I love going to the beach above most other things, but have none of the right gear, and am looking to up my game in that respect. This water bottle, in a bright Liberty floral, would be a nice start.
File this under totally unnecessary but pretty nifty: a leather towel harness for a more hands-free beach existence.
This insulated waxed canvas tote from LL Bean is backordered (this similar one is available) but it is so good it’s worth waiting for, I think. Such a stylish (and surely durable) way to carry your cold items.
This bright tapestry makes a perfect beach blanket.
For those who are serious about conducting a civilized beach picnic, these lightweight bamboo plates are pretty cute.
And how about some wood cutlery? I dig the look of this stuff, and it’s so damn convenient.
And finally: I seriously crave shade the moment I get to the beach, and am very tempted by this simple, stylish tent. It actually doesn’t look like it would be too tough to set up, either.
