Beach Basics Under $40!

Wednesday, March 6, 2019

Whether you are lucky enough to be heading on a winter getaway (can I come?) or you are counting the days until Memorial Day (there are 81), it's time to start gathering your beach essentials. Maybe you need one of everything or maybe you just need 1 or 2 of the above. Don't wait until it's time to pack up your beach bag to discover that you are in need of a new bathing suit or your favorite flip flops are worn thin.

Cover Up - On those days when I'm not feeling so confident in my bathing suit, a cute cover up is a must! I love that this one is colorful and offers plenty of coverage for my arms for days when there's a slight breeze on the beach.

Straw Wristlet - Rather than lugging my beach bag to the concession stands, I'd much rather use something smaller and more functional like this wristlet. It's roomy enough for money, phone, and lip balm. It also has a strap to convert to a crossbody. Available in several prints/designs.

Sunscreen - Just like your AMEX, don't leave home without it! I like the Supergoop formulas because they work well under makeup and don't burn my eyes. There are many different varieties available from sprays to lotions to sticks. Whatever your preference...

Sunglasses - These modified cat-eye sunnies will protect your eyes and keep you stylin' in the sun.

Flip Flops - Save your designer flip flops for aprés beach. A simple, inexpensive pair will serve your well for traipsing around.

Beach Towel - A beach towel is like a phone case: an extension of your personality. So be sure to choose one that's all you! There are so many cute and colorful ones out there.

Bathing Suit - How cute is this suit? I love the style and color (it's available in 3 other colors too!). I especially love the ruffles and the criss cross back.
