When I was in high school, having fun at the shore meant being in a boardwalk fashion show. It was less about swimming and more about flexing on each other with our new-bought kicks and Z. Cavariccies. Then we grew up, got jobs, and our day at the beach looks very different. Now, we need to relax so comfort is king, these 5 must-haves will keep you comfy while still bringing that salty swag:

For The Love Of All Things Jersey...Ditch The Sneakers & Find the Flops

I get it. The workweek meant cramming your toes into triangles on stilts all...day...long. Once your feet hurt, the fun is OVER. I know sneakers can feel great and even have that weekend vibe, but they're NOT for the beach. Every time I see someone dealing with sand in their Saucony, I think, “what are you trying to prove Benny?” Instead, impulse-buy those cheetah print flip flops you saw at the WaWa checkout and properly free your feet!

Buy Magic Shorts

Magic does exist and unlike a magician, I'll tell you how my trick works. Magic shorts are those super-cute distressed denim cut-offs but they have lots of Lycra stretch material woven into them. They’re key because they won’t cling to your wet, sandy body or booty. Instead, they’re so forgiving that they pull up right over your hips without even unbuttoning them! I mean, no one needs to see us on the struggle bus wrestling to pull up our jean shorts in public. You're welcome.

This is how you know I love you. If you’ve spent hours in saltwater with aggressive waves showing you who’s boss, then you know when you dry off, your hair is one giant knot. Even if your hair is not long enough to get tangled, the sun and salt are drying it out like your Mom's meatloaf. Spray a quality leave-in conditioner with SPF built-in like Moroccan Oil Protect & Prevent Spray to save your color, add much-needed moisture, and detangle that tumbleweed. Now you're ready for that intentional messy top bun.

If you’re like me you're on the beach from dawn till dusk so you need to plan for the long haul. Every dermatologist on the planet will tell you to take a break from the sun and with this 50 SPF umbrella, you can do just that without forking over that perfect beach spot! The problem with umbrellas is that absolutely no one wants to lug them onto the beach. Well, the Versa-Brella Sport is so compact it actually folds up right into your beach bag, no extra lugging required.

Sunscreen for your body is not formulated for your face. You do need a special formula for the face and this one not only protects your delicate skin from future damage, but it also helps reverse the damage that has already been done. If I could only get a bottle of this for other aspects of my life!

Get out there and have some summer fun...we've earned this one divas!
