This week’s Fashion Friday?  Clothes & Accessories to make you look like the smokin’ hot babe you are, while you’re laying on the beach this summer.  (Or trying to, as your kids toss sand on your blanket and scream & run around and generally disturb your peace as only your kids can do.)

Nothing says “I’m hot and don’t mess with me” like a pair of chic sunglasses. I have really bad luck with sunglasses; I’m always losing or breaking a pair.  Because of that, I get all of my sunglasses at TJ Maxx – my rule is $19.99 or under simply because I go though them so quickly.  But maybe you aren’t as irresponsible as me and if you aren’t, a pair like these from Coach are beautiful [Coach 210 Sunglasses, $110.99 at Amazon with Free Shipping]:

And a more affordable option from Old Navy if you’re like me [Women’s Cat-Eye Sunglasses, Old Navy $9.50]:

And then it’s always nice to have a fun beach bag. I saw this Straw Tote featured in Real Simple Magazine from Vineyard Vines and of course loved it.  Real Simple readers get a discount and get it for $132 (instead of $165) with coupon code REALSIMPLE20:

And a more affordable option is this Chaps St. Tropez Straw Bag from – normally $59.50, on sale for $35.50:

Lastly, tie it all together with a casual, comfortable and cute summer maxi dress like this Silk Feel Handkerchief Maxi Dress from Amazon for $32.99:
