…Especially when the weather does not co operate.
We’ve all done it. Bought some beautiful beach wear to throw on for a day in the sun. Then proceeded to wear them just the once, or if at all, and then resign them to the back of the wardrobe for another year.
Yep so sad. Especially when beach wear can be just so so pretty!
So i got to thinking. Why not add in some pieces that can be worn with actual day to day clothes, maximising the potential of actually being able to wear the item.
Take these for example:
Beautiful white dresses. Great beach cover ups. But without the sun or a beach in sight what to do?
Well, I’m thinking these layered over a white vest and some skinny blue jeans, sandals or tan ankle boots, and a fedora style hat will mean you can work both these dresses for more than just a day at the beach.
Perfect for running errands and utilising a pretty garment for more than is suggested.
Next up: Both of these are far far to good for just a cover-up. I mean look at that maxi dress!! Stunning right?
Each of these again prove that there is more to beach wear than my first thoughts.
Pair the funky summery print trousers with a white vest top and a black jacket. Add in some black block heels and a statement necklace and you’ve got yourself a nice evening look made out of what was primarily just some throw on trousers.
The maxi dress needs no imagination to see that it just works. A denim jacket and some sandals are this dresses best friend. Need that in my life!

Lastly beach sarongs and scarves. I mean look at them. So so pretty.
The wrap scarf doesn’t have to be just tied around your waist in a tropical style, no no Scarves have been big in the fashion community for seasons. Wear them draped around your shoulders and rock that drapey scarf look. I am besotted with the poppy print sarong. Add in some white jeans, a navy vest top and some tan heels and this draped around your shoulders and now the sarong now has a whole new lease of life.
Do you have any beachwear items that you could give a new lease of life to?
