It’s not even summer yet and I can’t stop dreaming of the beach! It is finally warming up a little in Utah…but once I say that, im sure it will snow or something! That means it is a perfectly good time to dream about my essentials beach list!






My most important essential…sunblock. My dad even renamed my middle name, Samantha Karoline Red Hair Fair Skin Sunblock, Dammit Knaphus…so I would remember my sunscreen and not pretend I could tan. (Thanks Dad!)


Anthropologie swimsuit.




The heartbreaker swimsuit.




cover up


A fun coverup like this pom-pom tunic!




Can’t carry all your stuff without a good looking tote!



Havaianas are so incredibly comfortable, they are a perfect summer addition!



I always like to have an inexpensive pair of sunglasses that I can take to the pool or beach so that I don’t break or lose my favorite pair of expensive ones!


beach babe


I love the way this product smells, and the texture it adds without needing to really do anything with my hair! Not Your Mothers Beach Babe is a summer hair saver!




A pretty hat to protect your face from that harsh sun!


beach towel

What beach trip would be complete without this striped beach towel?!

Of course you need some good jams, good food, good friends, and a good book to make the beach getaway complete! Where have you been day dreaming about?! Have any beach essentials to add that I maybe forgot about? Maybe we should plan a nice little beach vacation? I feel good about it!
