The One Beach Towel You Need to Make it Through Summer
Memorial Day weekend has come and gone, meaning summer is here to stay. The one accessory that’s a must-have (besides a swimsuit, obviously) is a beautiful towel. Snowe’s beach towel is wider than a twin bed so that you can nap on it without any sandy worries. It’s pretty much big enough for two (nearly a foot longer than most standard beach towels), so you get to be the hero if someone forgets theirs. The 100 percent long staple cotton is made in Portugal and is super plush, but can still get thrown in the washer and dryer — because no-frills is always best.

Huckberry x Chippewa Service Boot
Save $97: Finding a boot that’s built to last isn’t that difficult. However, getting your hands on a boot that’ll stand up to everything you throw at it and has an affordable price tag is a much rarer item. Right now, you can save $97 on the exclusive Huckberry and Chippewa Service boot made from full-grain American-hide. Additionally, there’s no break-in period — these boots come as comfortable as they’ll probably ever get. You could go out of your way, spend a few hundred dollars more on custom-tailord boots with a torturous two-year break-in period, but why would you when this beautiful bot presents itself? The Huckberry x Chippewa Service Boot will be the last pair of boots you’ll have to buy for quite some time. — Bryan Campbell
