Accessorizing Your Bathing Suit

Whether you're getting ready for Spring Break, a family vacation or just live close to the beach there are certain boxes that need to be checked.  Of course we all want our bods to be in tip top shape, easier said than done. But be confident with what you're working with.  When searching for a monokini, I saw this red one and it lured me in!  The Orchid Boutique styled this shot so well that I'm going to take it to the beach...all of it. 
Now I wouldn't go accessorizing head to toe if your trip to the beach or pool involves body surfing or chicken fights.  So maybe studs instead of the thin hoops pictured below. 
Flip Flops...check.  Beach Bag...check.  Sunscreen AND oil...check. better bring a few pairs on vacation.  You'll need to switch those Sunnies up with outfits and have a spare pair just in case there are any casualties.  But that's the easy part, right? Dress those wrists up with bangles and stretch bracelets!  Nothing with a clasp though, you need to slip them off as needed for those water dips.  Can we please talk about that printed turban headband?  These are a MUST!  They are so easy to make, so get creative and choose the fabric that will best suit your suit. 
Stay tuned...we'll be showing you how to make a Turban Headband later on this week.
