By now, we've learned the most important product for any beach trip is sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen. Hopefully you've become a pro at reapplying throughout the day, but your SPF 50 isn't always enough. Why not bulk up your sun protection with a little extra coverage in the form of a portable beach umbrella?We're happy to report that if dreamy Gray Malin photos and private beach resorts are your vibe, there's no shortage of retro-inspired umbrellas to choose from: think tassels, thatched roofs
With temperatures already inching up across the country, this summer is looking to be a hot one. While you could plan on holing up inside with the AC blasting, that’s not very practical — or fun. Think of all the backyard parties and outdoor activities you’ll miss out on! Luckily, Amazon has just the thing […]

While everyone else has their heads in the seasonal clouds of lake-front Airbnb rentals, flowy house dresses, and the best new swimsuits, we’re grounding our attention on one of summer 2021’s unsung staples: the beach towel. A workhorse accessory that goes beyond the beach to park picnics and backyard sunbathing, these larger-than-your-average-shower towels are everything from durable to comfortable and cute. We went ahead and curated a collection of the best and brightest beach towels of the se
