ONE // Thankfully hats are right on trend this summer, because my face needs as much shade as possible when hitting the beach. While I love the popular Panama Hat from J.Crew that everyone is wearing, this chic wide-brim option from Rag & Bone is my favorite on the market.
TWO // Of course a good pair of oversized sunnies are a must when spending the day at the beach. I have been lusting over these glittered ones from Miu Miu since last year.
THREE // A stylish cover-up is necessary for traveling to and from the ocean and to throw on if you’re getting a little too much sun. Calypso St. Barth does everything right, but I especially love this printed poncho.
FOUR // I’m a new e-reader convert. I love how light-weight and easy to read (absolutely no glare!) the Kindle is. Plus, I can carry a whole library in my beach bag if I want!
FIVE // There are so many great designer beach towels out there, but have you seen some of their price tags? This geometric print option from Billabong is only $40. Want an even cheaper option? This one is on sale for $13 at JCPenney.
SIX // While I don’t actually bring these to the beach with me, they’re an absolutely necessity to get my body bikini-ready. These Ouch-Relief Body Wax Strips from Sally Hansen make removing hair a breeze at home!

SEVEN // The hot sun, chlorine and salt water are no friends of my hair. But with Aveda Protective Hair Veil, The Wet Brush and some hair ties from Mane Message I’m able to keep my locks under control.
EIGHT // I don’t mess with fancy sandals at the beach, but love to wear a cute pair of rubber flip-flops.
NINE // This battery-operated beach radio works with your ipod or iPhone, but also includes AM/FM radio. I love how it’s so easily portable.
TEN // SPF is the most essential accessory I bring with me to the beach. I love Supergoop! mist for my body, Bare Minerals powder sunscreen for face touch-ups, and this coconut-flavored lip balm from Sun Bum. All of my sunscreens fit perfectly in my clear Truffle pouch, which are also great to carry my keys, credit card, cash and iphone.
