Sure summer officially started on June 20, but it doesn't really feel like it's started until the Fourth of July. The day after our celebration of independence Mr. Misadventures and I are heading to the beach. The Oregon Coast is not quite the same as the beach in say Southern California, Hawaii, or the Caribbean, but it still got me in a beachy kind of mood.
To further inspire me, and hopefully you as well, I've put together some of my latest internet finds which will be perfect for maximizing your summer experience.

I am completely in love with this round beach blanket from Aurobelle! I think it is such a unique shape for a blanket, and of course, I love the red. It just feels like it belongs on a beach. Or maybe a grassy knoll picnic.
If you are on the beach, you need beach shoes. I've been looking at these Fleeps. I am not a huge fan of straps between my toes, that's been my only hesitation, but I like that you can design your own and I am always a big fan of supporting companies that give back. 10% of every purchase goes to non-profits that support underprivileged girls.
If you have an active lifestyle or are going to spend a lot of time at the beach, I think these QALO rings are a good alternative to losing or damaging your engagement and/or wedding rings. I know of two people who lost their rings on the beach, I bet they would have appreciated one of these! Although I am a big fan of red, I'm kind of partial to the navy and white striped one.
I've seen pro athletes using it as well as pregnant women whose rings don't fit anymore, kind of cool.
REI Flex Lite Chair
We recently picked this chair up for me. Mr. Misadventures has a different chair that he uses for photography, sometimes waiting for the sun to rise or set can take time. I was using the hubby's but it was not comfortable, although he loves his. I got this folding one from REI. It is super light to carry, it breaks down into a really compact size and it is way comfortable.
It's perfect for the beach or anywhere!
Sand Cloud Towels
What's the beach without a towel? This lightweight gorgeous Turkish cotton towel has really cool pockets for hiding your keys, phone, etc. 10% of your purchase goes to preserve and protect beaches, oceans, and marine life.
Santorini Beach Tent
This beach tent is on the pricey side but it is pretty awesome. Small enough to be portable, big enough to give you the coverage you need at the beach. Plus the material is made of is UPF 40 blocking 97.5% UV!
The Atlantic Ocean
How can you go to the beach without a great beach tote? I really like this one from The Atlantic Ocean because of the natural materials and nautical theme. I think it's big enough to fit everything I've shown above plus room for my must-haves: water or coconut water, sunscreen, and Sahale Snacks. I am not a big fan of picnicking on the beach but I do need my snacks and I must stay lathered up and hydrated!
Well now, I think we are all ready for the beach!
How about you, have you seen anything that you think would be great for the beach?
