Easy Tropical Beach Style

[the day before we left for Miami Beckam and Mio were running after B’s ball at the same time and Mio’s leg flew up and accidentally hit B in the face and he face planted it. He got his first bloody nose and fat lip 🙁 ]


Beautiful destinations are one of my favorite sources of inspiration. There is nothing better than being barefoot in the sand with the family. Dressing with a tropical beach in mind is a sure fire way to nail a perfect summer look beyond your go-to tanks and boyfriend cut-offs. One of my favorite summer styles is the off-the-shoulder style – I just added this dress (under $30) from Nordstrom Rack to my collection and can already tell it will be on repeat this season. I especially love the bright blue, a color that always reads ‘island getaway’ to me. I also love it in this color which pairs flawlessly with a nice tan.

To add interest to a look, especially a staple like a solid sun dress (and to be prepared for an afternoon rain storm or restaurants blasting AC), a light jacket is key. A washed-out denim jacket is one of my favorites for summer since it’s both lightweight and versatile – I love the way it pairs with a summer dress for a casual effect. Tie it around your waist for an equally summery (and cool) vibe. Love the wash of this one too. Top it off with a sun hat (this cute one is under $20), sunglasses and gladiator sandals, and all that’s missing is your ticket to an island getaway 😉

    Ok so your son might be the most precious child ever & I am loving his “bro tank” and jean shorts! He looks like a suave little Cali boy! Also, I may or may not be obsessing over those amazing sunglasses! So chic and I enjoy the fact the tortoise pattern is actually visible at a distance and its not just all dark brown. Thank you for sharing this post!
