Down By The Beach

by amandamcdougall

Finally had beautiful weather for my day off yesterday and decided to go on an impromptu beach day with my mother. 13590273_10209616344595984_4437563842379320548_n

The cute scenery and hot sun led to some cute pictures (well worth the sunburn I returned with!) so I thought I’d share my super simple summer uniform as of late.

I’ve always had a thing for the preppy look of button down shirts, but recently found myself loving the casual-grungy way they can be paired with almost anything. Surprisingly, I have quite a few button downs in my closet but no plain white ones (not since my high school uniform days anyways…) and picked up this Zara Basic Shirt in their sale recently, which is still available. Definitely less structured and more floaty, if thats what you’re looking for.

Paired it with my Zara white-tipped shades, One Teaspoon Bandit Shorts, and a new belt from ASOS, as well as my go-to sandals that always attract compliments (a steal many years ago from Wal-Mart, if you believe it). It was the perfect simple base to pair with such a colourful bikini such as the royal blue Kiini one I was wearing.

Hope you all get to enjoy some good weather this weekend! Ill be working inside… 😦
