn't given much thought to packing.  My flight left at 7 am, so my outfit choices were a bit rushed.  Luckily I had some ideas in my head and getting dressed here is super easy.  These are the pieces I have literally been living in this week.

 

1.  Bettini's, Chelsea Bikini.  Purchase here for $138  I am obsessed with these bottoms.  They are teeny tiny with a scrunch-butt (my fave) and super flattering.  I have been wearing these bottoms non-stop with mix and match tops.

2.  Target Mossimo White Bandeau Top: Buy here for $19.99 & Purple Mossimo Twist Bandeau: Buy here for $16.00.  I'm obsessed with inexpensive swimsuit seperates in case you can't tell.  And I love bandeaus so I don't get weird strap tan lines.

3.  Wildfox colored jean shorts: I seriously packed 5 pairs....not joking.  You all know I live in these!

4.  Bettini's Cream Lace Pants: Perfect to easily throw over your swimsuit!  But here for $68

5.  H&M sunglasses: People always mistake these for extremely expensive (when in reality they were $4.99 in store).  They are sadly sold out online

6.  Target Blue Straw Striped Beach Bag: Buy here for $34.99.  I love this one!  It is chic and big enough to fit all of my books/magazines etc.

7.  Nation LTD Pomona Sweatshirt in Salt: Buy here for $94.  I have been wearing this everywear, especially in our condo which is always cold from the blasting AC. Those of you that know me, know that I wear this sweatshirt all the time...even when not on vacation.

8.  T-Strap Sandals in Orange from Old Navy: Buy here for $15.00.  These are great because they are bright and super inexpensive so I can use them non-stop this trip and not worry about them getting worn out by the beach.

 

I also threw in a few simple tanks and some bright loose tops to throw on with the jean shorts when we actually go somewhere besides the beach.

 

Hope all of you had a great week!  I am back to reality on Saturday evening and normal blogging/work will resume next week.  Have a great weekend everyone.

Sooooo obsessed with the lace pants! How adorable to wear over your bikini when you’re headed to the beach! You’re making me want to go on vacation just so I can get them!
