Top 5 Beach Essentials

It's officially June and the start of holiday season, and with a trip to Crete coming up I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to start a Summer series! The first post is about my top five beach style essentials...

I can’t wait for trips to the beach this Summer and a beach towel is definitely an essential for me. I’m in love with the abstract round beach towels from Australian brand, The Beach People. They offer four different hand drawn printed towels complete with tassle detail – what more could you ask for?

Of course a bikini or swimsuit needs to be mentioned! I always struggle to find a bikini with a print I like on, but Zulu and Zephyr have a lovely range. For me, Australian brands always offer the best beach essentials but ASOS is also a go-to for swimwear. 

You can’t forget a colossal floppy hat to protect your face and scalp from the sun – it’s also perfect for channelling your inner Brigitte Bardot!

Packing a pair of sunglasses is an obvious necessity! There are so many styles to choose from, ranging from retro cat eye to John Lennon-esque sunglasses that I usually end up with a million pairs.

Perhaps not an essential for everyone but to easily add a bohemian vibe to your outfit, a few pretty rings are a must. Dixi are the bohemian jewellery treasure trove for this essential!
