Do you wish summer would last forever? So do we. But there are some simple ways to keep summer alive even when the winter chills sink in! Keep your home subtropic instead of subarctic by adding some bold botanicals to the mix! We’re talking about palm fronds, people. They may not do well in cold weather, but as far as trends go, they’re evergreen!

Sunglasses

Hat – When it comes to hats, we prefer the floppy, straw variety. But as long as it’s keeping your head cool and face shaded, any hat will do.

White Cover-upCoverup – We love a loose and airy coverup for the beach. Its easy to slip off when you want some sun, and slip on when the wind picks up.

Beach SandalsShoes – Don’t assume you won’t need shoes. Bring easy slip-on sandals because when the sun goes up that sand gets skin singeing hot!

Straw Beach ToteTote – You don’t want to go to the beach with your hands full of knick-knacks! Keep your hands free, and your shoulder stylin’ with a fun beach tote!
