Let’s face it, friends, we love our sweet beaus, but sometimes you need a few days with your best gal pals on a gorgeous beach with a (monogrammed) koozie in your hand, and your toes in the white sand! Can’t you just imagine how much fun that would be? Well, in today’s edition of our Summer in the South series, we’re going on a beach getaway! Grab your girls and your Jack Rogers and let’s get road trippin’, y’all!
A. In this hot Southern sun, a girl has to keep her skin protected. Don’t forget to lather on the Coppertone!
B. Feeling a bit pale? A little St. Tropez on your legs before you go will keep you looking sun-kissed without the risk.
C. Whether it’s inviting your girls on the trip or sending out a sweet thank you after, I’m dying over these adorable bikini notecards from Design Darling! Don’t they make you want to put on some Barbie pink lipstick?
D. To me, the summer means seersucker! This Marley Lilly monogrammed cosmetic bag is the perfect summer size bag! Toss a bit of cash, some lipgloss and your ID and stash in your beach bag!
E. Add a little nautical flair to any outfit with these Swell Caroline anchor earrings! Now, all you need is a striped tee and some red shorts!
F. Whether they’re for a rainy day game of war or a girls night game of hearts, I cannot think of a Southern girl who doesn’t need a set of personalized playing cards!
G. Giant bow, bandeau bikini top, and SEC colors available. Enough said – adorable!
H. This J. McLaughlin duffle is the perfect weekender bag for the rough-on-luggage girl (like myself)! It’s actually made of durable sail material!
I. Nicole and I are both crushing on this C. Wonder Girlfriend shirt! We’re pretty sure it’s the ultimate gingham shirt for the summer!
J. Follow Kate’s lead, and dive in! One can’t go wrong with this super fun Kate Spade beach towel!
K. My friend, Emily Ley, and I have kind of a koozie obsession, and these monogrammed ones are right up our alley!
