Salty air, beach waves, sand in your toes and boardwalk fries in hand—is there any other way you could imagine spending your warm summer days? Probably not!

After Memorial Day we head down to the shore every chance we get, with sunblock and all other beach essentials in tow. Whether you’re a lay-out-all-day kind of gal or you crash into those salty waves you surely have a mental list of must-brings that find their way into your beach bag before every trip.

We know we do and we’re sharing it with you! Inspired by our latest summer arrivals, here are our picks!

A cozy sweater acts as the best cover-up and keeps your warm for late night beach walks. Protect your face and your hair from the sun with a straw hat, love the pompoms on this one! And of course sandals, these canvas knot sandals from Souldos are a step up from the basic flipflop.

The larger the beach bag the more fruit you can pack in it! This is one of our favorite beach bags simply because of its carryall body. You can walk to the beach completely hands-free, perfect for capturing the best Insta-stories! Another great sandal option and one we love each year—Tkees, their minimalistic style and clean lines make them the chicest shore shoe!
