Maybe because I'm traveling a lot, stores have been rocking spring and summer floorsets or the out of office messages of my business partners that have me in a beach state of mind! Whatever the reason is, I had to share some of my must have items that will make you look beach ready, are perfect for everyday use or when you want to grab a bag to head out to stay with friends. Roll over images to see why Ole Henriksen, C Booth, Neutrogena, GlamGlow, Organix and Dove are on my list!
What's a beach day or a trip without a fun bag? I'm obsessed with First World Trash is a fab line of accessories which recycles billboards, seatbelts and other items that would go into landfills - and finds their way into a number of amazing pieces (cosmetic bags, wine coolers, etc). Made in Queens NY, Jenelle Malbrough assembles these items into wearable art! Last week when I was traveling to Charleston, I loved carrying my beach tote (pictured above) as my carry on!
