I'm off to Mexico for a work trip, so it's time to think about all the beach essentials I need and want. Obviously, I need to start with the most important thing: the perfect swimsuit. I love the simple sleekness of this Shoshanna one-piece. It's sophisticated...
Seea is my go-to for adorable rash guards. They are so cute, I feel like I should wear them with jeans out on the town!
A good trucker hat is a must to keep your face out of the sun, especially in a place as hot as Mexico. Quiksilver men's makes the best options. Sometimes, you just have to shop in the boys' section!
Tropical prints are so in right now, and these Tallow shorts from Planet Blue are a great way to wear the trend. They're adorable, versatile and flattering.
This Gap shirtdress can double as both a cover-up and an everyday piece. Adding a wedge and a necklace takes this simple staple from the beach to dinner in no time.
Of course, the perfect beach bag is a must. I love Billabong's options because they work for the beach but are also stylish and statement-making for once your vacation (or, in my case, work trip) is over.
