Ready to hit the mall for summer shopping? These ten items are bound to prepare you for the best summer ever.
1. Hair scarf
Why not buy one to match every single outfit? These ribbons are the perfect way to spice up an outfit or add some personality to a look. Once you buy one, you're bound to collect a few!
2. Fun glasses
Whether it be on Amazon, from Forever 21, or even 5Below, pick up a pair of fun sunnies and throw them in your beach bag. Sunglasses are essential for those hot summer days and with the latest frames and styles, you're bound to find a few pairs you like!
3. Telephone cord hair ties
Yes. Telephone cord hair ties are a MUST. They're waterproof, colorful, and very stretchy. For my friends who love scrunchies but can't wear them in the ocean, these will be perfectly comfortable for your hair.
4. Reusable water bottle
SAVE THE EARTH. Prevent more trash from piling on the beach and make an effort to bring a reusable water bottle with you. Super important to stay hydrated under the sun, too!
5. Fanny pack
A perfect way to consolidate space for your money, phone, sunglasses, and a small sunscreen! A fanny pack is especially great for people who don't want to bring a big beach bag to the beach.
Even better than a cover-up: a kimono. Super comfy, and lots of different patterns and colors are available. Kimonos are the perfect overlay for a bathing suit if you're interested in leaving the beach for dinner on the boardwalk, or even for a leisurely walk.
7. Waterproof speaker
Not a regular speaker, a waterproof speaker. There is nothing worse than sitting far away from the water JUST so your speaker doesn't get splashed. Save your worries, and get a waterproof speaker so you can jam all you want, wherever you want.
Not a want but a need. Overalls are back! Like a kimono, another cute overlay for a bathing suit.
9. Beach blanket
Better than a towel, and prettier, too! The perfect spot for some pictures, and a big enough space for tanning and enjoying the sunshine.
10. A bathing suit that makes YOU happy
Forget what the media says is trending. Your body is your body! Wear what makes you feel comfortable and happy so you can enjoy your experience. Love your body and how it allows you to enjoy the sunshine!
