Wishlist: Beach Days

With the British summer having now arrived, a mere two months behind schedule, all I want to do is sit in the sun. Preferably on the beach, so that I have the option of running into the sea at regular intervals to cool off. I'm lucky enough to live pretty close to the seaside and it's one of my stepkids' favourite places to go, so hopefully we'll get to spend a few days there while the sunshine holds out. I've put together a little wishlist today of beach-perfect items.
Beach Days Wishlist
1. Blue Teal Tote Bag, £38
2. Lightweight Nautical Stripe Dress, £28 £20
3. OPI Suzi's Hungary Again, £11.50
4. Double Finger Anchor Ring, £8
5. Little Marcel Flip Flops, £22.50 £15.80
6. Crochet Bikini Top, £14 and Bottoms, £12
7. Heartthrob Sunglasses, £15

The stripey dress is perfect for daytime and, being nautical-themed, is just the thing for a day eating ice-cream at the seaside. The anchor ring is also an obvious choice and would look fab with the dress. Flip-flops are a must for me on the beach, to avoid burning your feet on hot sand or cutting yourself on sharp stones. I love the colour of this crochet bikini and find that halter-neck styles are the most flattering for me. I love novelty-sunglasses and this floral pair are just gorgeous. Bright nails are a summer staple and this shade from OPI's Euro Centrale collection would match the stripes of the dress perfectly. Finally, a roomy bag is essential for holding your towel, suncream and a bottle of water to keep you hydrated!
You may have noticed I've featured a couple of items from Sugar + Style, and Nhuc has been kind enough to offer a discount code for readers; you can use the code 'justjess20' at checkout to get 20% off your order! This code is only valid until the end of July, so make the most of it.
Which is your favourite item from my wishlist? What are your must-have beach day essentials? Will you be heading to the beach this summer?
