Mermaid Life: The One Piece of Clothing You Need For The Beach

I have a summer style secret! It's a no fuss, simple yet chic kind of secret. It's too juicy not to share so here goes....

I'm pretty sure I was born to live on the beach. There is something about it that keeps pulling me back. I mean I literally dream about the beach everyday. This particular beach trip was on the weekend I got engaged. I had no clue I was going to get engaged, but when my fiancĂ© said we were taking a weekend trip I wasted no time packing! The more we go away and explore the better I get at packing. For this trip I kept it really simple by packing the one piece any girl needs for an impromptu beach trip - a maxi dress! 

The secret is out, Maxi dresses are very versatile and that's why I love them. A maxi can be dressed up or down when paired with the right accessories! The good thing about a maxi dress is that you can wear your bathing suit underneath if you are opting to go swimming. If you are opting to not go swimming, like I did here,  then all you have to take your shoes off and have fun. I recommend a maxi dress for any body type when altered correctly. 

What is one piece of clothing you don't leave home without when you're headed to the beach? Comment below.
