For this post, I thought I’d share just how you can change your look from the beach to ‘beach chic’. Obviously, this post is exaggerated in a sense that I won’t look so flawless at the beach but blogs are somewhat an exaggeration is it not? I mean, it’s not like I’m going to be chilling on the beach with a full face of makeup and constantly be in a perfectly upright -photographic position but we do this so that we can give you something visual to identify with. Don’t get me wrong, this transition is achievable with a few key pieces.
You will need: Look 1
A one-piece costume
Sunscreen -SPF 30 if you’re looking to get a ‘safe’ tan
Lip Ice ( with SPF )
Water – It’s important to stay hydrated when spending long hours in the sun
..And obviously other beach essentials such as towels, etc
Essentials will be listed below this post.
You will need: Look 2
The same one-piece costume
A denim button-up shirt
Pair of heels to transition from the beach to ‘beach chic’
About look 1:
There is not much to this look besides this amazing one-piece I picked up from Topshop. Using a kimono as an ‘accessory’ can make more some interesting photographic moments and let’s face it ladies, who wants to go to the beach without snapping a nice picture?
About look 2:
This look can be dressed-up in so many ways but I’ve chosen to colour co-ordinate and accentuate the key element of this look which is the one-piece. When paired with these pieces, it becomes quite difficult to determine whether it is a swimming costume or a regular one-piece which adds to the duality and uniqueness of the one-piece. Finish off the look with some signature From Turkey with Love pieces and you’re good to go.
