What to wear now! Six beach essentials for 4th of July holiday: To commemorate the birth of our great nation, I usually head to the beach for the long weekend to celebrate with friends and family. After years of Friday afternoon road trips to the Hamptons, I know the routine like the back of my hand. Always trying to dodge the traffic but always losing, I now make sure my ipod has fabulous music so I can get my car seat dance groove on. What does this weekend have in store for you?
