Favorite Things: How to be a Beach Babe

1 // 2 // 3 (top, bottom) // 4 // 5 // 6 

Today's "Thought for Thursday" are all about my Favorite Things - the "How to" be a beach babe edition. 

1. Aviators are a classic.  This "shrunken" version makes the shape a little more wearable.  

2. The Sparkling Grapefruit Izze soda just might be the only thing I drink the rest of the summer.  #delish

3. Every girl should own a perfect black bikini.  This one fits the bill, and it's 30% off with code "HISUMMER"

4. There is something so chic about a wrap bracelet at the beach.  This one pops just enough without feeling contrived.

5. Want a sandal that can go from the beach to dinner and back again?  Grab this pair!

6. I love a good bargain on a beach bag.  This one is roomy, chic, and won't break the bank.

And as an added bonus: 
The perfect dress to show off your beach-y glow this summer.
A striped cover up that's adorable and functional. (And on sale!)
This multi-tasker can be used a towel, sarong, or top.
And just in case you can't make it to the beach today, spritz this and be transported.

I'm linking up with Annie and Natalie today for Thoughts for Thursday again today.
