Swimming Essentials

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I feel like summer essentials are just one of those things that change every year. I almost never wear the same bathing suit two years in a row, and my beach bag almost always looks like it’s been through a tsunami at the end of just one season, let alone trying to make it through two. Granted, this could have something to do with my getting bored easily, but it is what it is.

Am I the only one that trades everything out each year? Please say you do too so that I feel a little less shamed. Nonetheless, this my current summer wish list. Also I should add that my summer wish lists never actually fully purchased (if at all) so don’t think of me as too fancy, we’re just wishing here.

P.s.- My little summer secret is to buy multiple tops to mix and match with basic bottoms, which makes it easy to switch it up without the extra cost. Do you have any summer essential secrets of your own to share?

1 Urban Outfitters donut pool float, $18 // 2 Zara women’s leather sandals, $59 // 3 Anthro maajii bikini top, $65 // 4 Bumble & Bumble surf spray // 5 Latitude blue striped beach towel, $45 // 6 Topshop polka dot strappy cover up // 7 J. Crew anchor bikini top, $54

    Where’s the like button for all of them? :)

    Everyone should have the surf spray!

  • LOVE these!! especially the playsuit and the anchor bikini top. can’t wait for summer! p.s: you’re not at all alone in trading out every year. :)

  • I have a few staples, like shorts & floaty skirts but like to mix in a few trendy pieces. Stripes are always a summer must-have for me too! And for whatever reason I ALWAYS want a new bikini – even if I only go to the beach once a summer (no car…). Haha. I like the Jcrew bikini top. So cute!
