Summer Fun with Pineapples

With summer slowly approaching, the beach vibes just keep getting stronger! One of my favorite parts of summer is the different vacations that we go on. Sometimes we travel south to Florida and stay on the beach and other times we just spend a weekend at our favorite lake, either way it’s relaxing and always a good time!

My favorite part about going on vacation is buying new clothes to take with me. I have recently gained quite the collection for pineapple clothing and accessories! I guess you could say I’m obsessed but I cannot wait to pack up all my favorite pineapple items for vacation!

My top 5 favorite pineapple items:

  1. Pineapple Dad Hat
  2. Sunnylife Pineapple Float

  4. Southern Shirt Co Pineapple Shirt
  5. Jadelynn Brooke Pineapple Fanny Pack

Sizzling Summer | What’s In Your Beach Bag?

Summer is in full force, and I am ready to hit the beach! Aren’t you? I’ve got my beach bag packed, and I’m ready to go.

The Beach Bag

The #1 beach essential is a great bag, so grab your largest tote, ladies! The bigger the bag, the more essentials you can take with you. My beach bag has all of my go-to items for some fun in the sun, plus more. My handmade straw tote is perfect for the beach because I can shake the pesky sand out of it once I am done.

Beach Towel

Don’t forget your beach towel! Remember, the bigger the towel the better. You want to make sure your beach towel provides enough room for you and your essentials, so sand doesn’t get on your most valuable items.

Sizzling Summer

Flip Flops

Flips Flops are a definite must-have for the beach. The sand can be very hot and you’ll want to protect your feet. Also, you never know what could be in the sand. You want to avoid any cuts and bruises as much as possible.

Denim Shorts

Shorts are always nice to have on the beach. When you’re done lying out and it’s time to run to the hotel, just slip on your favorite denim cutoffs.

Hat

Fedoras and floppy hats are always nice to have with you on the beach. Blocking those harmful UV rays from your face is always important.

Sunglasses

Show off your personality with your favorite sunglasses. Sunglasses are the perfect accessory for the beach because not only do they complement every swim suit, they also protect your eyes from the sun.

Sunscreen

My favorite sunscreen to use is Sun Bum. They have multiple products that protect your skin and hair from the harsh sun and they smell amazing! Being sunburned is the worst, so I would use at least a 50+ SPF to avoid getting burnt.

Entertainment

Don’t forget to grab your favorite magazines when lying out! I never get bored with my trusty People and Marie Claire magazines to catch up on the celebrity drama and get the scoop on the latest fashion trends! Music is a very important part of a great beach experience too. I know my cellphone has all my favorite music on it, so all I have to do is pack my headphones to jam out on the beach. Cellphones also take great photos. Be sure to capture all the fun with your family and friends to share on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

beach bag essentials Water

Make sure you stay hydrated while hanging out on the beach all day! Drink plenty of water and make sure you avoid dehydration.

Snacks

Don’t let hunger ruin your good time! Bring a protein bar or fruit with you to the beach as a healthy snack.

Spring Break Essentials

Weekends Out

Honestly, this past weekend was the first weekend in a long time that I have felt okay with leaving my jacket hung up in my closet at home. To say the least, I literally skipped down my stairs and into the street like a kid. Childish, I know.

I am completely okay with admitting my excitement over summer, sun, swimming, my developing tan, being outside, and most importantly, weekend road trips!  We’re just two weeks shy of Memorial Day weekend people! This holiday is where families and groups of friends travel to beaches, lake houses and campgrounds for barbecues, boating, daylong golf outings, and fairs.

So with the return of the sun, its warmth and the much-welcomed showing of skin, it’s time to give your wardrobes an upgrade!

Beach Action.

The first thing I think of when it comes to Memorial Day weekend is swimming. So no matter where you go, be sure to have your cutest bikini packed with a few necessities. I’ve chosen this super cute crochet fringe flyaway sweater from Oracle Fox for Billabong, the Trinity destructed cutoff shorts from Silver Jeans Co, and partnered them with a chic fedora, some braided jute sandals, and finished the look with a colorful tribal print beach bag to store your beach essentials.

Afternoon Out.

Being that I am a HUGE fan of all things fringe right now AND colored denim, I thought it would be cute to partner this boho chic Belize fringe top from Jack by BB Dakota with a bright pair of orange Flying Monkey jeggings. If you’re out on an afternoon shopping spree with the girls or a grill out with the fam, an easy way to accessorize is with a pair of retro wayfarer sunglasses, some Pura Vida bracelets. To add some sass try tying up your hair with a cute printed scarf.

Down on the Boardwalk.

So you may have had a long day out in the sun and a shower is out of the question until your new tan has had a chance to set in for a few more hours. That’s okay. Take it from the beach to the street just by slipping into the BB Dakota Dora dress and let its soft striped jersey knit set your sun exposed skin free. Keep it stylishly simple with a pair of platform wedges and sunglasses, and set your style savvy apart with a neon crossbody bag.

 

Remember that it’s the weekend and bringing your WHOLE wardrobe isn’t necessary. Resort town = SHOPPING heaven, and you need room in your suitcase for all of your new fashion finds. Look for any of these fab items online at gliks.com or visit a Glik’s store location nearest to you!
