Some of my favorite Oribe products, including <a href='/index.php/products/view/2018' target='_parent'>Côte d'Azur Hair Refresher</a> and <a href='/index.php/products/view/1473' target='_parent'>Après Beach Wave and Shine Spray</a>.

I just got this <a href='http://www.thufri.com/' target='_blank'>ThursdayFriday Bag</a> as a gift, and I think it will make the perfect beach accessory—it’s canvas, but it has a luxe bag printed on both sides, the best of both worlds! I plan on stocking the following inside:<br />
<br />
I have long, thick hair, so I make sure my blowouts last a while. <a href='/index.php/products/view/2018' target='_parent'>Côte d’Azur Hair Refresher</a> helps keep my mane looking and smelling fresh, especially after a day at the beach.  <br />
<br />
With fair skin like mine, I can’t afford a sunburn. <a href='http://www.neutrogena.com/product/ultra+sheer+body+mist+sunscreen+broad+spectrum+spf+100-.do' target='_blank'>Neutrogena’s Sheer Body Mist</a> sunscreen gives me good coverage without feeling thick or sticky.  <br />
<br />
The taupe color of this <a href='http://www.trinaturk.com/Swimwear/Bikinis/Buckle-Solid-Halter-and-Side-Hipster/b/28501?c=469&s=532' target='_blank'>Trina Turk Bathing Suit</a> looks good with my paler complexion, and the flower detail adds interest. <br />
<br />
I’m buying these funky <a href='http://www.singer22.com/ray-ban/aviator-large-metal-58mm-sunglasses.html?sku=0rb3025-58-112-green-mirror' target='_blank'>Ray-Ban Aviators</a> to accent my new swimsuit. <br />
<br />
Beach towels tend to look cheesy—not so with <a href='http://robertarollerrabbit.com/beach-towel-sardinia.html' target='_blank'>Roberta Freymann’s</a> selection.
  • <b>Kristin Tice Studeman, Senior Online Editor for <a href='http://crfashionbook.com/' target='_blank'>CR Fashion Book</a></b><br />
<br />
I’ll be carrying a <a href='http://www.charlotteolympia.com/shopper.html' target='_blank'>Charlotte Olympia Beach Tote</a>. I love its graphic print and shape. It’s chicer and sleeker than floppy canvas beach bags. In it, I will have the following:<br />
<br />
<a href='http://www.sephora.com/ultimate-sun-protection-cream-broad-spectrum-spf-50-for-face-P173669' target='_blank'>Shiseido Sun Protection Cream SPF 50</a>: The most important thing you could possibly pack in your beach bag is suntan lotion. I wouldn’t leave home without this.<br />
  <br />
<a href='http://www.neimanmarcus.com/p/Tata-Harper-Hydrating-Floral-Essence-125mL/prod148660222/?ecid=NMCIGoogleProductAds&ci_sku=prod148660222sku&ci_gpa=pla' target='_blank'>Tata Harper Hydrating Floral Essence</a>: After you have been in the sun all day, your skin needs a little boost. This facial mist not only smells amazing, but it hydrates and makes me feel rejuvenated.<br />
 <br />
<a href='/index.php/products/view/1473' target='_parent'>Après Beach</a>: The goal: tousled beach hair all the time. This stuff makes it possible.<br />
 <br />
<a href='http://www.sephora.com/sugar-lip-treatment-spf-15-P57002' target='_blank'>Sugar Lip Treatment by Fresh</a>: Chapped lips? No thanks. This is my favorite Sugar product by far. I use it religiously.<br />
  <br />
<a href='http://modaoperandi.com/dezso-sara-beltran/springsummer-2013/accessories-1225/item/tulum-flamingo-sky-small-canvas-pouch-161062' target='_blank'>Dezso by Sara Beltran Tulum Flamingo Sky Pouch</a> to stash my beach beauty essentials.<br />
 <br />
<a href='http://store.shopgiejo.com/' target='_blank'>Giejo Swim Suit</a>: My friend Gabby is the genius behind these adorable suits. She’s thought about every detail—the straps come off for tanning, they are designed to mix and match, etc. They are the best!<br />
 <br />
<a href='http://www.illesteva.com/?s=mademoiselle' target='_blank'>Illesteva Sunglasses</a>: I discovered these years ago at Coachella and haven’t stopped wearing them since. My Illesteva Mademoiselle in tortoise are an old favorite.<br />
 <br />
<a href='http://www.lemlem.com/collections/womens' target='_blank'>Lemlem Cover Ups</a>: They are simple and chic. Just what I want in my beachwear.<br />
<br />
I also plan on packing my iPad mini to catch up on my reading!

<br />
I'm pretty low-key when I head to the beach or the pool and bring just a few things to get me through the day:<br />
<br />
I'm very careful about sun exposure, so I always have a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen. I've been using <a href='http://www.neutrogena.com/category/sun/ultra+sheer.do' target='_blank'>Neutrogena Ultra-Sheer</a> for years on face and body, and I love Aquaphor Balm with SPF 30 for lips. <br />
<br />
I have several <a href='http://robertarollerrabbit.com/apparel/women/kurtas-tops/kurta-with-border-tangiers.html' target='_blank'>Roberta Roller Rabbit Cotton Curtas</a> that I wear throughout the summer, either as a beach cover-up or with shorts or skinny white jeans. <br />
<br />
I just got a cute little <a href='http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/product.asp?sku=18436965&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&device=c&network=g&matchtype=&gclid=CMzwpZbmpbcCFVPNOgodCUUA9A' target='_blank'>HMDX Speaker Case</a> that protects my iPhone while playing music.<br />
<br />
I'm never without my <a href='https://kindle.amazon.com/' target='_blank'>Kindle</a> to keep me company.

<br />
I plan on stocking my bag with:<br />
<br />
My iPhone.<br />
<br />
<a href='http://www.amazon.com/Women-Wolves-Clarissa-Pinkola-Estés/dp/0345409876' target='_blank'><i>Women who Run with the Wolves</i></a> for some summer reading!<br />

  • <b>Cheryl Wischhover, Beauty Editor at <a href='http://fashionista.com/' target='_blank'>Fashionista.com </a></b><br />
<br />
I love my beach bag so much. It's called a <a href='http://www.seabags.com/star-tote.html' target='_blank'>Seabag</a>, and it's made from recycled sails. I'm a total sucker for a star motif. I bought it a few years ago in Charleston, South Carolina, one of my favorite cities. I love that water just wicks right off it, and it's so easy to dump sand out¬—it never sticks inside.  What you'll find in my bag:<br />
<br />
<a href='http://www.sephora.com/uv-plus-hp-day-screen-high-protection-spf-40-P282024' target='_blank'>Clarins UV Plus HP Multi-Protection Day Screen SPF 40</a> for my face. I swear by it.<br />
<br />
<a href='http://www.lorealparisusa.com/en/products/skin-care/suncare/sublime-sun-advanced-sunscreen-oil-spray-spf-50.aspx' target='_blank'>L'Oreal Paris Sublime Sun Advanced Sunscreen Oil Spray SPF 50</a>. <br />
<br />
<a href='http://www.joefresh.com/en/product/eyelet-cover-up' target='_blank'>Joe Fresh Swimsuit Cover Up</a>. It's white eyelet and looks like something Brigitte Bardot would have worn in St. Barths. <br />
<br />
<a href='http://www.sephora.com/truth-to-go-vitamin-c-wipes-P271703?_requestid=89857' target='_blank'>Ole Henriksen Truth To Go Cleansing Wipes</a>. Makeup wipes at the beach are a necessity; you always feel so gritty afterwards and these smell like an orange creamsicle<br />
<br />
Old <a href='http://us.havaianas.com/?gclid=COzVmdjxzbcCFahcMgodSCAAUw' target='_blank'>Havaiana Flip Flops</a>. I have them in four different colors.<br />
<br />
<a href='http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?skuId=2252981&productId=xlsImpprod4690213&navAction=push&navCount=1&categoryId=cat80040?cmpid=PSGO&CAWELAID=1724229295&catargetid=1924703496&cadevice=c&cagpspn=pla' target='_blank'>CoverGirl Clump Crusher Waterproof Mascara</a>. I do not step foot out of the house without mascara, and this includes at the beach. <br />
<br />
Whatever magazines I have laying around. I like to pack a high-low combo like <i>The New Yorker</i> and <i>US Weekly</i>.
  • <b>Tillie Eze, Lifestyle and Fashion Editor of <a href='http://stylecartel.com/‎' target='_blank'>StyleCartel</a></b><br />
<br />
In my bag I plan on having the following:<br />
<br />
<a href='http://www.toms.com/toms-travel-journal/x' target='_blank'>Tom’s Journal</a>: I get the most creative story ideas, solutions or pitches, but have horrible short-term memory. Writing them down allows me to never forget them. Now, if I only I could remember to open it when I get home… <br />
<br />
<a href='http://www.aveeno.com/product/aveeno-+skin+relief+hand+cream+.do' target='_blank'>Aveeno Hand Lotion</a>: I love my hands, so I like to keep them moisturized to prevent dry skin and cracking.<br />
<br />
<a href='http://www.brianjamesfootwear.com/Products/Chantal---Noir__LD0002.aspx' target='_blank'>Brian James Sandals</a>: Heels aren't appropriate for the beach. It’s always smart to carry a pair of these in case the occasion arises.<br />
<br />
<a href='http://www.sephora.com/queen-of-hungary-mist-P309207' target='_blank'>Omorovicza: Queen of Hungary Mist</a>: A spritz calms and refreshes the skin, especially during the summer heat.<br />
<br />
<a href='http://www.jcrew.com/womens_category/ingoodcompany/Panamahat/PRDOVR~23793/23793.jsp' target='_blank'>J. Crew Panama Hat</a>: My hair doesn't dry into luscious beach waves when wet. It takes time and arm power that I just don't have every day. Hats allow me to conceal it so I don't miss out on the festivities. <br />
<br />
<a href='http://www.lunabar.com/products/luna-bar/vanilla-almond' target='_blank'>Luna Bar</a>: A quick healthy snack that perks me up on the go. Vanilla Almond is my fave... yum.<br />
<br />
<a href='http://www.eoproducts.com/Products/EO-Organic-reFresh-Breath-Spray__636874210001.aspx' target='_blank'>EO Organic Refresh Breath Spray</a>: To fix that bad taste in my mouth, or funky breath. Hey... it happens to all of us.<br />
<a href='http://www.bathandbodyworks.com/product/index.jsp?productId=17818636&cp=10965949.4191919' target='_blank'><br />
Bath and Body Works Hand Sanitizer</a>: When I need a quick hand wash, but a bathroom is nowhere in sight. <br />
<br />
<a href='http://www.sephora.com/blotting-linens-P61217' target='_blank'>Boscia Blotting Paper</a>: My oil production goes into overdrive in the summer. These ensure my face doesn't get mistaken for a tub of Crisco.

What's In My Beach Bag

Beach season is finally upon us, which means it’s time to dust off the old raffia tote bag, slip on some sandals and head to the shores. Whether you’re the type to splash around in the waves, listen to tunes while you build a sand castle or get a start on your summer reading list while soaking up the sun, a stylish bag full of beach necessities is never a bad idea. We asked some of our favorite lifestyle editors what they plan on stocking in their beach bags this summer. Here’s what they’ll be toting!
