Throwback at the Beach

Escaping the city heat and heading to the beach this summer? We are too! The only thing that's more exciting than some time in the sand and a drink in our hand is a new suit and accessories to go with it. Lately we've been inspired by the retro swim trend, and admittedly have been stockpiling high-waisted bottoms. If the high-waisted cut isn't for you, however, you can still get on the retro band wagon with accessories and fabric patterns. Scroll down to see what we'll be wearing at the beach this summer.

Once you've got the look down, it's time to pack your beach bag for your day. As year-round beach bums, we feel we have the ultimate list of must haves (trashy tabloid mags excluded!).

Beach Bag Essentials
Wide brimmed hat that is chic and keeps the sun off your face. 

Reusable water bottle to help you stay hydrated all day.  

Large beach towel in a fun pattern, finding one that can fit two people is ideal. Sharing is caring! 

Small cosmetics bag to organize small items such as lip balm with SPF, a small hair brush, and sunscreen. We also like to include a couple snack-sized Ziploc baggies to protect items like cash, cell phones, and iPods from getting wet.   

Happy Summer!!
