beach necessities

1  /  2  /  3  /  4  /  5

I've been M.I.A. these past few days because I've been getting ready to leave for vacation next week. Like almost all East Coasters, we're going to the beach! (North Carolina's Outer Banks, to be specific.) Growing up on the coast, going to the beach (or, as we from Jersey like to say, "going down the shore.") is a part of life, and since it's such a family thing growing up, packing one's own beach bag for the first time is a rite of passage. No, seriously, the first time I really felt like a woman was when I packed my own beach bag to take a day trip in Ocean City, NJ with some friends while I was in high school. I forgot the sunscreen and came home looking like a boiled lobster. Not a good look. Anywho, I'm on the hunt for a new gigantic beach towel and a good book to read but here are a few things that I certainly won't be heading to the beach without this summer. (Oh, also, the bathing suit above is the first suit I've bought in almost four years. Intense, right?)


Opinions are my own. I'm not being compensated for mentioning the items listed above. (Although it'd be nice, right?) *Gratuitous winking emoticon.*


  1. Loving the suit! I actually just bought like three suits for this summer after not having bought any in yearssss. Have tons and tons and tons of fun! I'm 25 minutes away from the beach so I tend to take it for granted a lot. I should get on that.

  2. what i would give for that bag & those sunnies! oh, and also for a beach nearby. ; )

  3. I've found over the years that Ralph Lauren has some great beach towels that are big, but not too massive. Always classy, too. ;)
