beach day to night

This may sound a bit odd as I'm pretty sure we'd all love to go home and shower before dinner after spending the day at the beach, but sometimes, things happen and it's always nice to be prepared. I know there have been plenty of times over the years where I end up running odd errands on my way home or rushing to get ready as quickly as possible for an impromptu dinner. JD would be happy as a clam to be wearing board shorts in either scenario, but I like to feel a bit more put together, and less covered in sunscreen. An outfit that could make the transition from the beach to dinner might help. This dress would look just as cute on the beach as it would on a stroll through the city. To help it along I'd add a bold necklace, metallic sandals, and a tiny striped bag to hold the essentials (that could easily be tucked inside your beach bag during the day). And I need to address how much I love this red and white striped swimsuit. It has that retro feel, and kind of reminds me of this famous shot of Grace Kelly, mostly due to the style and blanket matching stripes.


  1. I've definitely been in situations where I haven't gotten to run home before going out after a beach day and I agree, it's nice to feel like you look put together! Loving this look! That dress is so great for summer!
