Toes in the Sand - what's in our beach bag
Summer – good to see you! We’ve rounded up our favorite pieces to get you ready for beach season.
WEAR - IRVING DRESS
Our Irving dress does double duty - all the ease of a caftan, with enough look (and coverage) to go straight from the beach to dinner.
Throw it on and get out there, you’ve been waiting long enough for some vitamin D.
BAG - KAYU
Made by hand in the Philippines from low impact materials by local artisans, Kayu’s beach bags have just the right amount of whimsy. We love the Piñata bag !
WATER BOTTLE - SWELL
The most stylish replacement for plastic bottles on the market. BPA free, and insanely hard working – this bottle keeps water cold for an entire day at the beach - don’t know how they do it but it just works.
SWIMSUIT - SUMMERSALT
Sometimes the best things are right under your nose – on a visit to our factory we saw these great colorful one piece swimsuits on the machine. Turned out to be Summersalt swim – not only do they manufacture in the same NYC factory as SVILU, they are serious about sustainably and use recycled materials for all their suits. Plus, they have a “butt guide” to help you choose the cut that’s best for you.
SUNGLASSES - DICK MOBY
Not only does this Amsterdam based brand make the cutest sunglasses, they do it right – frames are made from recycled acetate, cases from recycled leather & wipe clothes from recycled plastic bottles. We’re particularly fond of these unexpected blue & brown “tortoise” shades.
TOWEL - COYUCHI
We’re never going back to traditional beach towels again. These flat weave organic cotton beach towels are lightweight, don’t take up too much space in your bag, and best of all sand doesn’t stick to them. Plus, they make for a pretty decent sarong in a pinch when you want a little coverage while you collect seashells.
SHOES - NISOLO
We’ve always wanted Huaraches and these by Nisolo are divine. Handmade in Nisolo’s own factory in Peru where they ensure living wages, and health care for all workers, these sandals are made from soft leather in a flattering neutral color, so you can wear them everywhere.
SUNSCREEN - COOLA
If you loathe the greasy sunscreens as we do you will love Coola. PABA Free, Reef friendly and made with 70% organic ingredients – this sunscreen also feels amazing going on, absorbs without any sticky, nasty feeling, and the green tea scent smells great.
