I just bought some beach towels and a beach bag, which reminded me that we’ve never rounded up modern beach essentials. Here are some of the things I’d like to tote to the beach with me this summer:

Clockwise from top left: Folding chair by Gallant & Jones, Takenaka Bento Box, Vista Outdoor Blanket, Beach Umbrella, KOR Vida water bottle, Marimekko Opaali Bag, Pic-Nic Beach Towels by Paola Navone for Crate & Barrel, and, you can’t forget a good book! In my case, I’m reading #GIRLBOSS by the pool this weekend… what are you reading?
