What to Wear – to the Beach

It’s too hot here so we’re heading to the beach! I sound so spontaneous, don’t I? It just so happens that we (in the Boston area) are in the middle of a heat wave and all I can think about is diving into a cold body of water so we are in fact lucky we were already planning for the beach! And we got our Z a floaty in the shape of a kitty cat. She loves it, obviously – pics soon, I promise. Stay cool!

What-to-Wear-to-the-Beach

1. I wear the Sun-lite cover-up from the Patagonia girls department (the XL fits fine). It has UPF sun protection of 50+ which is main the reason I bought it, but it’s cute too. 2. One-pieces that aren’t matronly are hard to find. J. Crew has a great assortment and if you still need one for the summer the sale suits are an extra 30% off right now with code EXRTRA30. I have the Liberty Ruffled Tank in Amy Hurrel Floral. 3. You need shades for the beach, I love these Toms Sandela sunglasses. And their sunglasses are part of their one for one campaign just like their shoes! 4. A simple read is perfect for the beach (when I’m not chasing after Z). Right now I’m enjoying Revenge Wears Prada (the sequel to the Devil Wears Prada). 5. I love the idea of this Beach Mat with Pillow from Target for lounging at the beach, and it rolls up for convenient schlepping from the car! 6. I still wear classic J. Crew flip flops every summer. and 7. Large, classic L.L.Bean tote to carry your towel, reading material, sunblock, etc…

**Don’t forget your sunscreen! I wear Neutrogena Ultimate Sport on my body and Elta MD on my face.

  1. I enjoyed “Revenge Wears Prada” while on vacation, it’s the perfect beach read! I hope you find some relief at the beach! This humidity is awful.
