CHIC BEACH SKIRT

Today I am headed to a lake-beach with my family. The weather is hot and sunny today and I expect there to be a whole lot of people. I am looking forward to dip my feet into the cold water. :)
I am wearing my water slippers from Target. I paired a white, basic tank top with a scarf which I transformed into a skirt (see below). Scarfs are one of my favorite accessories because of their versatility.

Here are some ways I get use out of my scarfs at the beach:
  • Something to sit on
  • As a light blanket
  • To protect my decollete and hair from the sun
  • To wipe off sand or excess water
  • To wrap around my torso to keep warm
  • As a skirt

I am also bringing a light purple cardigan with me, just in case the temperature cools down in the evening. My large Longchamp tote coupled with a small shoulder bag are my bag choices for the day. I made my family a healthy beet salad before heading on our beach trip.

Have a great day:)

           I make sure it clips into a hairband or scrunchy



I am wearing this scarf/skirt with a simple white tank top. I also have a cardigan ready in case it cools off in the evening         hours.


I fold the H&M scarf into half and roll it in 3 times

I pin the scarf sideways


So simple and easy :)


Adding  a small (or large) bag completes the outfit.
I also have my large Longchamp bag fully packed. :)


I am eating healthy today. I just steamed up 4 vegetable beets. 

Yummi and healthy beet salad :)

  15. I sometimes do this tool, I mean wear a scarf as a skirt. I love to always have a scarf in my bag because you just never know. Often when I'm wearing a skirt that's shorter, I will tie a long scarf around when I want to sit somewhere (or just use it as a blacket).

    You look so cute and pretty in this outfit....I like that flower in your hair!

  19. Darling, who is grateful for the support I am. I'm very glad you returned the comment and you had the trouble to read my post and left me a word of encouragement. No doubt this is something rewarding. Your opinion is of the utmost importance. Nothing happens by chance and I'm not sad for not having entered into Doctorate. I have lots of dreams to accomplish and I'm going to take this year to achieve them. <3
