I will admit, the beach is not one of my favourite places. I despise the feeling of sand sticking to me, and being wet usually means being cold as well. And it doesn’t help that my hair takes almost a full day to dry after swimming! However, I’m not a Scrooge when it comes to the beach– and actually, I’m looking forward to my first trip there now that it’s unofficially summer! The following Polyvore set is something I’d love to wear to the beach; it’s functional, classic, and beautifully ’40s-inspired!
Swimdress swimsuit / Vintage shoes / Madewell straw handbag / YooLa pearl stud earrings / Hermès red silk scarve / Green lens glasses
A cute and feminine halter-neck swimsuit sets the tone for this vintage-look outfit, and contrasts wonderfully with the more rustic aura of the straw tote bag and woven leather sandals. Pearl earrings and a very fetching Hermes scarf lend the polished look that every ’40s outfit needs, and the final touch of round vintage sunglasses is ideal for a day at the beach. If only I had an outfit like this one to wear, I’d be at the beach in a heartbeat!!
