Beach day essentials



Hello June, and helloooo beautiful weather! The weather is slowly getting warmer so it’s time to prepare for beach days. When it comes to packing for the beach you always need simple items that can easily slip on and off like espadrilles or sandals. I recently bought these yellow espadrilles from Soludos. A slip-on shoe is perfect for the warmer months and very easy to wear.

I want to buy a new bikini and I really like the crochet look.  It’s not a new trend but it’s still good to have multiple bathing suit options. Shirt dresses could be another alternative for a beach cover up. I wouldn’t wear this Olivia Palermo shirt dress after I get out the water but I would wear it to the beach. I’ve been eyeing it for some time now so I might buy it soon.

Another beach item you MUST have is a sun hat. During my trip to Florida I desperately needed something to cover my head and I regret not bringing my hat with me. It really does work wonders and you can enjoy your beach day without getting extremely hot. I keep gravitating towards stripes lately and this Lovers and Friends skirt from Revolve is perfect if you’re planning a trip with your boyfriend to The Hamptons, or the Cape. Honestly it works wherever there’s beach houses and restaurants really. Pair it with a white cami and some wedges and you’re good to go.

Lastly, every beach trip needs the perfect beach bag. I just bought a straw beach bag from loft a few months ago and I can’t wait to use it. I usually put my stuff in a really big tote bag so it’s refreshing to finally own an official beach bag. What are some of your beach day essentials? Comment below and tell me what’s some of your favorite things to bring along.
