What To Wear To The Beach In Spring
It was fun spending a few days at the beach, but I need time to recover now. Isn’t it funny how a vacation can wear you out? I’m horrible at remembering to take photos of what I’m doing or wearing, and I even took a small tripod with me. I did manage to get a few photos, so here is what to wear to the beach in spring.
Traveling To The Beach In Spring
You might live at the beach, but for those like me who have to travel several hours to get there, here is what I wore on this trip.
Our car ride to the beach was only five hours, but that can seem like an eternity when traffic is terrible. A five-hour trip quickly turns into a seven-hour one when you get caught in a traffic jam, stop for food, and take a bathroom break. I wore this Black Short-Sleeve V-Neck Romper, which feels almost as soft as the SPANX Air Essentials line.
This romper is soft, casual, comfortable, and flattering. I loved it so much when I bought it that I immediately ordered it in deep teal.
I always travel in my jewelry; it makes me feel put together. I love the Black Leather Freshwater Pearl Lariat Necklace and Wrap Bracelets from the Freshwater Pearl Company. The lariat necklace only has a few in stock, so if that is something that you like, put it in your cart now. Use the code Tania15 for 15% off your entire purchase.
What To Wear To The Beach For Breakfast
The beach is casual and laid back. Many restaurants are on the beach, and you will see people in swimsuits and coverups. Since breakfast is usually early, I try to dress in a casual and comfortable outfit.
Joe wanted to grab breakfast, so I quickly threw on this European Linen Square Neck Jumpsuit with a white Washed Linen Jacket. Makeup was optional, but clothing wasn’t. Lol!
The linen jumpsuit is from Quince. Quince is quickly becoming one of my favorite retailers to shop. The products are of excellent quality, and the prices are reasonable. They also have free shipping and a 365-day return policy!
What To Wear To The Beach For A Night Out
I’m not a spring chicken anymore, so staying out until the wee hours of the morning isn’t on my to-do list. However, I do like to go out and eat while I’m at the beach. This gives me a chance to dress up and put on some makeup.
I wore this blue Short-Sleeve Shirt Dress to dinner one night, and I was shocked that Joe loved it. He likes me in shorter dresses, but since this one is loose and doesn’t touch me anywhere, I didn’t think he would like it. While we were at the restaurant, a lady and her husband were leaving, and she walked over and complimented me on my hair. They were so nice, and we talked for a long time. Yesterday she emailed me to ask about the shirtdress I was wearing. I was surprised that she and my husband noticed such a simple dress.
The Cork Tote from Lilly Pulitzer is beautiful. I love the gold trim around the edges and the bamboo handles. It’s very lightweight, and I think it is perfect for spring and summer.
What To Wear To The Beach For Lunch
When I’m at the beach, I often opt for something from the pool bar. They usually have sandwiches, burgers, and hotdogs, but if you want something different, you need to go to a restaurant,
I was surprised that I liked this fun, whimsical jumpsuit. You can adjust the straps to fit you, and I love how the mocked top stopped at the thinnest part of my body. This is similar to an empire waist which is usually flattering for most people.
The back has smocking so that the jumpsuit fits nicely.
It was extremely windy, so I made sure to wear my Modern Utility Jacket from J. Jill. I did a J. Jill Try On Haul Of Spring Styles, which featured this jacket, and I couldn’t decide if I needed it. Finally, I ordered the jacket, and I’m so glad I did.
The jacket is lightweight, and I wore it with almost everything while I was at the beach. It was just enough protection from the wind and kept me warm without being hot and heavy.
What To Wear To The Beach For Date Night
I asked for recommendations on where to eat at North Myrtle Beach, and Snooky’s was the response with the most votes.
You can tell by the look on Joe’s face that he loved the food. This was all his food, PLUS he also had a dozen Oyster’s Rockefeller. Lol! Snooky’s was great but very loud. The only other issue was that the kitchen closes at 9 pm. Joe and I are late eaters, and we barely got our order in before they closed.
This is the only photo I got of the two of us. Joe was trying to take a picture of me, but it wasn’t going well. I told him to strike a pose and took a few photos of him to show him what I wanted. A lady came running over and said, “Here, let me take y’alls photos.” She was so sweet, and I appreciated her getting one of us together.
What I Wore To Meet One Of The Gurls
I met up with Dawn, one of the Gurls living in North Myrtle Beach. She was so gorgeous and sweet as could be. She laughed and told me you would have thought she was meeting George Clooney since she was so stressed about what to wear. I told her it was just as stressful on my end since everyone expects me to look like I stepped out of a fashion magazine.
I wanted to look nice but comfortable. These Linen Blend Cuffed high-rise suit shorts came in right before I left for the beach, so I decided to wear them. I love these shorts! They fit so nicely and look gorgeous. They are dressy since they have large cuffs but can still be worn casually.
I wanted to add dressy accessories, and the Pearl Dangle Earrings, Freshwater Pearl Stretch Bracelet (Black), and the Black Stretch Raffia Belt elevated the look. I also added the lightweight, washed linen jacket since restaurants can be chilly. We ended up sitting on the patio, and the weather was nice and warm.
Honestly, I rarely carry a black handbag, but this Black Italian Leather Woven Tote from Quince might change my mind. You have probably noticed that woven handbags are a big trend, but most are faux leather. I don’t mind faux leather, but the prices of these bags can still be crazy high. This one is Italian leather and is less expensive than most of the faux ones I’ve seen.
I knew the diagonal stripes would be flattering; everyone else must have thought so too. This tank is completely sold out, so I’ll link to other tops I would wear with this outfit.
The last night we were at the beach, I wore this AirEssentials Jumpsuit with the Modern Utility Jacket. We were hurrying to leave the condo, so I didn’t get a photo. It was too dark to get a picture when we returned home from eating. You’ll have to use your imagination, but I think you have a good idea of how it looked.
Traveling home always seems to go faster. I guess you are so anxious to get to the beach, etc., that time seems to stand still. I wore the deep teal romper on the way home. It is like the black one I wore to the beach in the first photo. As you can see…makeup was optional.
