Sally no longer sells seashells by the seashore.
But don’t feel sorry for Sally. She’s been dying to get out of the seashell business for years. Taxes, handling fees and import/export duties just made the business too stressful. So, she sold her company to a foreign conglomerate, got enough money for her retirement AND went on a seaside shopping spree.
Who could blame her?
After eyeing so many seaside accessories for years, she could finally indulge on some of those fun and flirty styles that caught her eye. Trust me; you’re going to find them irresistible, too!
Vera Bradley is known for their colorful and practical totes and bags. And this Beach Tote is the perfect accessory to carry while stepping along the sand. There’s plenty of space to store your towel, sunglasses and flip-flops. And not one to leave you high and dry, Vera Bradley included a zippered pouch with a plastic liner for your tanning lotion, in case of leaks. The flat bottom will make it easy to set in the sand while you collect your own seashells and the flat handles enable you to toss it over your shoulder and walk the shoreline in style.
When I’m looking for a specific piece of jewelry to finish an outfit, my mind repeatedly turns to Kendra Scott. Not only does she have a broad range of fun and classy pieces, but it’s also priced to fit a modest budget! Take this delicate Candice Bracelet for example. It comes in four different neutral metals. It’s adjustable, too, and would look perfect with a sundress while sipping on a mojito with a tiny umbrella. It would also elevate your swimsuit while you’re catching some rays. Be sure to put it in your Beach Tote if you decide to brave the water!
Sally was savvy selling seashells. It turns out she’s just as savvy when it comes to buying sunglasses! Since UV protection is necessary, these '60s-inspired Ray-Bans are the perfect accessory for Sally and you. The adjustable nose pads and curved nose bar are designed to fit your face with comfort and style. And you can put them in the protective case that comes included, so you don’t need to worry about the sand or tote causing those pesky, fine line scratches
No accessory shopping spree would be complete without some flip-flops for the beach. These aren’t just any flip-flops, however; they are You Metallic Flip Flops from Havaianas! These are a great go-to sandal when walking the pier or cozying up to a beach bonfire as the sun plunges behind the water. They have a synthetic upper that features a metallic finish with the embossed Havaianas logo. The cushioned footbed offers just enough support to keep you from sinking in the sand, and the metallic color highlights that gorgeous coral pedicure.
Now that your seaside senses have been stimulated, get off your seahorse and start buying those can’t-live-without accessories!
