Salty Air and Sun-Kissed Hair: Fashion for the Beach

This post is underwritten by Old Navy. Whether you’re looking for a tankini, bikini, or a one piece, Old Navy has you confidently covered at a great price.

I love the beach. As a toddler I spent my summers building sand castles and feeding ducks at my grandparent’s shore house in Seaside Park. As a teenager I worked my first job on the boardwalk and lived with my Aunt and Uncle in Point Pleasant Beach. (Kohrs Frozen Custard, anyone?) As a young adult I interned at a marketing agency in Honolulu for the summer while I lived with my Aunt Kathi. Needless to say, I love salt water, I love sand, and I love summer. I also love summer fashion. I love cutoff shorts, bikinis, sundresses, cover-ups, floppy hats, flip flops, sunglasses, and everything else that goes into creating the perfect beach wardrobe.

I love colorful bikinis. Palm trees and the Hawaiian ocean are pretty nice too! ;p

I love cute cover-ups that you can throw on after a swim and instantly be presentable for dinner with.

Don’t let the pale skin fool you, I spend a lot of time at the beach, I just wear sunscreen! That’s me jumping off Waimea Rock in Hawaii. I was terrified but it was so much fun! I actually did it twice!

As I plan out future beach vacations and outfits to wear I’m finding myself more and more looking for cute pieces at affordable prices. When I checked out Old Navy’s summer wardrobe online I was blown away by how stylish all their clothes are and what good sales they have going on. For their prices you can buy a complete summer wardrobe without any guilt! I went ahead and made the inspiration board above of things I want to buy from Old Navy when I reach my goal weight to celebrate being fit for the summer. Only 10 more pounds to go and then I’m treating myself to some bikinis! That includes the ruffle-trim bandeau bikini in the collage above.

And this hot little number. I love how colorful and playful it is. It just screams cocktails and sunset beach parties to me!

Question of the Day: What are your must-have wardrobe items from Old Navy for the beach this summer?

      I love beach totes! One year I brought a leather purse to the beach and that was such a mistake, months later I was still combing the sand out of it! :( When I was looking at Old Navys selection online I saw they had some really cute options! Its making me want to be at the beach now instead of work!

      I love their summer dresses! And omg I haven’t ever thought about what maternity swimwear would look like before, I just googled and there are some horrible options out there. Eeek. Thank goodness for Old Navy, hopefully they still carry it five years from now when I start thinking about kids! ;p

    Love Old Navy for classics to wear daily. I love their tees and tanks and any easy throw on cotton skirts or dresses.

    PS – That blue ruffle bikini in the one pic is too cute. Now I may just have to make a shopping trip

    I’m a big fan of Old Navy for workout clothes and clothes for my boys. I’m more the Athleta type for me though – part of getting older I guess LOL. Cute stuff, though.
