Beach Ya To It: 4 Essentials for Days in the Sun, Sand and Water

Temps are up. Sunblock’s on. Limbs are out. Yes, it’s officially SUMMER this weekend! And we’re *all* in need of a serious dose of vitamin sea. Ocean, lake, pool—any will do!

So whether you’re heading out for a solo dip or social distancing on the sand with a loved one or some gull-friends, we’ve got you covered with 4 smart and beach-chic essentials below.

CATCH SOME RAYS: Ray-Ban Original Aviator Sunglasses                 
Go ahead and look at the bright sidethese classic shades have your eyes covered! Ray-Ban aviators are one of *the* most iconic sunglasses of all time for a reason. Sleek metal frames, teardrop-rectangular shape rims (flattering for all faces), and dark green non-polarized lenses feel urban and beachy rolled into one.

Wear this pilot-inspired pair for Cali-tomboy style and 365-days-of-sun (and 100% UV protection) whether you’re laying out, playing sand volleyball or driving along the coast. Buh-bye, squinty eyes!

STASH & SHORE: Roxy Sun Seeker Tote Bag
A staycation for beach essentials! This Roxy tote makes any venture to the water a breeze with its roomy 30 liter (nearly 8 gallon) capacity—perfect for tossing in *all* the things from sunscreen to snacks—and its pretty straw exterior covered in sandy neutrals, shell-whites, deep ocean blue and pops of coral.

An inner snap closure and zip pocket will keep out the grit if it’s windy, and the braided handles fit comfortably over the shoulders. Just looking at this bag will inspire you to pack up and say ‘sea ya later!’ at every opportunity.

SOOTHE THE SOLE: Birkenstock Florida Fresh
Relax, explore and soak it all—these earthy slides take you anywhere and everywhere under the sun (and sand…and water!). These Birkenstocks are designed with the classic contoured cork footbed you love, a feminized trio of slender buckled straps *and* an extra layer of foam underfoot.                                                                                              
The best part: the fade- and water-resistant Birko-Flor® synthetic upper looks like leather but requires no break-in and is stress-free to clean (from gritty sand to trail debris). Life isn’t better in flip-flips—it’s better in Birks!

TAKE THE PLUNGE: Go Figure Fit-And-Flare Dress
Meet your new summer LBD…the little BEACH dress! Bright rather than black (and begging for flirty fun in the sun), this frock is covered in a splashy pattern of your choice and a soft and breathable poly/spandex material.

Flattering for all with a fitted tank bodice and flared skirt, you can wear this piece as a fashionable swimsuit cover-up (aka: outfit-in-seconds) in between swim breaks—or for date night on the boardwalk. Dress up, dress down, and accessorize as you please!

We really hope you’re able to soak up the sun (and splashin’ waves) this summer! Stay cool and cover up in the hottest summer styles & accessories —and don’t forget to tag us along on your #beachvibes on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest ??☀️
