1. Sunglasses: A good pair of sunglasses is without a doubt the most important summer accessory. These Karen Walker sunglasses are to-die for.
2. Good magazines
3. Sunscreen: I am not one to usually wear sunscreen, yes I know how terrible that is for me, but in Charleston I got the worst sunburn in the world and was peeling for weeks. So for the rest of the season I plan to lather it on
4. A hat: when your face just cannot take anymore more sun a hat is the answer. This Harding Lane one is too cute for words.
5. Kindle Paperwhite: I've professed my love for my kindle dozens of times, but am less than thrilled with it when I can't read my books in the sun! I'm planning on investing in the paperwhite so I won't have to buy my books twice
7. Evian Spray
What necessities can you not live without?
