I’m not sure what the weather is like where you are, but in West Michigan it is HOTTTTT, with no sign of a cool-off this week. And there is only one place I want to go when it’s this hot: the beach. I’ve been beach day dreaming, all day every day, and my illustrations are proof. So I put together an illustrated guide to my top beach day essentials and a round-up of my favorite four picks in each category.
If you can’t make it to the tropics, bring the tropics to you with botanical print two-pieces! Nothing says ‘vacation’ quite like a good palm leaf print!
Protect those precious eyes with a stylish, affordable pair of retro-style sunnies.
Easy on, easy off…because you’ll have your hands full, and the last thing you need is to be worrying about laces or buckles.
Sun hats are 1 part style, 2 parts protection. I like them sturdy and wide-brimmed.
A big straw beach bag is a necessity, and there have never been more great styles to choose from than now.
Beach towels so big and so soft, they’re more like blankets than towels.
