Embroidery Skirt – A Beach Day Must Have

Ever since I was a little girl, my summers were spent on the Mediterranean coast, swimming in the salty water and playing in the waves. Thankfully, when I moved to California a couple of years ago, we settled on the San Francisco peninsula near the water. Water, and seas and oceans specifically, are vital to me. I need to be able to take a short drive to soak my feet in the sand and breathe in the salty marine air.


As the days are getting warmer, spending the day at the beach is becoming my favorite pastime!

What I love more than a day at the beach is beach attire!




I’ve always adored embroidery, (remember this gorgeous Valentine’s day dress?), so when I saw this skirt I immediately fell in love with it. The length is extremely flattering on my shorter figure. Because it ends right above the ankles, it will help make you look taller. The embroidery is my favorite part of this skirt. The colors and patterns are eye catching but in a very subtle way. It puts out beautiful Spanish vibes!










Beach bags are just the funnest, don’t you think? Pom Poms and tassels are this season’s biggest trend (remember this gorgeous clutch?). There’s something very summery about them. What I love most about this beach bag is that you can easily carry it for a non-beach day too. Maybe to the farmer’s market or even on a holiday exploring a new cities? It’s such a multifunctional bag, perfect for a vacation.

The white cut out crop top is a little too risqué for every day, but perfect for the beach! The cutout details are beautiful and helps reducing fabric, which is perfect for a hot day. To add a little color to this rather white outfit, I threw on some pink shades, blue tassels bracelets and my favorite blue studded sandals.

What’s your favorite way to spend a hot summery day? Are you a beach or mountain person?

Have a great start of the week everyone and see you with a new post this Wednesday!

    My favourite thing about this outfit is how light it seems. I can almost feel the thin layers of cotton floating around in the wind. It’s the best fabric for summer of all!

    It must be good to live close to the sea, especially when it is so hot outside! I prefer to spend my days by the beach and jump into the water when I get hot. Your outfit is beach perfect, I like all the pieces! x

    Tamara, you look absolutely gorgeous in this outfit! All of the pieces look fantastic paired together here; this is truly a perfect summer, beach, outfit! I don’t typically wear crop tops, but I would DEFINITELY wear this one, especially near the water or on the beach. Which speaking of, is my favorite place to be on those hot summer days! I love laying on the sand, while the sun lulls me to sleep at the sound of the crushing waves, so tranquil! I also love the mountains, too. I just love being in nature in general, it really does calm and inspire me 🙂 Thank so much for sharing, gorgeous, and I hope you’re having a wonderful start to your week so far!



  20. June 14, 2016 / 8:21 am

    This look is amazing and so summery! Especially love the accessories 🙂 And I think that you could even pull off the white top if you combine it in a modest way

    I totalllllllly feel you! Moving to San Francisco has been a dream being so close to the water. In fact, I have a secret spot in the Marina where I go to just watch the waves. It’s so gorgeous here!

    That outfit is SO pretty on you! I love the accessories & pops of color against the white – perfect for coastal summers! xx Shannon
