Is it summer yet?! Well, although summer may still be a few short weeks away, there’s no reason it can’t be poolside and beach babe season. The sun is shining and the soft sand is calling your name, so it’s time to fill your beach bag with glossy fashion magazines, no-thought-required beach reads, plenty of sunscreen, and hit the swim scene in major summer style. 

So, what’s in your summer splash style arsenal? Big floppy hat to shield those pesky UV rays? Check. Chic floral cover-up to boost your confidence and camouflage your muffin top? Don’t leave home without it. A retro floral print bikini to soak up the sunshine? A must have this season. And last but not least, a fun floral beach bag to haul all your essentials? Check!

Every beach babe needs a big floppy hat in their summer style essentials wardrobe. And this summer is no exception. Head on over to affordable retailer Old Navy and stock up on swim essentials, including a fabulous hat to protect your tresses and shield your eyes from the sun’s rays. 

Easy, breezy, and effortless cool, throw this cover-up on, on your way to the pool. Super comfy, and chic, this cover up is modest enough to wear to a beachside café for an early summer dinner al fresco. 

This retro glam swimsuit is the perfect hybrid of a modest one-piece swimsuit and a flirty retro two-piece suit. Flaunt a bit of skin without revealing too much in this Betty Boop meets sailor inspired suit. Oh, and did we mention it’s from super fashion forward affordable clothier H&M? Nothing to lose!

What’s a beach babe to do without a ginourmous oh-so-glamorous beach bag to tote all her sunning essentials? Go big, or go home, right? And while you’re at it, go floral too. What’s not to love about this vibrant floral print, watercolor print inspired beach tote? Looks like this is a must have for sunning in style!

Besides some great sunblock, what's your beach must have?
