My Beach Essentials: Jayma Cardoso
The owner of Montauk's Surf Lodge shows us her summer must-haves.
Few have mastered beach chic better than Jayma Cardoso, the Brazilian powerhouse behind The Surf Lodge in Montauk. When she's holding court at her uber-popular Hamptons hangout, she's usually looking effortlessly flawless in a flowing beach dress. In her down time, she soaks up the sun and sand with her new baby or hits the gym. "It's bikini season!" she dutifully reminds us.
Here, she shares a few of her must-have items for Montauk—just in time for the start of summer. You're going to want to have just about every item on this list for your next sandy escape.
