Here Comes the Sun (Part II)

Helloooo sunshines!
How ya doing?

To be honest, I'm a little confused here. Is spring break over for you guys? Because it's almost over for me, but reading Miss Couturable I found out spring break's about to begin?
So I have decided it's time to focus and finish the second part of my Spring Break Essentials piece, regardless if spring break's over or not. If it's over for you, well then it's still useful, let's just call it "Beach Season's Essentials" or something.

Let's start with the basics.
Your number one essential for the beach? Swim wear.

Even if it's a swimsuit or a bikini, this is the most important thing for obvious reasons.
It's essential to choose a form and color that flatters your body type. There's a wide range of bikini's and swimsuits in style and price.
Go shopping for it with someone who you know will be sincere on how it looks. Pick one which with you feel comfortable and pretty, otherwise you'll be feeling all self-conscious and insecure all day long, therefore you'll be proyecting insecurity.

Once you have your bikini or whatever, start planning your outfit around it. Let your imagination fly...

Sundresses, colorful shorts, denim minis, tops, floral prints, bright colors.
Headbands and head scarves really were the trend here, and I loved it because I have always loved them and used them.
Also, get a big tote where you can carry all your stuff: your towel, a sweater (if weather's like it was here last week), your make-up (tinter moisturizer, cheekstains & stuff we talked about last time), your cellphone, your ipod, sunglasses, a good book.
Whatever you need. I highly recommend taking a bottle of water to stay hydrated.

I threw together this two outfits and I loved them. They're so different, but they're like my two style sides, preppy and couturable-ish, and kinda hippie and urban; colorful.
The first one is so Blair Waldorf, don't you think?

It doesn't matter the style you have, or the trend in fashion, be yourself. Choose the things that suit you and that you identify with.
Choose cheerful accesories. A colorful towel, an unusual necklace.
Have fun with it.
And have fun in the beach.

I gotta run now, sunshines!
Dress shabbily and they remember the dress, dress impeccably and they remember the woman.
Or at least that's what Coco Chanel said.
What do you think?

Infinite x's & o's...
