Summer is in full swing and hopefully you’ve got big plans to soak up some well-deserved Vitamin D. Before you dig your toes into the sand, make sure you are equipped with proper beach gear. Have a look at our favorite must-haves for FUN in the sun.
1. A turkish towel or fouta is lightweight, thin and super absorbent, making it THE towel/fashion statement for the beach. Nicole maintains that there are at least a dozen chic ways to wear a fouta. This beauty from Serena and Lily, in a timeless stripe color combination, reverses to soft terry. 2. Havaianas, the most comfortable flip flop EVER is very affordable with tons of fun colors and styles. 3. A must-fave from Ili’s beach bag, Aveda Sun Care Protective Hair Veil protects your hair from sun exposure with a UV defense mist derived from wintergreen and cinnamon bark oils. 4. This packable straw hat from J Crew, is crafted from malleable (stretchy) raffia fiber designed to retain it’s shape no matter how many times you squeeze it into your suitcase, carry-on or beach bag. 5. Beverages. Yes, wine in a small, cute can. We all agreed on these refreshing sparkling rosé minis, the latest from Francis Ford Coppola Winery’s Sofia label (named after Sofia Coppola). The new flavor features hints of red currants, pomegranate, strawberries, and peaches. Cheers to a small buzz. 6. Baby Beach Polarized Aviator sunglasses from Maui Jim not only look awesome but are constructed with Superthin Glass that’s shatter and scratch resistant making them the perfect choice to ride in a beach bag when you’re not sporting them on your head. 7. Sunscreen is a MUST. In Kirstin’s bag you’ll find Anthelios 50 by La Roche Posay for your face, tinted for a warm glow that dries quickly to a matte finish. Safe for sensitive skin and fragrance free. 8. A good read. Whether you’re a book person (Amy) or an e-reader (Katelyn), the beach is a perfect time to indulge in a great story. This Amazon Paperweight delivers crisp, clear type with no glare in bright sunlight. 9. Hair ties. Katelyn started this trend in the studio and for good reason. Dress up your pony tail with strong grip—no rip, Teleties. Great for wet hair, these special ties are waterproof and comfortable, sold in packs of three with plenty of color and size choices. 10. Last, but never least, THE bag. This Summer Straw Beach Bag is durable, spacious and rocks a blue and white lining that matches the inside strap and top detail. If you must, it has a cell phone pocket, and an interior zipped compartment.
We wish for you many beautiful summer days. Happy 4th of July from all of your friends at Terracotta!! —Love life at home.
