friday's fancies #83.

Happy Friday, friends! With June nearly in the books, it is only appropriate to devote a week to being beachy chic for #FridaysFancies :) I crafted this sassy ensemble with my sun savvy pledge in mind. After a few years out of the sun, I have finally found a happy medium and this outfit showcases it!


Since my bout with melanoma, bathing suits scared me a bit. When I realized that covering my stomach, where the melanoma had appeared, would help eliminate that fear, I felt loads better. I now swear by La Blanca suits, and only wish this One Piece Bandeau Swimsuit were in my beach bag.

I discovered this Clarins Sun Care Milk Lotion Spray SPF 50+ in April--and will likely never buy another sunscreen ever again. Not only does it smell good, it provides fantastic coverage. It really is a 'lotion spray' and is incredibly easy to apply. The pricetag is a bit steep, but it's worth it in my book.

I've fallen head over heels for Mott 50, a brand which weaves UV protection into their clothes. This Christine Sleeveless Shift Dress would work as a cover-up or a fun sundress, so it's a winner to me!

Jack Rogers require little explanation. These Rio Navajos are bold, beautiful, and perfectly beachy.

I've been dying to own a Sea Bag for as long as I can remember and this Whale Tale Tote might need to be my first purchase. It's functional and fashionable, which makes it ideal for the sun and sand.

For an extra ounce of protection, I always pack a floppy hat. This sunhat from Hat Attack provides just the right amount of shade for reading in the bright sun--and staying protected.
