Our annual beach vacation begins exactly 12 days from now, so with that in mind, here's the Friday Over $500 version of all the things I like to have with me at the beach. Sand not included.

1. Norma Kamali swimsuit, $350.  2. Knockaround sunglasses, $16.* 3. Z Gallerie striped pavilion, $699.  4. Etro Caftan, $750.  5. Fruity beach drink, priceless. 6. Hermes Vinyl Kelly beach bag, $500.  7. Temps Des Reves Ice Cream Dreams silk scarf, $275.  8. K Jacques nubuck and calf hair sandals, $270.

*These are not even close to $500, but they are the perfect beach sunglasses. I urge you to get several for both yourself and your friends.
