What to Pack for the Beach
It’s Friday morning. You just scored a coveted last-minute invitation for a sunny beach weekend away. Don’t sweat it. Text YES, then skip lunch and dash over to The Shops at Columbus Circle with this shopping list in hand for fashionable weekend essentials. Pick up a sandwich at Bouchon Bakery to eat at your desk, book an early train, and be at your destination in time for sunset cocktails. Cheers to summer!
The first thing on any girl’s list? Her bikini. The nautical navy-and-white striped Ciranoo top ($65) and Ciranek bottom ($65) are dipped in coral for a modern touch and sold separately for a perfectly flattering fit.
Stay cool and comfortable with an organic handkerchief linen wrap tunic ($238). You can use it as a beach cover-up by day. Transform it for evening with a brightly colored scarf or bold beaded necklace, then head to the nearest fish shack for dinner with your crew.
The super comfy and stylish Anica criss-cross sandal ($130) is versatile enough for your outings on land or at sea. Choose spicy orange to coordinate with your bikini.
Top off your nautically themed ensemble with a cheeky straw hat adorned with pom-poms ($49.50). Give it a tilt for ‘tude, and you are on your way.
Who’s that girl? Keep them guessing up and down the beach or the boardwalk with a pair of colorful sunglasses. Go starlet glam with these alluring and uniquely handcrafted frames (price upon request).
And of course, don’t forget your sunscreen. Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion provides high sun protection (SPF 50+) and is water resistant and gentle on your skin. Pack enough to share!
