Beach days are a common occurrence here in Florida, so what better way to hit the shore than in style with your favorite brands. Here are my personal beach essentials when it comes to fashion.
COVER UP | Always have a cover up handy when you know you're going to be in the sun all day. It's not only stylish, but also protects your skin from harsh rays. I love this navy and white embroidered tunic from Tory Burch. It's simple and sheer for the beach, but could easily transition to lunch or dinner by the ocean with a pair of cute flats.
FLATS | Speaking of flats. Even though you're not going to really be wearing your sandals in the sand, it's still a good idea to pack a cute and style pair in case you need to run to the bar to grab drinks or head to lunch or dinner nearby. This Steve Madden cognac sandals are just perfect: simple and sophisticated. They also come in white and black!
SUNNIES | Protect your eyes! Eyes are sensitive to light, so if you're at the beach all day you don't want to be straining your eyes the entire time. Pick a frame that fits your face properly, but showcases you personal style. Sunnies come in ALL shapes and sizes so play around with it!
TOTE | Perfect for carrying around all your beach goodies! Snacks, water bottles, sunscreen [can't forget that!], a small radio, etc. Invest in a nice, quality beach tote. It will last longer and not fall apart from the elements of the beach.
