Beach Essentials with Naja

It's finally summer which means spending as much time outside as possible, or at least trying. And what better place to spend those glorious sunny days than at the pool or beach? We all know a great swimsuit just the first step in getting chic for the beach. So I teamed up with Naja to show you what essentials always join me on a trip to the beach.

Every beach look is centered around the suit and mine is no different, Naja's Faye racerback one-piece swimsuit , a suit made of recycled plastic bottles, served as the inspiration for this years essentials . The suit looks very Mod with it's clean lines and waist cinching belt but also has a bit of a sporty flair with it's sexy racerback. I decided to go with a Mod yet nautical (modical?) theme for this list, playing off the style and colors of the swimsuit. I always like to have options so I also added the Valentina Bustier and matching Carmen Hi-Waisted Blue panties to stuff into my beach bag as a sexy alternative to struggling with a one piece all night. Both the Bustier and panties are also made with fabric made from recycled plastic bottles, how cool is that? Anyway here are my Naja inspired Modical beach essentials:

1. Donut Pool Float / 2. Wide-Brimmed Straw Hat / 3. Naja Faye Racerback One-Piece Navy /
4. River Island Kelly Metal Insert Sunglasses / 5. Valentina Bustier / 6. Carmen High Waisted Blue  /
7. Coppertone Sport Sunscreen / 8. Quite the Catch Bag / 9. Teal Anchor on Blue Stripes Beach Towel  / 10. Portable Beverage Bottle Define Bottle  / 11. Gait Minds Think Alike Sandal In White

Naja is a lingerie and swimwear company that creates quality items with great details, lovely patterns, cheeky prints and recycled materials.  If that isn't cool enough a portion of every sale goes to Naja's underwear for Hope program, a program that partners with the Golondrinas Foundation in Colombia which trains single or head of household mothers to sew.  There are tons of cute items and if you're on the smaller side (bras only go up to about 36DD and some panties go up to an XL or 12/14), you should definitely check them out.
