If you’re like us, the warm weather has you dreaming about escaping to the seaside. But even if you live miles from the coast, you can bring a beach vibe to your city life with a few effortless pieces. That carefree attitude starts with adventure-ready footwear and Sanuk has you covered with its blissfully comfortable sandals in a rainbow of prints. We were inspired by the vibrant Sanuk Yoga Sling 2 sandals — so named because the footbeds are made from actual yoga mats — to put together three looks that can take your spirit from the city to the beach and back. Get inspired by our chill, seaside-chic picks of crocheted pieces, woven accessories and jewelry made from natural materials. These are three outfits that are sure to make you feel like you’re on a permanent beach vacation, no matter where you are.
Look #1: Resort Chic
Whether by the beach or at a street-side cafe, sunset cocktails call for an outfit that shows off your own glow. An ombre swing dress pairs elegantly with resort-inspired accessories like a gold coral cuff, bright ikat clutch and twinkly statement necklace layered with natural stones in contrasting hues. Put together an evening look that doesn’t take itself too seriously by adding a relaxed pair of flat Sanuk Yoga Sling 2 sandals in a fun melon tile print, and prepare to see where the night takes you.

Look #2: Rooftop Pool Party
Rooftop pool parties are a great way to experience a bit of the beach even in the city. Let your outfit echo the DJ’s island vibes in a one-piece with flirty cut-outs matched with shredded denim cut-offs. Accessorize with retro-inspired round sunglasses and a floppy straw hat, then finish your California dreamin’ look with Sanuk’s Yoga Sling 2 sandals. The palm print in sun-saturated colors almost makes you feel the sand between your toes.

Your weekend look should be as up for anything as you are. Make fun a priority in a super-comfy pair of go-anywhere Sanuk Yoga Sling 2 sandals. The congo print plays well with the subdued tropical pattern of these breezy culottes, and a crocheted halter crop top flaunts sun-kissed skin. The only accessories necessary are a stack of classic wooden bangles and a black woven carry-all tote and you’re ready to get out of the city and drive to the beach with the top down.
