Do you believe in beach chic?

This week, we had a warm spell in San Francisco. The weather is so confused as the last 2 weeks we've been covered in rain. In fact, today I left my scarves at home as I watched the fog roll away and sun peer through. Which made me want to go to the beach like I used to when I lived in L.A. Ah beach chic is a wonderful way of dressing for the sun. Cover ups, hats, sunglasses and necklaces have become apart of the trends. So remove your winter coat and come along for a beach day...



These are fabulous beachy colors that would look amazing packing a picnic lunch, swimming or laying out. Pale color is a great way to go unless you want to play matchy with your swimsuit.

I always pose like this when I'm in the water on a photo shoot? Don't you?

This bag is not for the quiet or meek. Just throw on some sunglasses, a hat and you are all set to go for beach chic trends.

If I was staying in Florida this would be the chic kind of place I'd like to stay. It's clean lines and pleasing colors would encourage me to open the windows to hear the ocean.

What happens when your dressed in your beach fashion and want to take a dip in the water? Do you take it all off or dip your feet in the water? Maybe beach chic is just for pictures then.

Who snapped this picture of me without getting my permission? So today if you are covered in snow and cold, I hope these chic beach trends warmed you up a little. It will all be over soon. I promise sweetie! Now, I just can't seem to keep the sand out of my beach bag. What's your favorite part of dressing beach chic?

Great post! Need to see signs of spring right now. You had me chuckling a few times with your comments.
Something that I look foward to when beach season rolls around are taking out the stylish cover-ups and sarongs and shopping for fabulous sunglasses. Should probably start that now though, shouldn't I? Anyway, thanks for the sunshine!

Love the little blue and white shift dress. Maybe add a great looking sun hat. Must keep it simple at the beach.
