Would you blame me for having a "live life in a bikini" state of mind this summer? This weekend was hot! hot! hot! And you know what a great way to cool off is? Definitely by putting on the cutest bikini within reach and heading out to the beach. Just what I did this weekend, and it was heaven! Temperatures went up to 100 plus degrees in the LA area so heading to the beach (not that Shawn and I don't spend every single weekend at the beach anyway) was crucial! The water was so nice & cool and the slight breeze was very much welcomed! Of course, wearing a cute bikini is part of all the summer fun! This coral crochet cutie (say that five times fast!) is one of my currents favorites for this hot hot season! AND it is so incredibly comfortable! Like, is it acceptable to wear this cute 'kini top everyday this summer? Asking for a friend, of course!
In actuality, I've never owned a crochet bikini before this one but I do love crochet for summertime and the pop of color is fitting for this hot summer season, don't you think? The best part about this outfit? Throw a crop top over the 'kini and it turns into the cutest summer outfit! Since I was walking down to the beach, through the cutest tropical plant lined alleyway might I add, I went sans crop top but added a pair of high wasted denim shorts, a straw hat, and a white crochet kimono. Shoes not necessary since we're living in a beach state of mind anyway! A pair of sunglasses and a cute straw handbag completed my look and served double duty to protect my eyes from the sun and house some of my beachside essentials. Want to know what I like to take with me to the beach? Let me know and I'll go more in depth in another post!!
Looking through these photos, coral is one of those colors that I love for summer because it gives such a nice contrast to my tan skin. I actually found some other super cute coral 'kini tops that you need to get your hands on this summer, specially if a tropical vacay is on the agenda! But also perfect for a staycation experience just like I like!! I mean, I do live in Southern California, so...
Okay, so what do we think about this laid back Southern California beachy look? The pop of color and otherwise neutral combination makes my heart so happy! If I could wear this outfit all day everyday, believe me, I totally would! What did you do this weekend? AND most importantly, how did you cool off? I'll tell you one thing, hot summer days ahead only make me excited to put on the cutest bikini within reach and walk down to the beach!
Thanks for taking a moment of your day to stop by! Wishing you an awesome week ahead!
A special thank you to Stacey and The Bikini Lab for this pretty coral crochet bikini. As always, all opinions are that of my own.
