The Perfect Beach Outfit

Hey folks!
So today was my last day of exams! I'm done for summer!
And in celebration, I began to use polyvore... to show you my perfect beach ensemble.



What do you think?! I quite like it. I wish I had some money right now to get an outfit like this, since summer is here already. Again with animal prints, I know! But how can you not love that? I don't know if I'm a fan of the blue ties though, I think it kind of cheapens the look. And you're probably sick of gladiators just from this one blog... but they're just so versatile and popular right now that I can't help myself! Sorry everyone. Also, I just love the idea of a men's shirt for a cover up - it's so cute, comfy and effortless.

I also made another, just because I really love gladiators, and because I love them with sack dresses. These were my favorite 3 and the shoes I would wear with them. I love love love the third dress, I think the pattern is the greatest (plus I have with a very similiar print):



Let me know what you think of those two. The yellow gladiators are really neat, I just had to use them.

Ugh, I wish I had taken a picture of my outfit today (I loved it ), but I had and exam and went to my boyfriend's and then out to dinner. The flash on my camera is broken and the other is MIA, so it just wasn't possible :( Maybe I'll put it back on in the morning and show you, haha. A description, you ask? Well, I wore a funky printed dress with the previously featured scarf, black footless tights - I know I know! Terrible! My footed ones are gouging with holes, and I can't find thick ones anymore because it's summer - my new wayfarer-style sunglasses, a faux-snakeskin bag and a zebra patterned tote for my schoolbooks. Thoughts? I really have to get you guys a picture.

Last thing: thanks for all your comments and suggestions! :) I'd really love to make this a popular blog that interests a variety of readers, so if there's anything you would like to see more of (or at least a beginning of), let me know!

Great job finishing your exams! I like the swimsuit in the first poly and my favorite dress was the third one in the second poly. Good job on both!

I love all of the outfits. And the idea of using the button-down shirt as a beach cover-up is great!
