3 Fashionably Functional Outfits for a Breezy Beach Day | A Wishlist ft. RoseGal

Hello Graceful Girls!

Going to the beach in late February or early March isn`t very common for a lot of people as most usually go on late March to early May since this is the summertime for a lot of kids and students. However, this is also a great time to reside beside the beach for a few days whether it`s for vacation, recreation or business trip. There aren`t many people lounging in the white or pink sands that a lot of islands in the Philippines have. Although this may seem a great time to go to the beautiful beaches in the provinces, it`s still quite breezy as we`re still Marching towards Summer.

Here are 3 outfits compiled from day to night for a breezy beach day:

1. Classically Cute (Daytime)

This outfit is great for day and semi-formal events, business meetings, a lovely brunch date with your husband or a tour around the area in the morning. It might look quite too much for some people but this outfit is great for a fashionable morning. It can be altered by switching some pieces that suit your needs and where you`re going.
