BOARDWALK

BEACH STYLE WITH LULU*S
White Retro Sunglasses c/o Lulu*s, Gold Anchor Necklace c/o Lulu*s, Floral Lavender One-Piece Swimsuit c/o Lulu*s, Mint Jeggings c/o Lulu*s, Mint Pointed Pumps c/o Lulu*s (Similar)

For this look, which I wore to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk this weekend, I collaborated with Lulu*s to style an outfit, from head to toe, that you can wear both around town and then to the beach! Especially if you intend to grab lunch at a nearby restaurant or do some shopping at a beach town, outfits like these allow you to look classy and put together the entire day without sacrificing comfort or convenience.

Whether you go swimming a lot or not, one piece swimsuits or bodysuits in general, are great pieces to incorporate into your wardrobe because you can always wear them as tops instead! A lot of bustiers can be uncomfortable because of the boning, and they can also shift around in the back during the day; however, wearing a strapless one piece swimsuit as a bustier top can eliminate those problems. I styled this floral swimsuit with a pair of mint jeggings and mint pumps. Once I got to the beach, I just took the heels off and went barefoot, so if you don't like going barefoot, make sure to remember to pack sandals in your bag! To protect my eyes, I wore a pair of white sunglasses, and I kept my jewelry minimal with this mini anchor necklace.

Hope you guys like the change of scenery in these photos and that you have a great start to your week! :)

  13. Hello Jennifer,
    I'm taking the freedom of leaving you a comment because I'm currently working on a fashion-related dissertation for my MSc. I'm doing a survey about the perception of young women towards today's fashion luxury brands, and if you, or any of your lovely reader, could take 5 mins and complete it, it would be of much much help :)
    Here the link of my survey: https://fr.surveymonkey.com/s/2WNTNCY
    Thank you very much!

    Lou ♥
    Ps: You've got the most amazing hair Ive ever seen!

  16. A really summery look. I don't think I'd have the balls to wear heels on a boardwalk though.

  17. Hi Jennifer, all your photos are really nice..
    Everytime I really look bad in posing and i cant find a nicer background like yours..
    and may i know what camera and what lens are you using?
    Since each of the photo will have a blur background.
    I need your information :) I want to owe a blog like you.
    You can check out my blog and you will find out the problem of my photos.
    I have no one to guide me :(

    1. Hi Chuii!

      Thank you :) I use a Nikon D5100 with a 50 mm f1.8 lens! It's a prime lens, so it only has one focal length, and thus one thing is always in focus, and the rest is out of focus. You can also read more about how I take my outfit photos in this tutorial I made here: http://artinourblood.blogspot.com/2012/07/outfit-photo-tutorial.html

      I hope this helps! :)
