it feels like summer is flying by at a lightening fast (and painfully hot) speed this year. we’re almost half way through july and i’m still dying to get out of the city for some sun and sand. inspired by amy’s summer-themed living in post (coming up next at 1pm), i decided to dedicate this week’s under $100 to all of the things i’d like to take with me for a day at the beach.
i actually grew up in a , so flip flops and beach towels are practically a way of life for me (i still think beach towels make the best bathroom towels. why would anyone use something smaller?). rather than reliving the gross mash-up of sticky sunscreen bottles, flip flops, and chips covered in sand that were in my bag, i decided to imagine a few beach go-ers that were a bit cooler. for some reason, when i sat back and looked at the collages i made they looked to me like “brunette, blond, and red headed beach-goer”. so now all i can see is one of those (with the appropriate hair-color) wearing and carrying all these items. no matter what you hair color is, i hope you’ll enjoy the selections below. happy beaching!
