The Perfect Beach Day by Erin

Dear readers!
You are in for a treat. The lovely Erin is going to guest post today – yes, we hit it right off :) – and I am over the moon that she decided to share her beach essentials with us (love that hat!). 
So she actually set the theme for this week where I am going to share my favorites to survive the heat. I live in Vienna but check the news guys: I do live in the hottest spot of Europe right now, due to the Sahara breeze which decided to cross my homebase (for whatever reason).
So stay tuned and for now I leave you with my girl Erin. Enjoy!

Hello!  My name is Erin, and I write the blog Popcorn, Pugs & Peonies.  I am thrilled to be doing a guest post for Martie today.  I live in Northern California, and relish any time I can spend at the beach.  Unfortunately, the climate here doesn’t always cooperate by delivering actual summer weather, so I try to take advantage of warm weekends when we have them.   
When I started to put together a post about my perfect beach day essentials, I fell in love with a bright palette based on primary colors.  It is worth mentioning that everything here is from Target, so the price is right for any budget.  I love the idea of lying in a hammock with a frozen cocktail in my hand, while watching the tide roll in.  I think a juicy read is essential (I recently started reading the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy and can’t put it down), and I wouldn’t complain if there was some grilling going on.  All that sun makes me famished.  Lastly, I never forget to protect myself from the sun with sunblock and a nice big hat.  The older I get, the more I notice damage that the sun has already done, and I am determined to prevent any more.  
Perfect Day at the Beach

Here you have my perfect beach day.  What are your essentials?  Any favorite pieces here?  Do you have any recommendations for a good beach read?  
Thanks again Martie, for having me!
