Happy Friday to all and to all a good weekend! As I get ready for work, my sunburn reminds me of a simpler time when I was laying on the serene beach reading my favorite magazine and soaking in some serious Vitamin-D in Florida. This weather warning in affect in D.C. is definitely not bringing back those summertime vibes. Today I'm sharing all of my beach essentials and everything you need to have some much needed fun in the sun!
Lack of Color Hat
This hat probably looks very familiar, not only did I mention it in last weeks Friday Favorites but I also had it glued to my head all weekend long on social. I recieved a ton of questions about this stand out star and I would be remised if I didnt mention it again. Unfortunately, my color is now sold out but you really cant go wrong with any of these neutrals! Also if you're lookign to save some money on shipping and avoid Australian shipping costs buy off Amazon!
While my mom flipped through the latest edition of People, to get her weekly celeb gossip fix I was working on my inner zen and learning about Ayurvedic doshas. Mantra Mag is not just for yogis. It's the ultimate wellness magazine filled with meditation practices, healthy recipes, beautiful travel destinations and stress reliever tactics! I snag the latest editions at Whole Foods. I love to read Mantra beachside, its much more relaxing than "which celeb couple just filled for divorce".
Sun Bum SPF 50
Sun Bum is my favorite sunscreen for a multitude of reasons. I spent a ton of time researching ingredients of sunscreens that were the best match for me and the safest and this brand is a stand out star. Not only is it gluten-free and vegan but all of their products are reef safe which is super important and something that a lot of people overlook! This sunscreen also smells amazing, "It's a yes from me Dawg".
Moroccan Beach Tote
I looked high and low for my beach bag but its about 7 years old so I found some gorgeous updated versions that will last you forever! Woven straw bags to me are classic and practical beach companions. I love this updated metallic fringe style (did I mention its on sale!) I also found an almost identical replica of my bag here for a little more pizazzzzz!
Ring it on Crinkle Bikini
Remember NastyGal? Well, I never forgot and let me tell you there swim is everything right now. not only are they discounted 50% off but its such a steal for a classic look!! RUN DON'T WALK.
SPLURGE: Cult Gaia Dress
Cult Gaia's latest collection is nothing short of enchanting, these silhouettes the past few seasons have been truly perfection. I would live in every single one of their pieces if I could afford it! For now I'll have to settle on a few of their gorgeous bangles and bags. Serious swoon.
Stay tuned for more Friday Favorites!
