Beach Baby

{Victoria's Secret top, J. Crew bottom, Scunci headband, Marc by Marc Jacobs sunglasses, Maybelline lipstick in Rapture}
Over the weekend, I went to Laguna Beach to spend some quality time with the family (which explains my recent lack of posting). Normally I would never subject you to photos of me in a swimsuit, but since I basically didn't wear anything else for four days, this is all I got, people.

I picked this headband up at CVS right before I left, knowing I'd want to keep my bangs out of my face on the beach. And you know what? I think it's just about the best $5 I've ever spent- it keeps the hair off my face and stays on even in the wind! Plus it actually goes with quite a few things in my wardrobe. I'll definitely be pulling this sucker out for future bad hair days. 

I had been searching everywhere for the perfect high-waisted swimsuit, and took a risk by ordering this one online without trying it on. Luckily it was the kind of flattering silhouette I was hoping for: one that is not-too-tight, with plenty of ruching. While the look is definitely a tad Man Repeller, I love how vintage it feels for a fun beach day.

Hope your weekend was amazing, and that if you didn't make it to the beach (or pool, or lake, or cold bathtub) you did something equally summery.
