this summer, me and my boyfriend, along with my two of our best friend couples got a beach house out in greenport, on the north fork of long island. we spend every weekend out there, and it's pretty much our city-folk way of playing house in the country. we lay in the sun and build castaway tents on the beach; go to the market, make dinners in our 'real' kitchen and drink way too many wine spritzers (it IS long island); knit, read and obsessively put puzzles together; wake up really early and find treasures at yard and tag sales.
all of this beach time has made me prepare accordingly. bright beach towels, ultimate blocking sunscreen, big floppy hats, the perfect beach/market tote, gauzy summer dresses, beach blankets for castaway tents.
here are a few of my favorite beach finds for the summer.
