When I first moved near the ocean five years ago, I literally had no idea what to wear when I went down to the beach.
It seems silly, but only a few months before we moved here, we visited the beach and I wore a tee and a maxi skirt over my swimsuit. I felt cute, but then it was in the way and got wet and heavy, and it was just a mess.
So today I’m teaming up with American Eagle Outfitters sharing two easy looks for the beach, but would definitely be perfect for the pool too!
First up, a romper.
I love a good romper, and I’m obsessed with this BLUE RUFFLE ROMPER from American Eagle. It’s flirty and cute, and super lightweight so you’ll stay nice and cool. I also love that it has sleeves so your shoulders stay protected on the beach!
And a one-and-done piece is the best kind at the beach. It just feels effortless and easy.
The romper runs big, so size down — I’m in a small and should have sized down to an XS.
With a pair of ESPADRILLE SNEAKERS, you can wear this to walk around on the boardwalk, grab some lunch, and then pull off your sneakers for an afternoon on the sand.
Use a Button Down as a Coverup!
I paired it with this cute WHITE EYELET ONE PIECE SWIMSUIT and the combo of white and blue is just perfect for a breezy beach day.
Oh, and these BOW SANDALS are basically the cutest things ever, and add a little bit of femininity to your easy beach look.
There are tons of great sales going on at American Eagle Outfitters this week — Memorial day sales start today and go all week through Wednesday the 30th!
