His & Hers beach weekend

Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start of summer, and while in many places summer weather started months ago, here in Connecticut, it's almost like a switch was flipped on Wednesday and suddenly it's summer, with temperatures in the high 80's. The warm weather looks like it's going to be sticking around too, and while I don't have any official plans for my Memorial Day weekend yet, I'd love it if I could get to the beach.

While I'd love to add some new swimwear to my wardrobe, I certainly don't need a new suit (plus I'm still trying to not shop). Sean on the other hand desperately needs to visit the mens swimwear section at House of Fraser and get a new pair of trunks for the summer so there won't be another repeat of last year when I planned a beach day for us and he wore shorts, a button down shirt, and boat shoes - and I dragged him into the water anyway.

  1. Yea, I want another bathing suit too for my impending beach trips but I have 6 and definitely don't need more! Ha ha.

  2. We had our long weekend here last weekend and it did feel like the beginning of summer - except that it was exactly when the rain suddenly came back! We've had a cool wet week so I haven't been feeling especially summery but I definitely do have beach season in the back of my mind and I would love a new pair of espadrilles for my collection this season. The wedge pair in this selection is fabulous.

  3. Such a cute suit, and I need that bag! I'm ready for a beach weekend too.

  5. That colourful swimsuit is gorgeous. I like these pieces, and it's nice that you've included bits for him too.

  6. I can feel you. It seems that while we are overflowing with fashion belongings, our significant others are always in need of something.

  7. I hope you do make it to the beach this weekend! I love all these fun picks--especially that cute striped suit! I'm in the market for one but haven't yet started the search.

  8. Oh I love that beach tote! Hopefully you do get to go to the beach - glad the weather is better for you! :)

    It's funny as the weather has changed here suddenly too - much cooler in the mornings now, and not as hot during the day. I think we skipped autumn and went straight to winter, and you seem to have skipped spring and gone to summer, haha!
