1960'S Beach day dress - How I style a Beach outfit?

I must admit that I am not the most conventional dresser but today I really feel I am echoing the beach and that holiday vibe . Very retro indeed! It's officially my summer holidays (I just have to go back for the odd exam) but I have made full use of my time off and the glorious weather we are having at the moment. I've already set off on my travels and the beach was my first destination. 
This 60's inspired dress has got to be my new favorite 60's inspired piece i own ( I own a lot) it was relatively cheap and is very good quality. I think the stripes in the dress complement my figure well, usually horizontal lines do. I tend to avoid vertical like the plague. 
The button up collar is adorable and adds an extra element to this actually quite simple shift dress. For the beach a simple dress or one piece is a good idea. I really like the simplicity and the effortless look this outfit echoes. The higher neck protects from sun burn but the short sleeves and mini length provides enough skin to attempt to tan or at least be comfortable. I just burn over here.

I took this small shoulder bag with me - enough to carry my small camera and the essentials. But I also brought a much larger bag for everything else. I think bringing a smaller  bag is defiantly a necessity if you're a restless explorer like I .. ha!
