Beach attire is one of my favorite styles to shop for. I love seeing all the new summer trends each year & investing in swimsuits, clothing, sandals & accessories that will last us all year long! My family & I live close to the beach, so beachwear is something we wear daily during the summer. One thing I don’t think people always realize about the beach is you can literally wear anything! When we lived in Arizona and would visit California I always felt like I had to be in a swimsuit whether I was cold or hot, haha! There are many days I’m in lounge pants and a sweatshirt #alwayscold. When I look around I see plenty of locals also bundled up and all the visitors wishing they were warm:) That being said, we love buying clothing for the beach that is cute, practical and will last through the summer!
What To Wear To The Beach
The amount of cute swimsuits out there right now is overwhelming. There are SO many cute styles out, Avery, Poppy & I want them all. We love this TIE FRONT ONE PIECE from Urban! It comes in 4 cute prints. I can’t get over this EYELET BIKINI TOP. The lace is beautiful & I love the unique sleeves. This BANDEAU PRINTED BIKINI TOP & BOTTOMS from Free People have the cutest ties in the back. The floral pattern of this BEACH RIOT ONE PIECE is adorable & Beach Riot swimwear always has the best fit!
Finding the perfect cover-up for your swimwear is the best hunt! There are so many different options when it comes to what you can wear over your swimsuit at the beach!
I love a good dress as a cover-up.
They’re light & easy to slip on and off. This TIE DYE SHIRT DRESS is super cute. I love the maxi fit & how it can be dressed up or down. I love this white THINKING OUT LOUD DRESS from Free People. This would pair so well with some cute SANDALS & a BEACH HAT. One of my favorite dress finds is this IN THE MOMENT DRESS. It comes in a few different colors & is so, so beautiful!
I swear by my LEVI SHORTS and so do my girls.
These are perfect to throw on when you leave the beach for a lunch break!Tip, I go up 2 sizes to avoid them being too short. My kids like them reeeeaaalll short. I think the red & white stripes on these HIGH RISE SHORTS are super cute! I love this MAKE WAVES TEE & this SURFER GIRL TEE.

Sunglasses may arguably be one of your most important beach necessities! I love these DIFF CARSON SUNNIES. They come in tortoise & black. These PHOENIX METAL ROUND GLASSES and they’re only $18! I also love these CRUZ AVIATORS!
