OBX Bound! | My Summer Beach Essentials

Beach Essentials

I mentioned in yesterday’s post that I spent many a good year as a pool lifeguard (as well as teaching swim lessons). And in addition to the easy income (remember those days before bills were most of your income?), those summer months also meant a guaranteed golden tan, sun-bleached hair, and lots of time spent catching rays. These days, summer sometimes seems to just blend into the rest of the year — does anyone else feel this way? Which is whyyyy, I’m so excited to be heading down to the Outer Banks (Nags Head, specifically) this weekend to see two good friends tie the knot.

I’m going to be taking full advantage of whatever beach time we might be able to fit in around a few hours of work, a rehearsal dinner, and of course, a sure-to-be-gorgeous wedding. Oh, and the chance to catch up with some of my favorite college friends in a massive beach house rental is a great bonus too!

Before I leave though, I wanted to share a few of my go-to beach essentials — I don’t get beach time that often, so the one or two times a year always have me pining after tons of adorable suits (can you tell I’m having a moment with Topshop) and coverups (sheer but flattering are my faves). Oh, and one more thing: Can someone please make these with me, because they’re too perfect.
