Everything You Need For Your Summer Beach Trip

This is a sponsored feature. All opinions are 100% our own.

It’s time to tuck away your chic velvet booties, because I now declare it officially flip-flop season! With the weather warming up, there’s no doubt you’re getting into the spirit of summer and are already planning your first big beach trip with your girl gang. That’s why we’ve partnered up with resident summer expert Havaianas to round up everything you need for the top-down, music blasting, iced coffee sipping trip of a lifetime. 

  1. Havaianas take me from the beach to the boardwalk to post-beach day drinks. The brand offers a ton of colorful styles that scream summer (hello Instagram) and will last for summers to come.  

  2. Yup, you read that right. You’re going to need a tote that could practically carry a golden retriever to hold all of your beach day goods—plus the souvenirs and memories you pick up along the way.  

  3. 3. A chic sarong, $28

    Unless you want your cute new one piece to be full of sand, invest in a roll-up mat like this one that protects you (and your stuff) from the sand all while making your Instagram shoot pop.  

  4. You look GOOD on the beach, so why not have all the attention? Draw a crowd or just keep the party going with your BFF’s with a playlist full of Britney Spears, the Spice Girls and JT.  

  5.  

    You work so hard on your skin (and it shows and glows, girl). It might be tempting to come home from your beach trip with a fresh base tan, but you’ll thank yourself later if you use self-tanner and keep your canvas protected (in conjunction with SPF, of course).
