30 Must-Have Items for All Your Summer Adventures
We all know that summer vacation isn’t what it used to be. We, too, long for the endless days when our only concern was remembering to reapply sunscreen. But no more endless summers make us enjoy these blissful and brief summer weekends even more. Whether you’re camping, beaching or just hanging outside, the B+C Shop has all the fun swag to make your summer weekends that much more memorable. Keep reading to see 30 of our favorites!

3. James Franco Swimsuit ($120): We’ve been fans of Clashist for a while thanks to their quirky pop-culture clothing (Bill Murray leggings. ‘Nuff said.), so we’re pretty stoked to be carrying the brand ourselves. Because, really, who *doesn’t* want to be covered in James Franco at the beach?

3. Panier Cooler Tote Bag ($25): Meet the picnic basket that will actually keep your food cold.
4. Travel Flask + Shot Glasses ($39): Psst — just because you’re camping doesn’t mean you should be drinking out of Solo cups. Pick up this classy travel flask and shot glass set instead.
