SwankFinds: Beach "Bum" Essentials

Now that summer's in full-swing, we've been finding ourselves frequenting the beach over the past couple weeks.  Seeing all the beautiful, young people soaking up the Vancouver sunshine inspired me to put together my dream beach essentials in this week's SwankFinds feature:




  1. Aqua De Coco Moma Bandeau Two-Piece {$135}:  We're loving the bold colour combination of this two-piece bandeau bikini.  If it looks as good on as it does in the picture, this mama might have to splurge.  Plus, you don't have to worry about those pesky bikini strap lines!  Available online at Plush Swimwear.
  2. Tom Ford Nico Sunglasses {$445}:  It's Tom Ford!  We love big sunglasses and we also love experimenting with different shapes {and we could gush about Tom Ford all day long!}.  The Nico sunglasses have a unique shape perfect for the beach or days spent on the boat.  Available at Neiman Marcus.
  3. Tory Burch Dawson Tote {$277}:  The shape and colour of this beach tote would be a perfect for a Hamptons getaway!  Available at Shopbop.
  4. Michael Kors Stephy Sandals {$150}:  Love the neutral colours and versatility of this sandal.  It's practical for the beach and can easily transition with your lunch or dinner date outfits.  Available at 6pm.com {$89.99 on sale}.
  5. Missoni Home Hugo Beach Towel {$230}:  How swank is this beach towel?!  With the classic Missoni chevron pattern and bright, resort-like colours, you'll be easy to spot on a beach filled with sunbathers.  Available at Stardust Modern.
  6. Kobo Aura HD {$169.99}:  This e-reader is the perfect beach companion when you want to get away from the everyday and soak up your latest juicy reads.  Available online at kobo.com.
  7. Loreal Telescopic Precision Liquid Liner {$9.99}:  We love this liquid eye liner and find that even after a long day at the beach, the liner stays in place and there are no under-eye smuges to be seen.  Available online at Ulta Beauty.
  8. Mala Collective Surfer Mala Necklace and Bracelet {$138 and $39, respectively}:  Mala beads are traditionally used in prayer and meditation, and promotes a calmer mind, body and spirit.  We were recently gifted an Om bracelet at an event so we decided to check out what Mala Collective had to offer and instantly fell in love with the Surfer Mala necklace and bracelet.  When we found out the name, Surfer, we thought it would be a perfect addition to our beach essentials!  Available at Mala Collective.
  9. Nars Lip Gloss in Striptease {$25}:  This sheer nude gloss from Nars will take your beach ensemble to another level.  Available online at Nars Cosmetics.
  10. Agua De Coco White Amacao Cover-Up {$194.99}:  To say that we are slightly obsessed with this swimwear brand is an understatement; we love everything about Agua De Coco!  We love how this sheer white cover-up pairs perfectly with any bikini or one-piece swimsuit.  Available at online at Rio  Swim Shop.

We hope you enjoy the sunshine and beach weather this weekend - wherever you are!
