Take a peek at the cutest beach towel around 😍 Our round beach towel is the perfect summer accessory. This towel is so soft and big enough to fit multiple people! Great for the pool or the beach and it comes in four fun prints!

Time in the sun calls for rash guards! Our kids long sleeve rash guards come in a variety of colors as well as a short sleeve option. These rash guards start at sizes 0-3 months and go all the way up to 12-14, perfect for all ages and genders. The full length zipper makes makes changing out of a wet rash guard a breeze.

 One of out top summer staples is a good sun hat. Your ears and neck are easily susceptible to sun exposure. Our ears have thin, delicate skin that is very easily damaged by the sun. One of the easiest ways to protect your face, neck and ears is with a wide brimmed hat. We have sun hats for adults, infants and children. Our best-selling sun hats feature an adjustable chin strap for the perfect fitting hat that stays all day. These hats are also made with the best UPF 50+ material. Snag a couple to keep in your beach bag or car for summer days on the go!

Is it even summer if you don't have a beach bag packed with all of the summer essentials?! There are so many great bags out there but we have a soft spot for these beautiful Sea & Grass bags. Having a bag stashed in the car or by the front door makes it east to grab and go. Keep it filled with snacks, sunscreen, snacks, sun hats, and any other items perfect for a summer outing. 


For the ultimate sun-safe day, be sure to wear sunscreen along with your hat and rash guards. When it comes to sunscreen, make sure to pick a brand that is free from oxybenzone, octinoxate, and homosalate which are toxic to humans, coral reefs, and are also hormone disruptors. A few of our favorite sunscreen brands are Tubby Todd, Black Girl Sunscreen, and Cotz. 

When it comes to summer, being prepared makes for a better time! No one likes to be sunburned or unprepared on a summer day. Have any other favorite summer staples? Let us know!
