  • Supergoop!


  • Pinkham Millinery




  • Dawn Sharp


  • Jawbone

1. City Sunscreen Serum by Supergoop! This serum contains SPF 30 and is lightweight, yet effective. I admit I’m not always the best at applying sunscreen daily, but this totes seems manageable. Available at (where I—full disclosure—just started working as a graphic designer, giving me a bird's eye view of the latest in boutique beauty products).

2. Straw hat fedora by Pinkham Millinery. A slight '40s glam vibe with an added benefit of shielding your skin from harsh rays seems like a no-brainer to me. Add a retro one piece suit, and oversized sunnies for the complete beach babe look.

3. Local brand Shwood hand crafts each pair of shades, and has just debuted their latest style, The Florence. Don’t you like her?

4. Handmade in Columbia this super colorful tote would make even Rainbow Bright jealous. It’s the perfect bag to jazz up an lbb (little black bikini) available at Alder & Co.

5. Dawn Sharp’s adorable high-waisted retro bikini is the right mix of sexy and sweet, the flattering cut suits all kinds of body types. Can be customized by color choice, click here to order.

6. Jawbone’s Jambox is small but mighty. Pumping out mega sound, from just a little speaker, this handy gadget connects to your Iphone or portable listening device through Bluetooth! It’s pretty awesome, and comes in lots of great colors click here for more deets.
