Beach Essentials!

I am currently at the beach for my last beach vacation of the summer *tear*.  I have always loved the beach and enjoy every moment sitting in my chair with the breeze keeping me cool while soaking up the Florida sun and keeping my feet out of the sand (I hate for my feet to be sandy).  As I feel it is ALWAYS important to dress to impress, I feel the same about dressing for the beach.  I have my beach essentials to help me do so.  

My very favorite Bandeau! The Lilly Pulitzer Keene Bandeau In Shorely Blue Mini Toucan Tango fits so perfectly and comes in so many cute patterns! 

This Lilly Pulitzer Insulated Cooler in Fallin' in Love is most definitely one of my beach essentials.  Even though it is a cooler, I use it as a beach tote.  It is a great bag for a great price!  Being a cooler, it is so easy to clean :)

These adorable croakies that match my cooler bag help me to "Follow The Sun" along with my sunglasses, of course :)

These Tory Burch Oversized Sunglasses In Sunflower have been a must have for me this Summer! This color yellow makes me so happy.  And the temples of these shades are very flexible and almost bendable!  That makes them more durable.  They look so cute on!!

Tory Burch Flip Flops are most definitely another Beach Essential!  I have been wearing mine for five years now and am still enjoy them!

I wouldn't go out to the beach without my Lilly Pulitzer beach towels! These were a free gift when I purchased my Summer wardrobe at Lilly :)

When I go out to the beach, I MUST have my hair pulled up and off my shoulders!  Something you may not know about me is that I LOVE to braid, twist, and pin up my hair.  I've learned so many styles from YouTube.  Here are a few of my favorite styles to wear on the beach.

Always top off your beach outfit with a cute pair of earrings!  This is the only item of jewelry that won't give you a tan line, and earrings will compliment any up-do :)
These are by Marjorie Baer.  She designs so many gorgeous two-tone Earrings!


                                                 
Even Jaycee knows that she much look her best on the beach!  She loves her polka dot bikini :)

I would have posted my beach essentials earlier if my blog was up at the beginning of summer (it has only been up for four weeks).  Even though summer is coming to an end, I'm enjoying my beach essentials here on my last beach trip before the new semester starts! 

The next few days, I will be having some guest bloggers from my VERY favorite blogs! I am so excited to share their fabulous ideas on A Preppy State of Mind! :)

Stay Tuned!!
