Beach Babes: 16 Parlour Beach Holiday Essentials

Here in the ‘States, yesterday’s Independence Day Holiday fell in the middle of the week which for some (ok, namely me) meant that today and Friday became two extra days off. And what do we do when we have days off—we get the hell out of here.

Figuring out where to go was easy, Grand Cayman. This British territory is the perfect example of casual-luxe—but what to bring for a beach holiday was tricky. While making my packing list, I put together a short list of my beach-holiday must-haves, along with a few extras that will take you and your travel gadgets from the flight, to the hotel room, to the beach, and then to dinner in perfect easy holiday style. Check out the good from Lem Lem, Kiehls, Elizabeth and James, Edith Miller and more:
