here's what jenni earle recommends for your beach tote

1. the jenni earle wild rag

Try this soft, cotton gauze 'be brave' wild rag. Made in North Carolina with shibori dye techniques and hand-drawn designs, this piece is the perfect way to express your bravery and add a touch of moxie to your wardrobe.

The wild rag is an excellent travel companion, for cool and warm weather. We carry this one pool side, on a boat, or at the beach because the uses are whatever you can imagine them. For example using them as scarves, head scarves, and wraps for the beach works perfectly. Keep a wild rag in your beach bag this summer to wrap up your hair or tie around your waist. 


2. Any bandana! Each lightweight bandana is so much more than a bandana. It can be your compass, your reminder to step closer to your truest, most authentic version and it can be used as a tool. We've seen the bandana used many ways - as a head band, a hair tie, a cloth, a lunch box, a make-up bag, a koozie, a book sack, a hat band, and more. Wear it as a visual reminder, take it on vacation, or use for the daily uses. The bandana is also the number one trail companion at jenni earle as well.


3. A good book! Jenni belongs to a book club, and began 2023 by reading five books before the end of January. At the jenni earle store we also have a lending library of books available for inspiration. This book is not just a Jenni Earle pick, a recommedation of an avid reader, but also an Oprah's book club pick, Demon Copperhead:

"Set in the mountains of southern Appalachia, Demon Copperhead is the story of a boy born to a teenaged single mother in a single-wide trailer, with no assets beyond his dead father’s good looks and copper-colored hair, a caustic wit, and a fierce talent for survival. Relayed in his own unsparing voice, Demon braves the modern perils of foster care, child labor, derelict schools, athletic success, addiction, disastrous loves, and crushing losses. Through all of it, he reckons with his own invisibility in a popular culture where even the superheroes have abandoned rural people in favor of cities."

4. Sunglasses! Protect those peepers y'all. I keep a good pair of sunnies and a stylish eyewear chain to keep them close. Right now if you shop at Goodr, a popular sunglass brand, you can buy carbon neutral sunglasses and shop with a brand that gives 1% back to the planet. Which we love. Jenni Earle products are made with eco-friendly materials. Bandanas and t-shirts here at jenni earle are all made within a 400 mile radius and like Goodr's 1% back to the planet, because of Jenni Earle's origins and goal to inspire courage and authenticity, we give back 5% of net sales to mental health organizations.

5. HATS! Jenni Earle loves a good hat y'all especially with a custom hat band like a jenni earle bandana. Texas was a big inspiration in the hat love of Jenni Earle and the love is going strong. Gigi Pip is the hat maker Jenni Earle recommends right now. The Gigi Pip difference as you'll read on their website: 

Gigi Pip hats go through more than 65 steps prior to being sold. With nearly a dozen quality checks throughout the process, we take pride in every Gigi Pip hat sold. We know that confidence starts with quality and quality will give you confidence in the many hats you wear. 

At Jenni Earle we admire the details from the cotton in the ground that makes the bandana to the wood at the bottom of the trophy to every line printed and etched. So we know quality when we see it. Jenni's mom Karen once counted that each bandana goes through 11 quality touch points with 11 different sets of hands before it makes it to the customer and we love that kind of knowledge about how something is made. 

And that's all y'all! Let us know how you use your jenni earle products through email or instagram we want to know the unique places courage is taking you!
