Create 28 Link up!

Admittedly, blogging and my social media social life has gotten away from me this week!  Because real life has stepped in and taken over.  This time next week I will be on summer vacation, so end-of-year duties at school and all the comes with it has overwhelmed me.(I work better under pressure!  HA!)  I was not too active in Create 28 this week, but thought I would link up my featured post of the week, "Beach Bum" style from Friday!  Enjoy...and head on back to the blog for my future this week, Sunglasses Style!!  {Which I pretty much just remembered I have to write!  LOL...I'll be back on track soon!!}  Also, don't forget to hop on over to see a recap of all this week's looks styled by the babes of The Blended Blog!

And don't forget to link up your Create 28 posts with us below and hashtag your looks across social media with #theblendedblogstyle!

Create 28 Beach Bum Style (Original Post)

Seriously!!  How much fun is Create 28!?!  I've just loved seeing everyone's looks styled.  And I'm super excited to take a turn today and show my Beach Bum Style!  Earlier this week on The Blended Blog, I posted about my summer essentials!  And now I'm totally in Summer Mode....

 So C' we're heading to the beach!!

This is basically my look when I go to the beach!  For maybe the last three years!  HA!  This super versatile cover up is easy to throw on on your way to the beach and just as easy to take off when you hit the sand.  I bought it at Victoria's Secret a few years ago, and it was still available up until this year!  They've finally updated it a bit.  But being plain black, I'm ok with keeping it for years, and years...and years!!  A great cover up is key!!
I'm not sure why but this is one of my favorite photos ever!

If you saw my post over at The Blended Blog Monday than you know hats are my thing!  The fedoras my favorite, but the floppy hat and baseball caps are in rotation too!!

When I picked this prompt, I promised the girls of The Blended Blog that I wouldn't post a selfie in my swim suit, and I won't, but what is a Beach Bum post without a swimsuit?  When it comes to suits, I wear what I am most comfortable in or what the situation warrants.  I once wore a "cheeky" bikini to the beach with my family...and will NEVER, EVER live that down!! So these days I go for the classic bikini or bandeau style one piece!!  LOL
This chick looks better in this suit than I ever will!!
I got this suit last year and love, love, love it!!  (it's no longer available, but Adore Me has super cute suits for every body at super affordable prices!!

I attempted a new bikini this year, but hated the way I looked in it and ended up returning it! #thumbsdown #stillonthehunt

I bought this suit two summers ago and wore it maybe twice!  I found it again recently, so plan on making it my go to one piece this summer!!  

And who goes to the beach without a trusty pair of shades!  These are my beach sunnies for the summer!! (Come on back tomorrow to see a few more of my favorite pairs!!  

There you have it!  My Beach Bum style.  I might be working today, but the weather's great!  If you are lucky enough to be off, head to the beach....and don't forget the sunscreen!!

Here are the next round of looks to play along!!  Happy Wednesday....we're almost there!!  


  1. Every year I seem to forget how much work goes into getting all of the teaching and classroom stuff wrapped-up! I hope you are surviving. Today is my last day...just a few more hours!

  2. I love what you picked out...good luck with end of the year stuff!

  3. Love the casual beach look, I would totally wear that. I think that little black number is perfect for throwing over the suite and going. Your post makes me pine for the end of the month when our schools wrap up. Good luck with your last bit of work, you are almost there!!!!

  4. You and Whitney are burning the virtual midnight oil on this school year. Geez, working you gals right up to the beginning of next year. NO bueno. Hope you hurry through these last days and can dive into some summer fun. I know of NO beach bum who wears a fedora and darling cover-up like YOU.

  5. You ROCK the beach bum style!! and your tan!! always envious with my albino skin over here lol

  6. I'm jealous of your beach-going ways. All we have around here is a kinda dirty river that you can float down. ha!
