Vacation - Beachin' it!

A beach vacation in a tropical locale calls for lots of beachwear and this girl loves her swimsuits! I opted for bold colours, prints and flowy cover-ups for this trip. I don't think any beach or pool-side look is complete without a statement piece, whether that be a cute hat, mirrored sunnies or a Grecian cover-up. I even like to accessorize with statement earrings and headbands or hair-ties. A cute beach bag is a must to tote around all the daily essentials such as sunscreen, reading material, water bottle, snacks, mini first-aid kit (yes, I'm that person!) and towel.

Let's dive-in, shall we? I wore a different beach look every day last week, but didn't get around to taking pictures of all of them, I was on vacation after all! I did manage to find you a few looks to post. First up is this white and blue outfit. I loved the sailboat print of this sarong (as showed in this post) and thought I'd let it take center stage by pairing it with a white bikini. I added a striped headband and blue statement earrings to add interest. A swipe of red lipstick and I was all set!

Next up was probably my favourite vacation look. This flowy cover-up is amazing! I felt like a Grecian goddess all day! It's sheer, light-weight and fabulous! I really felt like a million bucks wearing this and it was actually a super affordable find at my local Forever 21. Go figure! There are plenty of really cute cover-up options out there so there is no reason not to stock up. Summer is just around the corner! I paired it with a colourful turquoise print bikini I've had for years and I absolutely love how it just refreshed an old swim suit.

The following look was so bright and colourful it made me smile all day long! I wore a bold yellow bikini with a tribal-print cover-up. I went whole hog and added the pompom straw hat and fuchsia flip flops. Go bold or go home! This is the time to wear all the colourful things and really knock it out of the park. The tropical weather and easy-breezy vibe let you get away with being so fun and statement-making!

Last, but not least, is the gone-completely-wild look! Just when you thought I couldn't wear anything bolder than the previous look, I bust out the matching swimsuit/cover-up set! This is not your grandma's sweater set, this is the ultimate take on matchiness. I got this combo a few years ago a still love it as much as the day I got it. You can't help but look like you've got you sh*t together in this look. It screams total control and in charge of her life! Just because you're on vacation, doesn't mean you can't bring it style wise! This was my last beach look and I think it was the perfect cherry on top of the sundae. I went out with a bang!
