Beach Chic on a Budget

I’ve definitely been craving a day at the beach. I just want to grab my favorite magazine and a book and just lounge! When I was packing for San Diego last week, I realized that my entire beach outfit cost less than $35! That’s swimsuit, sun hat, and flip flops.

Well, you must know I’m a budgeting master. And just because you’re on a budget doesn’t mean you can’t look chic on the beach, right? Well, the entire look I put together (below) was only $95.83! This is definitely a look that will carry you through the entire summer.

Hurry up Simply Be!

Will UK’s Simply Be please hurry and come to the U.S. already! I’m drooling over here! I know they will be here this summer, but this shopaholic is getting impatient.

Look at this Simply Yours swim wear! I can’t stop staring at the Panache (polka dots) Swimsuit. I am looking for a cover-up too. Something that isn’t boring and a waste of money. Why is it always so hard to find a decent swimsuit?

Have you found your summer swimsuit yet?

New Glamour Cover!!

The new cover for Glamour magazine’s June 2010 issue is out! You’ve heard the hype over this issue! It features three beautiful women: Crystal Renn, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Brooklyn Decker.

They are wearing the summer’s hottest swimsuits and share their “confindence-boosting tips.”

I can’t wait to get my issue! I still haven’t found my swimsuit, maybe this will help me. {fingers crossed}

“Women will accept themselves when they see more [body] types…. This is the new normal.” -Crystal Renn

A gorgeous cover indeed. Some say Crystal is losing her curves? Does it really matter?

What do you think of the lovely ladies?

Swimsuit Hunting

Ok…it’s time to start looking for a swimsuit. Here are my requirements:

  • Classic
  • Tasteful
  • One piece
  • Reasonably priced
  • Great quality
  • Sturdy chest support (lol)
  • Comfortable

That’s not too much to ask for, right? I picked a few below, but some of them are pricey. I’ll keep looking.
