Beach Chic for Less

Sunny summer days are here again! Are you ready to soak up some rays? If you need inspiration for beach or pool-side gear, you’ve come to the right spot. I’ve scoped out the mothership (Target) for a few pieces that will have you looking beach chic for less.

Swimsuits.

Target has lots of different styles and they are mostly mix and match. I prefer bikinis, and I love to be able to mix and match them to find my best fit. If bikinis aren’t your style, or you prefer to have a bit more coverage, try their bikini bottom with a high waist! Target has cute one piece swimsuits, too. I like to look for ones that have a little something extra to them…like cutouts, or interesting straps or ties. Do you like to have a little lift in the top? Look for suits with padding or added volume (like ruffles). It will give the visual effect of more oomph right where you want it.

Cover Ups.

I love a good cover up, especially if it can double as a kimono to wear with shorts and a tank top for off the beach. Look for breezy light weight ones like this pretty floral one at Target.

Grab your dollar center sun hat (it’s actually $5) and your swimsuit and you are beach chic…and you paid less.

Bags.

Yes, we all know the joys of the straw bag; they are big enough to tote beach supplies to and fro. But why not try a backpack? I found this cheery yellow striped one at Target for $29.99. If you’re like me, you’ll need more than one bag…which makes a backpack a good choice. That’s one less thing to hold.

Sunglasses.

One thing I miss about not being able to wear contacts is the sunglasses options! Target has a huge variety, and even though I might not be able to see really well when wearing these…they are too cute to pass up. Inexpensive too at around $14.99.

Flip Flops.

Are you like me and have feet that look like Hobbit’s feet when wearing traditional flip flops? No? Oh, well either way, you can certainly find inexpensive flip flops at Target. I prefer ones with straps across my foot to make them more beach ready and less Hobbit heavy.

And don’t forget your sunscreen. We all love the sun, but we love healthy, beautiful skin more.

So, what are you waiting for? Let’s go hit the beach. I’ll stay on the shore though; sharks are in the ocean, which means I’m not.
