10 Beach Vacation Essentials

1. Lightweight cover-up

I live in my swimsuit on beach vacations, but I always bring a light cover-up. www.asos.com has some great options at reasonable prices.

2. Swimsuits

I love my black bikinis, but I’m also loving whites at the moment & more colorful pieces. The lighter the color, the more tan your skin will look.

3. Floppy hat

This is a MUST for me. I’m a huge fan of protecting my face from the sun. www.oldnavy.com has some really chic ones. If a floppy hat is just not functional for you, go for any hat that will shade your face.

4. Easy maxi dress

Go for one with a fabric that does not wrinkle easily. I also like ones that can double as a cover-up. www.asos.com has some great ones.

5. Strappy sandals

I like sandals that look effortlessly chic & that can be dressy enough to be worn with shorts and a chic top or a maxi dress for dinner. Go for neutral tones that you can use with multiple outfits. No one does them quite like samedelman.com Living in the “Giselle” ones this summer.

6. Shorts

I like denim shorts in different washes and I love a white denim as well, as they are easy to match. The sweetheart shorts from Old Navy fit me well and are flattering to my body type.

7. Jewelry

I always bring one to two colorful statement necklaces just in case, for a dinner outing.

8. Beach tote

This year my beach tote doubled as my carry-on. It converts to a cross body bag and came with this great smaller bag which I used to tote toiletries.

9. Cotton tanks

A MUST. I live in these in the summer. Great ones at Old Navy.

10. Sunglasses

No trip is complete without the right pair of shades. I love them oversized! And a classic aviator as well.
