Summer Beach Tips

GLAM Shopping Summer Uncategorized Wishlist

Summertime means many beach trips for these beach babes, but packing for the beach isn’t always easy. We find ourselves pressed to consolidate our perfected routines (typically by Dad) and determined to not over pack, so it’s really important to narrow down our style and beauty rituals to simply the essentials. We’ve found there are three main goals when packing for the beach: Stay cool, stay protected and stay stylish. See below for some of our tips and tricks when it comes to packing for your beach trips this summer!

Summer Tips with Starbucks Iced Coffee

Coffee is always a must, even on vacation, so we stay cool by swapping out our morning cups of coffee for a refreshing Starbucks Iced Coffee drink. We like to bring enough of these babies to be able to throw one in our beach cooler each morning before we head to the beach.

Sunglasses are always a must to keep your eyes protected during a long day in the sun, which is why we like to pack a few pairs, for backup in the case the ocean eats up a pair. [Made-Up-But-Probably-True Fact: The most common place to loose your sunglasses is at the beach.]

Stay stylish with a versatile cover-up, like this white one from Tory Burch. We don’t know about you, but we always treat ourselves to a new bathing suit and we encourage experimenting with different brands. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, new brands like Marysia Swim emerge with newer, fresher styles to try out. We’re so drawn to their suits this summer because of the cool, geometric edging.

These Starbs on-the-go iced coffees are suchhhh a great addition — I drink iced coffee pretty much daily in the summer and it's so great to be able to just pull one out of the fridge and go!
