WHAT TO WEAR

Solid & Striped Bathing Suit ($188) Solid and Striped’s one pieces are the perfect summer splurge item. Currently, we are obsessing over the new collection designed for Solid & Striped by model Hilary Rhoda and former NHL star Sean Avery. The Hilary one piece is a flattering shape and features a plunging neckline, scoop back, and adjustable crossing straps that can be untied to avoid tan lines.

Gurkees Sandals ($39) are durable, comfortable, and best of all vegan and green! The classic Neptune style is our favorite and is the perfect support you need for a bike ride to the beach or long relaxing walk. Gurkees come in all different colors and styles. Plus they are made right here in the US of A.

 

WHAT TO BRING

Nine Space Towel ($58) We love Nine Space’s hand woven Turkish style cotton towels. They’re lightweight and easy to carry for a long day at the beach. Added bonus, if you’re entertaining this summer throw it on the table and use as a table cloth for that perfect summery touch.

 

Bübi Water Bottle ($24) The Bübi bottles are made from 100% BPA free silicone and completely collapsible for easy storage. Fill it with ice and enjoy coffee and then roll it up and toss in your bag at the end of the day, it’s that easy. Check out this custom design by artist Baron Von Fancy!

Designed with crowds in mind, the umbrella is 6 feet tall and has the adjustable orientation for complete coverage and boasts a wind vent to keep air circulating without blowing away.
