Beach Bum

1. Bikini top / bikini bottom | 2. Jersey dress  | 3. Beach tote | 4. Sandals | 5. Sunscreen (my personal fave brand!) | 6. Strapless maxi | 7. Beach towel | 8. Polka dot bikini | 9. Straw hat | 10. Spray for beachy waves!

I’m excited about virtually every aspect of our impending trip abroad, but after a stressful few weeks, the thought of hanging out next to the ocean — specifically on the Côte d’Azur — sounds delightful. Versus other beach locales, there’s something about this stretch of coastline that feels ultra glamorous (probably because it is…I’m interested to see the size of the yachts docked here too!). One simply can’t schlump down to the beach in an old t shirt and shorts when you’re on the French Riviera. Attention must be paid. Hats and mediterranean colors seem requisite, don’t you think?

    Just came back from Sephora and bought the sunscreen. I’m terrible about buying any sort of beauty product unless it comes as a recommendation. Heading to Palm Springs for the weekend so it’ll come in handy.

    I stayed at Code D’Azur few years. If you get a chance, do make it to Fragonart perfumary. The drive up there is spectacular and well worth the visit..

    Beautiful choices!

    Love them all!
    Just take sandals you can wear down to the water. Those rocks are a killer when you slip on them (which I found inevitable).

    That yellow hat has a lot of presence.
