What I’m Wearing Wednesday: Beach Edition

Hey girlfriends! This weeks post features styles from a quick 4-day-3-night beach trip I just took with my own girlfriends 🙂 We had some funky weather – alternating between normal hot and sticky beach temps to monsoon-like conditions, so I had to prepare.

At this stage in the game I know myself well, I tend to over pack. I pack too many “dressy” things and not enough “comfy” things. I wanted to fix that this trip. On a 4 day trip, it was likely that I’d “dress-up” (ie wear something suitable for a nice dinner OR for going to a club 2 nights, at the MOST). I tried/decided on outfits a week in advance, when I actually had the time to think about it, because when the time came, I couldn’t actually finally pack my suitcase until the morning of. Fortunately the rainy/chilly day we had for one of the days was forecast a week in advance and I planned for that as well. I packed a duffel for my clothes, and a beach bag with my swimsuits/towels, and along with my purse, that’s all I needed!

Here’s what I wore:
