I almost forgot how Memorial Day Weekend kicks off family and friend’s first beach trip of the year until I saw copious pictures on Instagram and Snapchat. Obviously, I’m speaking more for states who have four seasons, and crave to have their first sand-in-the-toes while sipping a Pina colada vacay on their 3 day weekend. I had already started to gather a want list for my beach trips, and now is the best time to help you and I with some irresistible beach essentials. It’s a must to have a cover up, it’s also a must to have a beach bag for your things, but isn’t it even better when they have the coolest designs or statements? I like to go for minimal and classic looks when I travel, like a pair of cut off shorts and tee or a beautiful and unfussy dress to frolic in. I also like to make sure they are the most adorable pieces. Here are 11 beach items that will help you wind down or wind up for your next beach trip.
