August is here and the summer is wending its way towards the end. For those of you who have yet to book that beach trip you’ve been promising yourself or those that just want to sneak in a few more days in the sun, it’s not too late. Here is our list of the ten things you’ll need for your weekend escape. Grab these summer essentials, pack your bags and set sail.
1. Slip-On Sandals
When you’re at the beach, you want sandals that can easily slide off as you walk into the sand and slip back on when we want to head off for a bike ride.
2. Delicate Gold Jewelry
Although it’s hot and you want to wear as little as possible, that doesn’t mean you can’t accessorize. Just keep it simple and light. And how great does gold look with a tan?
3. Denim Cutoffs
Denim shorts are de rigueur for summer. Throw these on over your swimsuit and mosey into town for a day of shopping.
4. One-piece Suit
Nothing says beachside chic like a great maillot.
Slip it on over your swimsuit and meet friends for sunset cocktails.
6. Beachy Sweater
It may be hot by the water during the day, but as the sun sets, the beach quickly cools down and you’ll be happy to have a cozy but light pullover.
An obvious beachside essential!
8. Printed Beach Towel
Ditch your dodgy old towel and upgrade to something far more fun. Why go for the basic boring towel when there are so many delightful options out there?
9. Drapey Summer Top
Easy, breezy and just as perfect with cutoffs as it will be with a maxi skirt for a night out.
10. Beach bag
A great beach bag looks cute but can still carry all of your necessities – a towel, cover-up, sunscreen and even snacks for an afternoon picnic.
