While I usually spend my Christmases in chilly northern California, this year I will be jetting off to Key West, Florida for a white Christmas (white beaches that is). With my What to Wear: Thanksgiving post those outfits I provided can easily translate for those of you who need something to wear to Christmas or Hannakah dinner. But, for those of us who are going to be in warmer areas for the holidays I wanted to give you some inspiration. Now is a great time to pick up a new bikini or cover-up since they’re all on sale! Shopbop is a great website that has a huge index of designers. All the clothes and pictures I will be showing you are from the Shopbop website.
Juicy Couture Lurex Stripe Terry One Shoulder Dress – $158 47.40This dress is great to throw over your suit and head to the beach or pool. After a few hours of lounging in the sun, it’s the perfect cover-up to walk into town. And at over $100 off you can’t go wrong!
Karina Grimaldi ‘Maria’ Strapless Romper – $174 121.80This is also another one of those perfect outfits to throw over a bathing suit. What I like about this romper is the peacock plume which dresses up the romper just a tad. To go out at night in this outfit pair it with a pair of wedges or strappy heels.
Vix Swimwear ‘Bazaar’ Bandeau One Piece – $145I’ve been craving a cute one piece like this one for awhile now. I love the delicate scalloped hem which provides a girly touch to a traditionally plain suit. If you’re into tanning then this isn’t the suit for you, but it would be great for spending the day playing on the beach.
L*Space ‘Slinky Solids’ Lola Bandeau Bikini – $150For those of you who like to keep your skin sun-kissed year round, this is the perfect suit to tan in. The bandeau style of the top will keep away those pesty tan lines that ordinary string bikinis cause. Another plus? If you are a pear shape or have a fuller bottom, this suit will help to slim you through the hips and give you a beautiful silhouette.
Bop Basics ‘Open Weave’ Fedora with Ivory Trim – $65What day at the beach is complete without a hat? As a thin-haired girl myself I know the importance of protecting my scalp from sunburns. This fedora adds a playful twist on a typical sun hat. It can also be worn for many other occasions, including a day at school. It’s a great investment to protect your head!
I wish you all a very white Christmas! Happy holidays!
