Summer Style Must-Haves

The kids are out of school and it’s time to enjoy some fun in the sun.  Whether you’re heading to the beach for a staycation or just hanging out by the pool, here are some must-haves to keep you looking your best this summer.

Swimsuit Cover-ups:

This Lily Pulitzer cover-up from Pink Palm is fun and perfect for the beach.  The embroidered detail and fun pink tassels will help you stand out from the crowd.

If you’re a boater, try this sporty Sail to Sable cover-up from Ship Chic.  It’s got SPF protection built into the fabric!

I love this lightweight Macbeth Collection romper from DKM Accessories paired with the India Hicks flamingo clutch with tassel…  perfect for a sunset dinner on the beach!

Sun Hats:

As we know, it’s important to protect your face and neck from the harsh effects of the sun, especially if you want to grow old gracefully.  A giant sun hat is not only functional, but stylish!  Go subtle with the medium sized Roxy hat from Surf Outfitters or go dramatic with the XL hat from Sara’s Karma Chic.

I think we can all agree that the right sunglasses can make or break an outfit.  It can be overwhelming to select the right pair for your face.  You have to kiss a lot of frogs before finding your prince, so don’t settle for a pair of sunglasses until they fit just right.  I know Aviators are awesome, but I love the above styles because, when needed, they can double as a headband without ripping your hair out…lol!

 Beach Bags:

This Charlie Paige bag from Sara’s Karma Chic is great because it packs away nicely when travelling, and when it’s time to tote all the goods down to the water, it fits everything you need!

Maybe it’s the high school cheerleader in me, but I am all about this Mar Y Sol small straw tote with pom-poms from Ship Chic.  It’s just the right size and packs a lot of style!

No matter what you wear this summer, remember to have a great time with friends and family!  Enjoy this beautiful place we live in… Tampa is gorgeous!  It may be a little too hot sometimes, but people flock from all over the world to enjoy our weather and visit our beaches.  When it comes to summer fashion, function is king… but style is always next in line for the throne!
