fp holiday gift guide: sandy

time for the last part of our holiday gift guide… it’s cold here in philly but we can’t forget about the sandys out there in warm climates, or who are just beach girls at heart. i’m one of them :)

sandy spends her holiday at – where else? – the beach! she loves going in winter because its quiet and peaceful.  she can take a walk on the beach at sunrise and be completely alone with her thoughts, only the sound of crashing waves interrupting her. she lights candles, drinks tea and catches up on her reading, and at night she grabs a blanket and heads to the beach for a bonfire with friends.

sandy can never have too many bathing suits, and our new swim shop has some beauties – she’d love them all but the mantauk reversible bikini is like two in one! she’s always losing her shades at the beach so a new pair of sunglasses is a great stocking stuffer, and she always needs more surf wax. sandy lives in our beach line and the move west maxi dress is a piece she can layer with in winter or wear over her bikini as a beach cover up.  the sundial tee and cassidy hoodie are other great layering pieces she’ll love, and the croft felt hat will keep the sun out of her eyes! sandy’s a big fan of our bralettes, especially the bandeaus – sometimes she wears them as bikini topsstraw bags are her favorite for days at the beach and she can take the pendleton blanket along with her to bonfires.  she likes natural, rustic accessories so she’d love the studded yuma ring, foothills leather cuff or mayan medallion necklace. finally,  she’d love the wool and the gang knit-your-own-bag kit for rainy days when she can’t surf!

check out the gift guides for lou, candy, meadow and ginger too.

summer getaways – the beach

she loves the sand between her toes and salt water in her hair, and the sun brings a sparkle to her eye.  her style is easy and effortless- soft materials, solid colors and silhouettes that can be sexy when dressed up.  the most important thing is comfort because she never knows what the day will hold- it could end cuddled up in blankets by a beach bonfire or with a night on the town so versatility is key.  she’s all about the layers upon layers in the winter but she lives for spring, summer and splashing in the surf.

when thinking about sandy the lyrics to the beatles song “julia” always come to mind.

sandy’s summer getaway is the beach, whether that be a tropical destination like vieques in puerto rico or the california coast.  she always packs light- easy pieces that can be worn as beach cover-ups during the day and then dressed up if she goes out at night, and a warm sweater or jacket is a must for evenings when the breeze chills her sun burnt skin.  in her beach bag are definitely a few items from – what else? – our beach line; sunglasses and a big brimmed hat to shade her eyes, sandals and some accessories to throw on at night time.
