Let's Go Shopping!/ Beaching It


Hello, dear friends.  I had to edit this post.  I originally thought that this weekend was Memorial Day.   It is not the first time that I didn't know what day it is.  There's a reason why I don't have a real job.

I got a nice surprise yesterday.  The wallpaper that I ordered for the powder room, which was not expected until the end of June, arrived on my doorstep.  So today, I am on the hunt for a new lighting fixture.


I think that I found the mirror.  Now I have to find out how long it will take to get it.  That's always the fun part.

Today is my fourth installment of my Let's Go Shopping! series.    You can find the past posts here, here, and here.

As you may have guessed, this post is all about beach and pool accessories. 


On to my least favorite beach accessory.

Good Housekeeping named this swimsuit the best overall slimming swimsuit for 2021.  It minimizes the tummy and waist.

For some reason, I think that this model doesn't need a slimming swimsuit.

Just a hunch.

This suit is from the Magicsuit collection.

I would need a magician to make me look this good in it!

For the past couple of years, I have been buying my swimsuits through Land's End.  I like it because the tops and bottoms are sold separately. 

And the best news is they have built-in tummy control.

s are sold

For the lady who needs extra protection from the sun.

And now on to my favorite accessory, the almighty coverup.

I ordered this one.

According to Travel & Leisure, these are the best beach towels of 2021.

These are perfect for the family who always comes home with fewer towels than what they left with.  
You'll know exactly who to blame.

Don't forget your flip-flops!
Travel & Leisure named these the best overall flip-flops for women in 2021. 


Tory won the best designer award.

This pair won for best overall flip-flops for men.
You probably don't care, do you?
Just buy him a pair of these, and that way, you can take the money saved on his and put them towards your new Tory's. 

I love this hat, but I think you have to be taller than me to carry it off.  I have a feeling that I would look like a mushroom.

I have this hat. 
It has UPF 50.

This took home the award for best overall sunscreen from dermatologists, according to Prevention magazine. 

This is my favorite tinted moisturizer with SPF30.
It is creamy and gives more coverage than others that I have tried.

I keep one of these in my purse for touch-ups.
It also gets rid of the shine.

This is the less expensive version that has gotten great reviews.

Last but not least, don't forget your beach reads.

I hope that y'all have a happy and safe weekend.

Until next time...

I'm Katie. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am an empty nester meandering through my middle-aged years while entangled in the never-ending process of renovating an antique home on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I love to write about books, movies, TV, celebrities, decorating, and weekend adventures. My favorite writing material is derived from my family: the Mister, my girls, #1 and #2, and my two untrainable, rambunctious pups, Chowdah and Chili.


  1. We are 10 days away from Memorial Day, it'll be Monday, May 31.

  2. Might I suggest Lamps Plus as an online source for lighting inspiration? We've ordered several lights and lamps from them and have never been disappointed.

    Loved The Blue Bistro and Jackie and Maria.

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Adding those beach reads to my list! 😍

  6. I can always count on you, Katie, for having the best shopping lists! I just bought the Land's End coverup in all three patterns, the Neutrogena sunscreen, and The Social Graces book! Thanks for the ideas!! Love, love, love your blog!

  7. Hello dear Katie, a great selection of suits and cover-ups,I always enjoy shopping with you. Nice suggestions for great beach reads as well. Hope you are have a great weekend..........hugs.

  8. I have learned to double check the clothes I fall in love with on-line or in catalogs because it's not so much the dress or blouse I want, but the figure of the model wearing it! Yeah, the cover ups would be my favorite part. :)

  9. These are all great finds, Katie. Let me know when you find a bathing suit that covers from neck to ankle. xo Laura
