Hello fabulous ladies and sorry for the delay on your trendy tip #7. Memorial Day weekend has just past and it was the kickoff to beach road trips. I absolutely love the beach (the vibes, the waves, the food, the constant floating). However, life has been very busy lately that I haven’t had time to go to the beach. In fact my last time was 2014, with graduating and trying to job hustle. However, me and three of my lovely sisters in Christ decided to go to Virginia Beach and we had a ball. 2014 was also the year I became a Christian, so you know what that means… Yes, MODESTY! I did a post last year on modestly and the practicality of it, especially once you get to a certain age, however, I did not mention what you do when you go to the beach (shame on me).
Now ladies, I know you all have been working on that beach body and you want to show it off. But if the Bible is your standard then modesty is not an option, it’s a must. But you can still be cute while being modest, I promise! Here are some tips:
There are tons of stores that sell stellar one pieces, two-pieces, and tankinis online and in store; beachwear for average sized women and plus-sized women! Ayra Swim, and Asos, Nordstrom have great one-pieces ranging from: $40-100. However, if you wanted to a more cost-effective alternative, Victoria’s Secret, Target, Old Navy, Nordstrom Rack, and Marshalls all have great pieces as well. If you don’t want to go the one-piece route, but would prefer a bikini, you can always pair it with a standout cover-up (sold in the stores listed above).
We love those short shorts because there is nothing like the sun kissing your legs. However, instead of the short shorts, you can absolutely go for complete boho-beach vibes with flowy pants. They’re cute, comfortable, and fit the occasion.
Going out to dinner with your girls? Instead of the skin-tight bodycon, linen is the way to go (also previously discussed). It’s lightweight but dressy enough to standout for your night out!
It is possible to be modest and cute, I guarantee it!
