I wanted to share a quick beach tip that I recently found out about! Okay so I love going to the beach BUT I hate getting sandy.

Well here’s a quick and easy essential that you can throw in your beach bag:
Yep, good old fashion baby powder. Sprinkle some on your skin and the sane comes right off!

Summer is right around the corner and I have made it my mission to wear more beach hats…not just to the beach but everywhere. Hats are such an amazing accessory that I always forget about. In the winter I was obsessed with scarves and in the summer my go to accessories are necklaces and cute shoes, but what about hats?! I put together an adorable summer date night outfit! The featured dress is by PilyQ. The PilyQ Sunbeam Rion Dress is a one size fit all halter dress that is fun but glamorous for your perfect date night outfit. Pair it off with a black Mudpie clutch to fit all your date night necessities (lipstick, cell phone, and money in case he’s cheap). Add a Cocobelle necklace to accentuate your plunging neckline and of course don’t forget your adorable ´åle by alessandra Leather ‘n Lace black hat!

You know when you’re just having one of those days that just drags on and on and everything just seems to go wrong? Don’t worry, there’s a light at the end of the tunnel! Even though we are in snowy New England (don’t let the southbeachswimsuits.com fool you into thinking we are in sunny Florida), the days are getting longer and the hint of Spring sunshine is coming out slowly. When I get stressed out, I think about a deserted beach with nice glistening sand and the bluest water you can ever imagine. I close my eyes and hear the waves crashing and breathe in the salty air as the sun hits my face. I can almost feel it now. Soaking up sunshine is one of the best type of therapies in my opinion! Vitamin Sea can always cure me :)
I have been obsessed with bohemian or “boho” style lately. I love the free spirit flowy look and feel to this new trendy style. I am so sick of tight, restrictive clothing aren’t you? We just picked up a new line at http://www.SouthBeachSwimsuits.com called Tiare Hawaii and it’s all about achieving the boho look. Just look at these amazing pants! The print is fun and stylish and the fit is flattering to any figure. The Tiare Hawaii Cambodia skirt can be worn with literally anything. She’s wearing it with a black bandeau top which is such a cute beach look if you’re having a girls’ weekend at the beach. I would totally wear a chambray top with this and obviously to get the boho look you need a hat :) We will be getting in the most amazing hat line I have ever seen by ale´ by Alessandra Ambrosio this week so we have everything you need to achieve the Boho look.
