Guest Post: Katie of Miss Dixie

Hey everyone! I'm Katie and you can find me over at Miss Dixie sharing the latest on my life at the beach, fashions, interiors and food. I can't tell you how thrilled I am to be here today guest posting! A. Liz Adventures has been one of my favorite blogs to read for quite some time now...you know, the type of blog where you see there is a new post and you have to click immediately to read it! April and I have actually been emailing on a thread of a comment I left her weeks ago when we were all giving our input on what haircut she should go with- yep, I knew you remembered. Love her hair by the way. Anyway, we found out we have a little in common- I actually live on the coast of NC where she grew up visiting her grandparents! Small world, right? She had the fantastic idea of this post today, so I hope you enjoy a little peek at some of my essentials for the upcoming beach season! 




+1 Karen Walker Sunnies, I've wanted a pair of these for so long. I think they are absolutely perfect in the tortoise. Hint, hint to my husband if he followed my guest post all the way here ;)

+2 Nothing is better than a white terry cover up you can simply just pull on- no fuss. Make sure to check this one out, the back is ah-dorable. I require a cover up that can go from beach to boat rides to dock to handling the dogs. Something that is cute but most importantly comfortable.

+3 I'll be honest, this is a little fancy for a beach tote, but how cute? Lilly P makes this simple yet glam bag. Other ideas for a beach tote- I use Scout coolers that velcro at the top. Perfect for an easy afternoon, but also keeps your sunscreen, chapstick etc cool inside.

+4 I leave the good stuff at home {at least, I try to remember to} but I'm not ashamed to say I do wear a little jewelry on the beach! These are cost conscious and oh-so-cute.

+5 Neutrogena has the best sunscreen, hands down. I just picked up two of these at Rite Aid {buy one get one half!}, and I know they won't last long. We go through sunscreen like crazy, and this stuff even works on wet skin!

+6  This little glass is a girl's best friend. Go Vino glasses go with us on all of our boat rides- shatterproof and they look amazingly like a real glass. Wine always tastes better out of a glass, right?!

+7 I am hooked on this Loreal EverCreme when I need to deep condition my hair. It smells so good though, I want to do it every single day. I am impressed with this entire line for hair therapy- it works wonders!

+8 I'm going to invest a few dollars into these Tory Burch flip flops this spring. Wear them on a beach day but still pull them off with a maxi dress or white jeans at night!

+9 This True Blue body buff is a favorite of mine to prep for the beach and to clean up from it. I use it a few mornings a week on my legs and arms for smooth skin, and then after a beach day it is the perfect way to wash away the sunscreen and salt!

+10 My newest lip love, Dior Addict Lip Glow, which actually works with your chemistry to create the perfect shade for your lips. Mine is a medium pink and I love it! My Mom and sister both bought it {different complexions} and love it as well.

This post has me all sorts of inspired to get myself truly ready for beach season. I would love to hear what your summer and beach essentials are, stop by anytime at Miss Dixie and say hello!

A big thank you to April for having me today, I am so honored! And since it's almost the weekend, I'll go ahead and say it- have a fabulous rest of your week and an even better weekend ladies! 

xo, Katie
