 Jonathan Adler Mykonos Beach Towel

Thick and thirsty, chic and classique! This beach towel is the perfect combination of Chinoise motifs and mod colors: think Jackie O. sunbathing in Capri. Their size makes them perfect for laying out, toweling off, and catching the eye of charming lifeguards and pool boys alike!

J. Crew Panama Hat

The legendary Panama hat gained its iconic status when President Theodore Roosevelt wore one on his visit to the Panama Canal. Since then, these hats have graced the heads of style greats ranging from Ernest Hemingway to Paul Newman (you can’t get much more authentic than that). Woven by hand in Ecuador from fronds of the toquilla palm (so no two are exactly alike), it’s the perfect tomboy touch to pretty much any ensemble.

Fendi Triangle Bikini

Save for the gleaming gold designer-stamped plaque, Fendi’s classic black bikini is elegantly fuss-free. The tie-fastening top makes it easy to find your most flattering fit.

Headhunter War Paint

After years of surfing, lifeguarding and generally living near the shore, brothers Doug and Drew Littlemore felt like they weren’t getting anywhere near the type of sun protection they needed and that all of the creams and sprays they tried failed. So they founded Headhunter, a company that aimed to build “the world’s first surfing sunscreen product.” Designed to stay on even in water, the war paint blocks UV rays but doesn’t block pores. (It’s also PABA-free, fragrance-free and hypoallergenic.)

The Dry Grass of August

Nothing like a great read while vacationing!  In this beautifully written debut, Anna Jean Mayhew offers a riveting depiction of Southern life in the throes of segregation, what it will mean for a young girl on her way to adulthood–and for the woman who means the world to her.

Great for listening to your favorite tunes on the beach or at the pool and it comes it great colors, too!
