Things We Love: The Perfect Summer Accessory

Serena & Lily beach towel accessory

 

Living at the beach, we absolutely live for summer. The long, sunny days, nights fishing on the dock with friends, cocktails on the porch (distanced cocktails, of course!) and afternoons by the pool. We try to work a little less, play a little more and make tons of memories to carry us through the cold winter months. 

 

 

We always have a beach bag packed, full and ready at a moment’s notice for impromptu cocktail cruises or island hops–and a stack of fluffy, fun Serena & Lily beach towels to wrap up little wet people and spread on the sand. This yellow and white stripe is our favorite but you can’t go wrong with any of the gorgeous assortment of colors they offer. They are the ultimate, multi-tasking summer accessory!

 

 

(And, obviously, I always have a bag full of my newest, favorite beach reads!) Serena & Lily beach towels are our favorites because they are plush and cushy, but they don’t shed like some fluffy towels. They dry quickly and come out of the washer and dryer as vibrant and fresh as they went in. Summer after summer we return to these fabulous towels.

But towels aren’t the only Serena & Lily beach items we’re loving this summer. These darling gingham chairs and umbrella are made for beach sitting in style!

Can’t choose a favorite color? Get one of each! We can’t think of anything that looks quite this lovely when it’s simply hanging out to try. Dirty laundry? Not here!

 

 

And, when in doubt, you can’t ever go wrong with ocean blue. Any time, any place, in any location, it looks great all summer long. 

What are your favorite summer accessories? Is there a certain beach towel you can’t live without?

Thanks so much for sharing your summer with Design Chic. We love spending the season with you!
