Beach Bag Must-Have’s For Summer 2013


Beach Bag Must-Haves


MPR has summer on the brain.

Here are our beach bag essentials for summer 2013:


1. No beach bag is complete without a trusty blanket; hit the sand with this Ralph Lauren Cabana Floral Beach Towel. It’s a classic.

2. These Gucci Gold Aviator Shades will not only turn heads, but also block your eyes from harmful UV rays.

3. A personal every day must-have, Hempz Ultra Moisturizing Herbal Lip Balm is especially great for maintaining soft lips in the summer heat.

4. Achieve gorgeous tanned skin in half the time with Maui Babe Browning Lotion. Safe for all skin types, this product is also compatible with sunscreen.

5. I always fill up a Spray Bottle with salt water when I get to the beach. Works wonders as a cooling mist. Pick one up at your local convenient store or pharmacy.

6. Hydrate naturally with Vita Coco Pure Coconut Water. It really is just like putting a straw in a coconut!

7. MPR loves Nasty Gal’s lucite Neon Summer Clutch; perfect for storing electronics, keeping them safe from water and sand damage.

8. Escape with a good read. MPR recommends a dose of global lifestyle.

9. Hitting the beach with friends & Co.? Jam out to your favorite summer playlist with Jawbone’s Jambox Ultra Portable speaker.

10. Post-sun skin care is a must-do! Nourish your sun-kissed skin with Clarins Ultra-Hydrating After Sun Moisturizer after a long day at the beach.


Happy beaching!


Contributing writer Brittney Levine put together a few looks that are perfect for the summer. “The relaxed, gypset lifestyle of the surfing world has become a top trend this summer”, says Brittney. Try incorporating bold colors and billowy maxi dresses that are ideal for both day & night.

Here are my favorite suggestions offered by Brittney:

SURF-INSPIRED TREND: BOLD COLOR – Trapeze Tops/Cuffed Denim Shorts

Denim never goes out of style, and the cuffed look helps to accentuate the legs.

Bold Trapeze tops are the newest craze in fashion and look great on all body types.  The loose, airy tanks are comfortable and look great in all tones.

-Bags from Live Worldly have been reconstructed from Guatemalan skirts and are the new must-have for celebs like Kate Hudson!

Head wraps are the perfect hair accessory that plays into the boho chic feel of the outfit.


Maxi dresses have been all the rage this summer. Perfectly paired with a great tote and sandals, they can be worn during the day or out at night!

Strappy flat sandals are a perfect accoutrement.

This crystallized turtle ring from Live Worldly is an adorable accessory to match a great dress.
