Beach Basics

By the Beach 2

Blue Tummy Control Swimsuit // M&S (Similar), Prescription Rayban Sunglasses // Specs, Brighton
Navy Sandals // Saltwater via Toast, Lumix LF1 Camera // Panasonic
Factor 50 Suncream // La Roche Posay, Saltwater Spray // Kevin Murphy

My beach bag is fairly minimal. I spent literally FOREVER looking for a retro bikini that didn’t make me look like a whale, and failed miserably – so I went back to the old classic of M&S and found this really reasonable, shaping swimsuit which I’m so pleased I brought. If I had the need, there was also a really great blue and white striped one which I highly recommend (and it’s on sale!)

I’ve been living in the Saltwater sandals this year and went for the navy ones, although next year (they sell out so quickly) I think I’m going to get a brighter colour like red. You can wear them in the sea, and if they don’t fit quite right when you get them, you’re supposed to wear them in water and let them mould to your feet as they dry. Clever things, eh.

I got the resort spray by Kevin Murphy when I got my hair cut, and it’s the perfect finishing spray if you’re looking for Alexa Chung hair. It smells great, isn’t sticky and works a treat. Can’t go wrong – especially if you don’t pay £20 for it ;)

Finally, my new camera. This little thing is super smart, tiny and takes a great picture.

What’s in your beach bag this summer?
