It's Day Three of Girls Night Out/Date Night Looks! Today's look is perfect for a day at the beach, lake, boardwalk or sitting poolside! In a few months, I'll be living near the beach and can't wait to spend weekends at Virginia Beach and the other beaches of the area!
My focus piece for this look was a pair of flowly, printed shorts from H&M! These shorts were on sale for only $9.99 and are a part of H&M's Conscious Collection. This pair of shorts had a matching top, however, the matching shirt is still $30.00 and will not be coming home with me until it dips a lot in price. H&M clothes run true to size. My shorts are a 10 and are still a bit roomy.
Without a matching shirt to the shorts, I was baffled as to which top I would wear with these shorts. I found my answer on Rue21.com. I've already talked about how much I love Rue 21 for their affordable ringer tees and great sales, but they also have nice quality dresses and dressy tops as well! My off the shoulder top in navy was only $4.99 with free shipping online! This top can be worn off the shoulder or on the shoulder, allowing you distinct looks for however you decide to rock this top! If you don't have a Rue 21 near you, I recommend shopping online at Rue21.com.
I am wearing a pair of gold flatform sandals from Target that were purchased last season for only $8.98. My accessories for this look are very simple; a gold chocker and gold '70s inspired earrings. I am also carrying a faux suede fringe purse from Rue 21, that is not shown. If taking this look to the beach or lake, I recommend a large straw hat in tan, beige or white to keep the sun off of your face. Sunnies are my favorite accessory! I am sporting this pair of round gold, rainbow mirrored sunnies from Wet Seal. Wet Seal's sunglasses are currently on sale for 2 pairs for $7.00.
The perfect clothes for date day or a girls day at the beach, pool or lake are flowly pieces that will keep you cool. H&M has tons of affordable options that will also work well as cover ups! Currently, they are having their 4th of July Sale with prices marked up to 70% off!
