One Saturday night in February, I declared to friends over margaritas that this was the year we absolutely NEEDED to go to a beach together. Since that fateful, tipsy day, I’ve been obsessively planning and dreaming of our summer getaway.

Seven of us piled into a van and drove 11 hours down south to Gulf Shores, Alabama last weekend. We stayed at an adorable house with our own private beach. We were down in the water every morning before 10am. Dolphins were seen, crabs were chased, seafood was consumed, beers were sipped, sunburns were had, and day naps were savored. It was perfect.

I had months to channel my beach dreams into retail therapy, so I wanted to put together a little collection of all the goodies I rocked on the beach. I wasn’t ready to return to the real world where I’m expected to wear more than my swimsuit and eat more than ice cream and hot dogs. Alas, here I am.
