Beach Essentials

It's been a busy few weeks but school is officially Out for Summer, and this busy Hamptons Mama cannot wait to plant herself on one of our incredible beaches or by the pool. Here are some of my favorite beach essentials.

I love the beach and the sun, unfortunately it took me a long time to understand how damaging the sun is to my skin, so I am careful now to always protect it

A great Hat s always in my beach bag and this one from Tracy Watts is just perfect

I love a lightweight sunscreen that won't make my skin breakout, I am loving this new ClearySheer line from Coppertone and what says summer more than Coppertone!

So now we are protected, now let's talk beach style
I love a lightweight cover-up like this one from Tiare Hawaii, and of course the perfect bikini like this one from Acacia, I love these sunnies from Ray Ban these flip flops from Havaianas  this Beach Riot towel and this fantastic beach bag from Star Mela which I found in one of my favorite Westhampton stores Blue 1, where you can also purchase the hat...

Summer Uniform


Redundant: adj
Characterized by verbosity or unnecessary repetition in expressing ideas
Yes, yes I know I sound redundant, Levi's again, but they truly are one of the key pieces, of my Summer Uniform. I have been wearing Levi's for years and they are one item I am never without during the summer. Wearing them for day is a no brainer, but what about for a night out? 
You can Effortlessly dress them up for a night out on the town.
Pair them with a classic blazer like this one from Mango, a simple tank like this from J Crew, a cool vintage belt like this from Ralph Lauren, and of course a killer pair of shoes like these Givenchy wedges which are on sale at Barneys

I Loved Everything

So it's not very often that I receive a box and I absolutely love everything that I ordered. A lot of times I order things with a wait and see mentality and usually end up sending most of the order back. But when  I opened my most recent Zara order I was so excited that I loved everything.
