The East Coast is finally thawing, and Memorial Day is almost frighteningly close. Granted, you won’t be hitting the beach with only a book and a cocktail—there are the little ones to consider, yes? So grab an L.L. Bean Boat Tote (because your “designer” tote has been gathering dust since a Bush was in office) and pack it with our favorite add-ons. —CC

THE HATS: Zutanos’ classic stripe comes in a rainbow of colors, while Bonpoint’s sweet cotton floppy brim hat will compliment their line of suits and summer attire. For your little man, check out Gap’s straw fedora or the class (and unisex) Petit Bateau bucket hat.

THE SUNGLASSES: Janie & Jack makes a glam pair that even Audrey would approve. For those of you with little hipsters, a mini Wayfarer is a too-cool-for-school option.

THE SUNSCREEN: Our kids are California Babies, all the way. This sunscreen caters to sensitive skin. Overall, this is the most important “accessory” your little one should wear.
