it’s Beach time!

I’ll be off on vacation soon and I’ve been stocking up on vacay “essentials” (you know besides things like travel toothpaste and sunscreen.) 😉  The first trip coming up will be a beach vacay so I’ve been looking for cute sandals and floppy hats!  Here’s some of my faves (and some that are on their way to me). 

I <3 embellished sandals.  Bows and rhinestones, I can’t resist these cutesy sandals.  They will look so cute walking on the beach!

Michael Kors Women’s Nadia Flat Thong Sandal

Yes to floppy hats!  They just scream “beach vacation!” to me whenever I see them.  The plus side is, they keep my face from getting tan and the extra wrinkles that usually come with sitting out on the sun.  Plus, I think they look so chic on!

Any fun summer vacations coming up for you guys?  Tell me! I love hearing where people go on their vacations!

    @Michelle Good question! I actually just bring one hat and I don't pack it. I hold it/wear it the whole time on the airplane. Kind of a pain but at least I don't have a crushed hat when I land 🙂

    The bf and I are heading to Ft. Lauderdale next month. We are both doing the countdown. Not the most exciting destination, but we were seduced by the thought of going anywhere and the really nice looking hotel.

    I love the bows on those Tibi sandals. I just bought a pair of pretty purple Loeffler Randall sandals that I can't wait to wear.

    I went to Bermuda but didn't get to play, got into a scooter moped accidnet on the 2nd day. Stay away from scooters while on vacay. I won't be going on vacay anytime soon, used up all my leave. I've been to St. John, St. Thomas. Those were my faves. Don't forget massive sunblock. I have a floppy hat that I bought I just roll that bad boy up and fluff it when I get to the hotel. Good as new.
    Have fun Tiffany!

    The hubby and I are going to Cabo next month and possibly Antigua for our anniversary in August. I love the BCBG Sandals you posted. I am really into all-white beach looks this season and have a ton of white flowy skirts and dresses as well as several white swimsuits and cover ups. I recently ordered the Jimmy Choo Walta sandals and now I am going to search for a white floppy hat…Great post!

    @whatsanitasdeal oh no Anita! That's terrible, I hope you are okay. I do love St John and St. Thomas, we went last year. My floppy hats never seem to make it out after being rolled in the suitcase. Maybe I need something floppier 🙂

    Those TIBI sandals are precious! But maybe the MK are more practical for beach days? I'm totally with you on floppy hats! Got a straw one at Target recently but looking for a cute black one too.

    As a beach native, snazzy sandals and floppy hats are tots a must! Love the Tibi sandals and Juicy hat. So pretty! Since I can walk to the beach every day (yes it's a fabulous life I lead, lol) my vacations are usually to New York City, Wisconsin, or Philly.

    Have fun in Jamaica!

    Thumbs up for the Aqua floppy hat.

    I admire and respect the fact that you do not knock off other fashion bloggers' styling ideas. You always manage to incorporate a personal touch and transform the outfit to your own.

    Just last week, I noticed two "up and coming" fashion bloggers knocking off an outfit idea from a popular fashion blogger. All within 3 days after the original post. They should have at least given proper credit to the original source. Absence of blogging etiquette.

    Keep up with the good work.

    Bon voyage.
