The Best Vacation Outfits for Your Beach Trip

June 15, 2018

When you live in the San Francisco Bay, things stay pretty temperate all year round. At a balmy summer high of 70 degrees, it’s almost always appropriate to wear a sweater or a light jacket. If you plan on getting the most of your beach trip, it’s probably time to hit the Pacific Coast Highway and head south for warmer weather. Before you head out, Scout & Molly’s Boutique at Walnut Creek has all of the beach outfits, shoes, jewelry, and accessories you need this summer. Our expert stylists put together their best tips for arranging cute summer outfits for your summer beach trip.

Nothing Beats the Perfect Beach Dress

The Long Sleeve Button-Up Dress from Elan

When it comes to beach vacation dresses, you’re going to want to keep things wearable, versatile, and lightweight. This season, we’re loving linen material, floral patterns, and lace details. One of our favorite staples for a beach outfit is this Long Sleeve Button-Up Dress from Elan, which is perfect for the beach in so many ways. You can wear it open and unbuttoned over your swimsuit as a breezy coverup, and the striped pattern gives the whole look a nautical feel. If you’re heading out for dinner later in the evening, all you have to do is button up, add a stack of gold bangles, slip on a pair of wedge sandals, and you’ll be ready to go.

The Look is in the Details

The Scout & Molly’s stylists are also in love with tassel details this season. Throw on another cute summer outfit for the beach with this black and white Embroidered Dress from Paige, one of our most popular brands. Since this beach vacation dress has neutral colors, it’s the perfect canvas for bright jewelry and accessories, and it’s simple enough to wear as a beach cover-up by day. Since it’s sleeveless, you’ll also get to show off your hard-earned tan!

What’s great is that you can take either of these dresses (or any look) to the next level by adding some statement jewelry. For the summer, we love all things bold and gold. Whether you prefer textured drop earrings from Golden Stella or this fun lightning bolt necklace from Kendra Kist Jewelry, you can’t go wrong when it comes to the accessories section at Scout & Molly’s.

Shoes to Carry You from the Beach to the Bar

The Dolce Vita Lorna Stack Heel

Take your summer outfits for the beach from day to night with the right pair of shoes. If you’re going right from the beach to the bar, choose either a flat sandal or one with a wedge or chunky heel, like the Dolce Vita Lorna Stack Heel. Since they’re a neutral color, these chic shoes will pair beautifully with all of your summer outfits.
