Dress and necklaces from Smart Set. Converse sneakers.

Let me tell you something. Every time you see an ad or an editorial featuring a beautiful mannequin on the beach with perfect hair, multiple bangles and makeup, well, it is a complete lie. There is no such thing as cute beach hair. There is only messy hair on a bun/braid or loose hair that flies everywhere. There is no such thing as wearing a lot of accessories at the beach, because it is annoying and unpractical. There is no such thing as wearing loads of makeup, because you’ll end up looking like a raccoon after a dip in the ocean. The only thing that works at the beach is a simple dress, simple shoes and messy hair, and these photos represent how I really am at the beach, simple and comfortable.
