The Perfect Beach Day

posted on: July 24, 2015

 The other week, it seemed as if temps reached up to 100 degrees practically every single day. On those days, the only thing we could do was to find somewhere to sweat it out, and cool off.

We drove out to Long Island to relax at Long Beach. Long Beach is quiet, beautiful, and worth the drive. You manage to skip the crowds, which is a huge plus for us. I get too worried about the kids when there are what feels like hundreds of kids that look just my kids on a crowded beach. I always fear I'll mistake one as my own, and then lose site of my own. Has that ever happened to you? One of my old friends would put bright clothes on her child in situations like that. A bright pink jacket in the cooler months, and a funky hat in the summer. I think the idea is genius.

Naked, a long time partner, sent us a few of their organic and fair trade certified coconut waters to give a good run on our next outing in the heat. The coconut water arrived just in time for this hot day... and week. And I kept dipping in the fridge throughout the week to replenish every chance I got.
A few more photos behind the break. 


Thank you New York for having these great escapes right outside the city, I always seem to forget they exist.

I hope you all stay hydrated and happy during your weekend explorations!

This post was in partnership with Naked. As always, thank you for supporting my partners that I believe in.

  6. I love your suit, Latonya! And coconut water is always the best, especially when it gets to those unbearable hot days in the summer.
