Whether you're headed to the cabin, the beach or a backyard BBQ this holiday weekend, don't leave home without these sunny essentials.

Prive Concept Vert Volumizing Froth ($24) — No more beauty-minis for this girl. Give me this full-sized, non-aerosol mousse that cleverly foams on contact and meets TSA guidelines.

Bobbi Brown Beach Shimmering Fragrance Oil ($34) — Also known as St. Tropez in a bottle, Bobbi's cult-favorite fragrance now comes in a glimmering body oil. It makes a lovely hostess gift, too.

Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35 ($39) — If you haven't yet tried a beauty balm, now's the time. A skin-perfecting, hydrating yet mattifying multitasker, this one's also packed with sun protection.

Soleil Organique Mineral Sunscreen for Body SPF 45 ($45) — Effective, elegant, all-natural sun protection isn't easy to find. Moisturizing shea butter and almond oil ensure this hard-working block is neither pasty nor goopy.

Butter London Lacquer in Snog ($14) — With a name like that, this pop of pink is the only accessory you'll need this weekend.

Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pads ($18 and up) — The power of Dr. D's quick exfoliating peel pads, plus major self-tanning action. Swipe one over your face at night, and awaken with smooth, clear, bronzed skin. Bonus: they're now available in a body version!

Kate Spade "Lounge Ladies" Harmony Tote ($198) — Channel your inner Joan Holloway and toss everything—including your polka-dot bikini—into this retro number.
