My beach essentials: the co-founder of Left on Friday

Illesteva Lisbon Sunglasses + Fora Black & White Cord

At the beach, you must have good sunglasses that you love. I have the navy ones, and I actually got the strap when I was in Lisbon.


Left on Friday Sweet Victory Top + Left on Friday Hi Hi Bottom

I'm currently obsessed with these two pieces in the Sweet Chili Heat, Aperol, and Hot colors. I wear them to Pilates and under my slip dress almost every day.


Las Bayadas Beach Blanket

I was gifted this recycled cotton blanket, which is made in Sayulita, Mexico. The profits go towards sending kids to school. It’s perfectly oversized, fun, and portable.


Sun Bum Original Sunscreen Face Lotion - SPF50

I’m into this sunscreen since it’s waterproof, reef-safe, and free of oxybenzone, octinoxate, and PABA. It also feels light on your skin.


Aritzia silk dresses

Going to the beach is just part of the day, not the day, whether I'm in Hawaii, Italy, or at my home beach in Venice, California. I might go from shopping to beach to dinner, so I need a go-to dress I can wear over my suit. This one, the Christine, is comfortable and appropriate for the entire day.


Veuve Clicquot Brut Champagne

When I lived in Maui, my friends and I would set goals for our water sports activities. One of mine was landing a backroll in kiteboarding. When we achieved a goal, we would open a bottle of Champagne. Popping bubbly on the beach is the best, so it stuck.
