What's in our beach bag this summer?? July 24 2023
These hot summer days call for some time relaxing on the beach and if you are anything like us, your beach bag (and what goes inside of it) can make or break the trip. The type of beach bag that will be used depends on the bathing suit/cover-up duo and the amount of time spent on the beach. Are we doing a full day? Half a day? Will a basket-like bag suffice or should we break out the Chandi hobo bag from Bourbon and Grits?
Your beach bag and the essentials that go along with it are catered to your personal needs. For us, it’s our current read (One Italian Summer by Rebecca Serle), sunscreen (Shiseido SPF 42 and Sun Bum SPF 15), AirPods/headphones, sunglasses, mini spray deodorant, mini body mist (Sol de Janeiro Pink Dragonfruit), a cardholder with only the necessities (ID, credit card, and some cash), a towel, and a water bottle.
4 Ways to Wear a Silk Scarf this Summer June 18 2023
- A Silk Headband: Simply fold your large silk square into a triangle and wrap it around your forehead. Be sure to tie in the back where the corners of the triangle meet. This look is perfect for the beach and strolling the streets of Palm Beach.
- A Handbag Accessory: A lot of bags on the market right now are a little too plain for the like many with this minimalistic trend going around currently. To add some pizzazz, pick a fabulous scarf that matches the color of the purse and either wrap the handle with the scarf or tie a bow at one of the corners.
- A New Belt: Need we explain more? Fold your belt into a rope-like shape and loop it through the holes of your pants. Meet at the front and tie either a bow or a neat knot and say goodbye to the days when you are only wearing jeans and a plain white T-shirt because this will surely elevate your look.
- A Necktie: An oldie but a goodie. Pick a favorite scarf of yours and tie it any which way around your neck. Pro tip? Layer with some gold necklaces to elevate your accessory game.
