Beach Day Picks to Kick-Off Summer

Now that summer has officially arrived, I have selected a few beach-ready faves to ring in the season. Of course, I also highly recommend a good UV beach umbrella, UV protective clothing to wear when you need more than just your swimming suit, lots of high SPF sunscreen, water etc., but I just wanted to celebrate a few favorite finds to wear at the beach.
Wallaroo Hats ($43.00-$67.00 each from Wallaroo Hat Company): Since all seasons require sunscreen and sun protection, a good wide-brim hat with a UPF rating is a great way to offer your head, hair, face and eyes added protection from the sun. Wallaroo Hat Company makes hats with a UPF rating of 30+ and 50+, and therefore they offer great protection from the sun when you are outdoors having fun.

According to Wallaroo Hat Company,

Wallaroo hats merge fashion and protection through their UPF rating of +50 meaning they block out up to 97% of the sun’s rays.

Look for our sun icon on our sun protection hats to determine which ones have a UPF rating of 30+ or 50+. These fabrics are tested by the Australian Radiation Protection Agency and block 96 to 97.5% of the sun’s ultraviolet rays. Ultraviolet radiation, or UV, is present in sunlight. The Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) shows how well a fabric protects your skin from solar UV. Always remember that a Wallaroo Skin Cancer Foundation approved hat only protects the skin it covers. Safeguard the rest of your body by wearing sunglasses and sunscreen.

UPF measures the amount of UV radiation that penetrates a fabric and reaches the skin. The tightness of the weave, the weight, type of fiber, color and amount of skin covered all affect the amount of protection provided. UPF is for clothes and fabrics.

Big Sunglasses with UVA & UVB Protection: These are Stella McCartney glasses from a couple of seasons ago, but they are still a popular shape and they are big enough to give my eyes lots of coverage– especially when paired with my big hat.

IVY Swimwear Rosella Black in Nude Mesh ($72.99 from IVY Swimwear and Amazon): A fun bikini, or one-piece, is always a must-have for a day at the beach. I do not lay out to tan, and instead seek shelter under an umbrella or anywhere shade can be found, but a good bathing suit is essential for playing in the water!

According to IVY Swimwear,

This is the perfect lil tanning bikini! The gold clip on the top is perfect for push up support, while the gold minimal adjustors on the bottom allow for the straps to be adjusted to fit your  curves. We are obsessed with the simple nude mesh fabric on this set. The black and nude color blocking will surely make this bikini stand out from the crowd! 

Birkenstock Gizeh Birko-Flor Sandals ($99.95 from Nordstrom, Macy's, Bloomingdale's and Amazon): I have 3-4 pairs of these amazing sandals because they are incredibly comfortable and I just love everything about them. They are perfect nearly all year long in Southern California, and they look great with just about any outfit! They are definitely beach-ready!

According to Birkenstock,

Available in an array of colors, this flip-flop is fitted with a molded footbed and topped with a Birko-Flor strap, cut from fabric with a leather-like finish. The toe piece is made of flexible resin, anatomically designed to fit comfortably between the toes, and the soft suede insole absorbs moisture and feels great against the skin.


  • Adjustable strap with buckle closure
  • Contoured footbed with arch support
  • Synthetic upper/leather and textile lining/synthetic sole

ATRAC Magnetic Bracelet Keychain in Black Vegan Leather ($27.00 from ATRAC): This ingenious magnetic keychain will prevent you from losing your keys, and you can wear it around your wrist or attach it to anything metal. It is truly multifunctional and very durable, and I am so happy because it has eliminated the stress of thinking that I lost my keys, or trying to figure out what to do with them when I don't have pockets or a purse on me (which is most often the case when I go for long walks on the beach, or just through my neighborhood).

According to ATRAC,
