Chic and Easy Beach Style

by Figandrosesblog

Every year I pack for the beach and end up packing WAY too much. Every year I come home and say I will never do that again. But, you never know what you will need right? (wink) Does anyone else do this?? My hubby literally waits until the hour before we leave, throws a couple of things in his suitcase and calls it a day. What can I say - I love clothes! Nevertheless, I am always striving to improve and reduce my packing. After seeking packing perfection - here is my BEST advice for how to have chic and easy beach outfits: pick a few dressier pieces and pair with cute but casual basics that you will wear on repeat.

Case in point:

Black off-the shoulder top + white denim shorts + black flat sandals

Shop the top:

This cute top from Amazon easily dresses up these white shorts and my favorite Steve Madden sandals for a night out. I love that I can look chic yet be super comfortable - perfect for dinner out and a sunset stroll on the beach. This under $20 top can also be paired with a flowy maxi skirt (already in the bag) or denim. I love how versatile it is. Don't forget we're trying to maximize our packing space and re-use items throughout the week!

Thoughts I ponder at the beach - why does my natural hair look so amazing here? I have tried to battle the curls but have inevitably surrendered to the humidity and salt. I actually love how my hair gets so full and curly. So, I leave it go and dab a little bit of hair oil on it looks frizzy.

These pics make me want to take a beach trip ASAP! Take a peek and follow me on my blog here, my insta here, or find all my outfits linked on Shopstyle here. Happy Shopping babes!
