Spending the summer on the Cape has my beach fever in full swing. I have seen so many adorable airy maxi dresses and tunics around these parts and I want every single one! Also, the amount of adorable beach bags being shown this season has my heart a flutter. To top it all off (and, to cover up the sandy beach hair) simply throw on a chic fedora or floppy hat and some oversized sunnies.
If you are planning any kind of beach getaway sometime soon, these are some of the things you should pack in your bag. Take it from me, a newly self-proclaimed beach aficionado ;)

Summer time means sandal season, which means it is essential to have your toenails painted at all times. If there’s one thing that makes me cringe, it’s seeing bare, discolored toenails. Paint those babies with a hot shade of pink or red!
As far as fingernails, pretty much anything goes for color. But if you want my opinion, the brighter the color the better during the summer. My favorite color of my picks above is from the up-and-coming brand JINsoon – how fab is that shade of purple?! I’m totally swooning.

What is your go-to summer nail color(s)?
