I don't have any beach trip plans this summer. While I normally don't care for the beach, I'm really craving it right now.
For someone like me, there's usually not much to offer at a beach. I am self conscious, and I'm too pasty to ever tan properly. Most of my experiences at the beach include burning like hell the first day, and then sitting underneath an umbrella with a gallon of aloe for the rest of the trip.
But I don't know. There's the warmth. There's the salt water, slowly adding highlights to my brown hair. And my favorite part is the food, particularly fresh lobster and salt water taffy.
I haven't been to the beach for ages. It's been five years, I think. But a beach getaway would be swell right about now.
Anyway, I've been trying to stray from black and white in my wardrobe because it's something it's a simple go-to color scheme I often find myself wearing. But for the beach, I think black and white could be fun, and a contrast from what most people would be wearing at the beach: Bright colors, florals, animal prints.
For now, I'll be taking a little beach getaway in my mind, maybe with a fresh desktop background.
What are some of your favorite beach wear staples?
