I’m Going to the Beach… The 2019 Edition.

On set in Key West for HGTV!


When you were little did you ever play “I’m Going To The Grocery Store?” It was a memorization game where you had to remember alphabetically the contents of a shopping list from A to Z. Well this month we’re going shopping for an outing to the beach! Even if it’s just up to Zuma to surf, or Malibu for the weekend, it still pays to look chic.

I’m going to the beach and what do I need? Let’s start with THE swimsuit. Even when almost naked a man should look stylish. I’m going sexily modest with Tom Ford’s sleek CAMOUFLAGE CLASSIC SWIM SHORT. Paired with a polo or tunic they’re incredibly posh.


I’m going to the beach and what do I need? Sunglasses to block my eyes from the glare. I’m feeling a bit old school so I’m doing the “Leland” honey gold aviator sunglasses in a modern new shape by SALT OPTICS. SALT manages to fuse technology and style, and each of their frames are handmade.


I’m going to the beach and what do I need? Something to protect my feet from the hot sand. Let’s do PETER MILLAR X HARI MARI FLIP FLOPS in baby blue or gray! Not your typical flips, these feature memory foam-filled soles.



I’m going to the beach and what do I need? Something fun to carry drinks, and snacks. I’m far too cool to carry my mom’s beat up cooler from Coleman so I’m looking for something hip. Try a vintage-style cooler from WEST ELM. It’s retro and chic.



I’m going to the beach and what do I need? A cool summer cocktail to quench my thirst. I’m shaking up Pink Margaritas with a shot of Chambord.

Ingredients:
– 1 1/2 oz 3 Amigos blanco tequila
– 3/4 oz Chambord liqueur
– 3 oz sweet and sour mix
– Limes

Add tequila, Chambord, and the sweet and sour mix in a cocktail shaker. Squeeze in half a lime. Shake, then strain into a sugar rimmed margarita glass over ice. Garnish with a lime wheel.


I’m going to the beach and what do I need? A fantastic new car to make the boys stop and stare. I’ll take a vintage Avanti! It’s a souped up, sexy American classic. And surprisingly they were produced by Studebaker!


I’m going to the beach and what do I need? Since I don’t know how to drive I need a hottie to designate. I’ll take Taron Egerton, or Richard Madden who are each so terrific in Rocket Man, please.


Have fun this summer! And don’t forget the sunscreen!
