Long holiday weekend, here we come

To kick off beach season, we asked our favorite tastemaker (and LE CATCH blogger) Marlien Rentmeester to round up her must-haves for summer weekends—from Madewell and beyond. Happy Friday!

1. The Whistlestop Sandal: “These sandals can take me from the city to the beach, all in stride.”

2. Drifter Shades: “Love the retro shape.”

3. The Bungalow Stripe Caravan Mailbag: “A roomy carry all is essential for the beach. This one fits everything from magazines to scarves to cover-ups.”

4. Clambake Cover-Up: “Speaking of cover-ups, this is the ultimate—slightly sheer and cozy at the same time.”

5. Zimmerman Noir Eyelet Underwire Bikini: “Black is always flattering and sexy—two adjectives I want in a bikini!”

6. Leather Wrap Bracelets: “For a nice pop of color against my tan skin.”

7. La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL Lait SPF: “Water-resistant with a nice light texture. Plus, the French packaging always transports me to some chic faraway beach.”

8. Too Red nail polish by RGB: “It’s like ’40s-starlet red: out and out glam.”

9. Evian Facial Spray: “It’s not as good as jumping in the ocean, but a spritz of this comes quite close.”

10. Jayson Home beach blanket: “Handwoven and so gorgeous.”

11. Fresh-squeezed juice: “I’m hooked on the apple strawberry coconut and almond milk ones from Pressed Juicery, but any fresh juice will do!”
