I love living in California and having instant access to the most gorgeous coast in the United States. I'll often pack a light picnic and book and make a relaxing day of it.
In order to keep the focus on the beach I like to keep things simple for what I pack and wear. My outfit of the day is an example of one of my typical beach outfits on a sunny day. Hat, lightweight shirt, jeans, and sandals (plus braids to keep my hair from blowing into my face while I read).
When I recently went to Natural Bridges Beach in Santa Cruz I brought two books to read for the day. Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead by Facebook's COO, Sheryl Sandberg (an excellent book for women trying to learn how to "sit at the table" and assert their value) and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (just for fun).
