Beach Essentials 

We just booked our trip to Costa Rica and couldn’t be more excited! I wanted to share some of my absolute favorites for any and every beach trip.

As a new mom I still have a little toning to do (no shame!) so I like to pack a really great one piece. This one from Sun Spot is a serious new favorite of mine and I can’t wait to wear it. It’s so flattering and hugs in all the right places. Athena swimwear has so many great suits right now like this and I’m obsessed. I love a great one piece like this because you can easily throw on some shorts or a cute skirt and wear it out to dinner as a top as well.

Hats and sunnies are always on my beach vacation check list. I always bring multiples of both. Right now my favorite pair of sunnies are from Eye Buy Direct. If you haven’t heard of them, they are amazing. The hardest part is picking out a pair. They also offer UV protective coating on your lenses, just use code WCUVCOATING

Bronzing products…I’m a sunscreen freak (also on my list!) so I have to tan myself in other ways. I am so in love with Eco Tan Invisible Tan from Organic Skincare USA. It’s a one step application that gives you a perfect bronze glow without the orange. For an extra sparkley glow I will layer it with Kopari’s coconut body glow. It smells like a tropical paradise and makes your skin look amazing. I also love love love their coconut melt which we use for virtually everything. Kennedy and I just did deep conditioning treatments with it and I will for sure be bringing it on our trip.

For my hair I like to bring a good salt spray. Right now a favorite of mine is by Parlor, which you can get at Birchbox. It gives your hair a nice wave without that crunchy/hard feeling. I also bring along my Beachwaver for all trips as its so easy to use. It’s a rotating curling iron that creates effortless waves. I love it so much because my hair never used to any sort of curl and with this they last all day. It was the official tool of the Victoria Secret 2015 Fashion Show and is amazing. If I’m in a hurry I will just randomly curl 5 or 6 sections and it looks like I spent hours on my hair, must have!

Comfortable sandals are another must have for me. I got these embellished ones from A’gaci and love the way they look and feel. You can wear them for hours without getting blisters which is a huge plus for me. They also come in a pink/yellow!

I will be making another post of beach must haves for baby too so stay tuned!
