In order or be ready for summer, there are a few must-haves…

To keep our moneymakers out of the sun and stave off the wrinkles, a hat is always a good idea…

We adore this chic sun hat…get it here.
 And this one could come in handy all year round…just sayin’ …

And whether we like it or not…swimsuits are a must!!!

This colorful number is available right here.

If prints aren’t your thing, we love this bright pink bandeau and scoop bottom by Ella Moss


Of course if y’all are more on the modest side, a one-piece might be more to your liking.  We think this white one looks resort-ready. Available here: 


And we love this Ode to Pucci maillot.


For those of you who are …shall we say, more well endowed…how about this halter top bathing beauty??  And it’s reversible!! Thank you Shopbop.



Strolling to and fro and trotting up to the tiki hut may require a cute Cover up. from Bloomingdales:

Of course, a kaftan is another great option.

Also from Bloomingdales .

And we do love a jumpsuit …especially after along day in the sun or the air conditioning that tends to feel like the frozen tundra.  Another score from Bloomingdales.

We can’t possibly head poolside or to the beach without  a bag full of sunscreen…here are a couple of totes that we are totally giddy abou!!

Love the pom poms on this one

:  Can’t y’all see carrying it to the farmers market on non-beachy days???

Of course, we couldn’t resist this one either…just makes us do a happy dance!  

And after cooling off in the water, y’all are going to need a little something to help dry you off.  We are very partial to a Turkish towel.  It’s soft, absorbent and takes up no room….and it gets bonus points for acting in the role of a sarong in a pinch! 

We thought this was a fun color but they come in a wide variety…so pick your favorite hue of the moment!!

So belles, grab that sunscreen and your favorite sunglasses. Hope to see y’all poolside!!
