Top 5 Beach Essentials

Back to the Beach
by Elissa Watters, guest blogger

On days when the weather is nice, throwing a beach party or just going to the beach with friends is the perfect way to celebrate the summer.  Bring a picnic lunch and spend all day lying on the beach, swimming in the ocean and having fun!

Beach Cover Up by ElQueLLC
1) Beach Cover Up
When you go to the beach, you want to look your best.  Who knows who you might meet.  Check out this cute cover up from Etsy.  Throw it on if you need to cover yourself for a restaurant or simply want to make sure you don't get too much sun.  It’s the perfect beach cover up, and it can double as a halter dress!

2) Flip Flops
Flip flops are essential for any girl heading to the beach.  Find a pair that’s comfortable, and you will soon be living in them.  And they’re perfect for showing off those red toenails!

3) Beach Bag
Need a bag to carry your phone, keys, book and other goodies when you go to the beach?  Check out this fashionable summer beach tote from Target!  It's just the right size (15x16x5 inches), and no one will miss you with that catchy turquoise flare.

4) Sunglasses
Ray-Ban 4171
Don’t forget to wear sunglasses so you’re not blinded by the glare of the sun off the water and sand.  Get a pair of stylish boxy or bug-eye sunglasses.  Check out these Ray-Bans that actress Anna Kendrick has been spotted wearing.

Get a beach ball to throw around with friends.  Everyone can join in as you either toss the ball around or play a more serious game of beach volleyball.  When it gets too windy, put away the beach ball and take out the kite!
