Having fair skin makes me particularly prone to sunburn.  I like to hide out in the shade, or make my own shade with a great floppy hat. (available at

Cover up
No trip to the beach is complete without a cover up.  This t-shirt dress cover up is an easy addition to a beach bag, and always looks effortless. (available at

Not only do you have to protect your skin from harsh UV rays, but your eyes need protection as well.  An amazing pair of shades will help you look great too! (available at

Summer Reading

Whether your lounging poolside or stuck indoors this summer you can’t go wrong a good book.  Summer reading is my favorite part about vacation, I am currently reading Atonement by Ian McEwan (available at your local library,, and Barnes and Noble)

Sun Dress

Packing light is important when traveling, especially if you have to share a suitcase with two boys.  I love sun dresses for summer time because they’re easy to pack without getting wrinkled, and can be dressed up or down for many occasions. (available at

Comfortable Shoes

If you are traveling by air, by sea, or by land it is important to have a comfortable pair of shoes for walking.  Having achy feet can easily ruin a wonderful trip.  These Bensimon tennis shoes are easy to pack into even the smallest luggage and are simple to just slip on and go. (available at

Enjoy the weekend, and a great start to the summer!
