“Let’s go to the beach, each/ Let’s go get a wave/ They say, what they gonna say?”
We still can’t get that dang Nicki Minaj song out of our heads from two summers ago.
And now that we mention it, we’re still singing that line from Jonathan Richman’s “The Beach,” “Where it’s not what you have on, but what you have not.” Right? And that was like, almost 30 years ago…. Sigh.
Anyway while we’re humming and reminiscing, let’s go shopping: Here’s a sampling of our latest gathering of goods on GREAT.LY. Beach-inspired and beach-ready. Suit up.
Love + Salt is a vegan, volume-enhancing mist that gives hair sultry beach waves. You can spray it all over your body for beautifully hydrated skin thanks to “good” hydrating salts like Himalayan Pink Salt.
We dig this psychedelic, high-waisted bikini, with its totally on-trend tropical-jungle print. U.S. sizes 4-12.
We like this story from Adelia: “These pendant necklaces were constructed from the claws of a long dead turtle that spent the first half of its afterlife as a teaching instrument at a local school. The claws are beautiful and strong, with natural color variations that give them an almost ombré appearance. They’ve been securely set inside modified brass bullet shell casings and strung onto a 14kt gold-filled chain.”
An 8 x 10 photographic print of original mixed-media work, with lovely typography and a sea-themed Ralph Waldo Emerson quote.
The perfect tote for the beach or a farmer’s market haul. Made with antique gold ink (non-toxic water-based) on naturally recycled cotton.
This breezy boho dress is made of lightweight cotton and doubles as beach cover-up. A must-have summer staple.
