There’s nothing more annoying than carrying a ton of stuff at the beach. Not only will you look like a bag lady, you probably will bump into everything and everyone before the day is over. To avoid looking like a hot mess, be sure to carry these four essentials with you on your next trip to the beach:
1. A big tote: Make sure you can fit a towel, sunscreen, an extra pair of shoes, and maybe a change of clothes into a sturdy canvas bag. Hanging at the beach can be an all-day event that can run into dinnertime. Carrying these essentials will make sure you’re restaurant ready.
2. A neon colored bikini: Neon is all the rage this summer. Hit the beach in this bright summer trend with halter bikini top and Brazilian bikini bottoms. My neon colors of choice are pink and yellow. I don’t suggest wearing these both at the same time, but this look can be just want you need to boost your beachwear confidence.
3. Cute sandals: My beach sandal of choice is a flat, soft leather gladiator. Get something that wraps around your ankles to help keep you stable on the sand. No metal work though because it will burn its shape right onto your tootsies.
4. Tablet: You’re not going to spend every moment of your day splashing in the water. Catch up on the book you’re reading or your favorite show on your Kindle Fire or iPad. If you have a universal Wi-Fi account, you can watch dozens of your favorite shows and kill some time.
Carry these items with you and be prepared to look effortlessly fabulous on the beach.
