beach essentials


I’ve only been to the beach once this year. My boyfriend took me to Coney Island a few weeks ago. It was my first time visiting and it was awesome. We spent the day walking a long the beach and boardwalk. I collected some sea shells and enjoyed the sand between my toes. We got icees and then had a serious amount of fun driving some bumper cars. I haven’t driven a bumper car in years and it was one of the best and funnest things I’ve done this year.

Luckily going to Coney Island wont be my last beach trip this year. My good friend Amber is getting married in October and doing a destination wedding in Cancun! I love love love Mexico especially the Riviera Maya. The water is crystal clear and warm and I can’t wait to rediscover Tulum and swim in secret cenotes. We may even do a little zip lining over the forest, although I’m a little afraid to do that. I’ve already gone crazy order a slew of dresses and beach essential for the trip including this extra large visor. It’s coming in pretty handy for these 90 degrees days here in New York City too.

If you’ve been following me on Instagram or Snap Chat (@monroesteele) you’d know my computer crashed last week. There’s pretty much no hope for it and the last two post have been done using friends and my boyfriends computer. I’m super bummed so please bare with me with the frequency of blog post.
