beach bag- fetch bites


It’s time to pack your bags for the beach!   Here are a few of our favorite picks for checking everything off of your list and making it look effortless…



First you need the perfect beach bag. We’re partial to the handwoven St. Tropez Tote for its beautiful craftsmanship and detail.



We recommend A.Barclay’s scarves for every vacation! They pack down to nothing and are elegant enough to wear as a shawl to a cocktail party, and easy enough to wear as a beach wrap.


Next you’ll need lip balm and sunscreen. This Jao Lip Balm is “specially formulated for lip balm snobs”. Need we say more? We’re also smitten with the Skin Ceuticals Sport UV Defense Sunscreen. It’s perfect for a busy day on the beach.


Turkish towels are ideal for beach vacations. They aren’t bulky when wrapped around your waist and are lightweight and quick to dry!


Not much of a sun goddess? Then Parasol’s beautiful embroidered tunic is the perfect solution.  This lightweight linen dress offers you full upper body coverage with UPF 50+ in beautiful, effortless style.

main_item_glamourpuss-nyc-on-taigan-glamourpuss-tahiti-tassel-turquoise-longGlamourpuss NY’s Tahiti Tassel necklaces are great for when you find your self transitioning from beach time into cocktail hour.


Keep the sun out of your eyes, and off of your face with this Lighthouse Cap from Harding Lane. We love the pretty sea foam green with a needlepoint stitched lighthouse.
