This weekend we got to spend the most amazing, relaxing time in Pismo Beach! Between the cafe and spa time I wanted a really easy + cute beach-y look that took as little time as possible. AKA a big floppy hat to hide second day hair and a cute pair of flip flops!
In all honesty, I don't shop at Forever 21 that much. Their clothing tends to not be well made, but sometimes you can find a gem in the rough. This dress is that gem!! It is linen and really well made. Plus it is adorable and so comfortable! I love the midi length, but it is still breathable and light. I've linked the dress I'm wearing along with another similar option, you can shop by just clicking the pic! I'm wearing a medium, the dress runs a bit small.
The beach hat I'm wearing is Zara, but I've found a few other similar, cute options all under $20 above. One is under $10 and from Nordstrom!
Lastly, my VERY favorite piece from this weekend are these Valentino inspired rock stud flip flops from Amazon. They look just like the real deal!
I wore them all around the resort and on the beach. So comfy and well made -- there have 4.5/5 stars on Amazon! Plus they are a fraction of the cost of the Valentino flip flops. Depending on the size and color you want (there are many color options!) they range in price from $12-$19. AND they are prime so you get free fast shipping! I will be wearing these all summer for sure. You can shop directly below!
