My Beach Bag Essentials!

With beach season in full swing I have been thinking about the many staycations I’ll be having at the beach this summer, being that we’re only an hour away now! (yay) I want to share with y’all my beach bag must-haves!

My favorite BAGS


Pink by VS // Black White Geo 


Splurge // Kate Spade // Beware of Sharks

This one is just too fab.



Aerie // Panama Hat

I actually just got this hat this week, and let me tell ya it’s quite lovely. I really love it and I’ll be wearing it in Vancouver next week!


Urban Outfitters // Open Weave Stitched Panama

Another great Panama hat…. I love the size of them; they’re great for facial coverage to keep your skin protected from the sun but they’re not too huge!


Target // Clubmaster Gold Tortoise Sunglasses

P.S. They’re only $14.99!


Splurge// Seafolly // The Factory Kaftan


Nordstrom Rack // Herschel Supply Co. Beach Towel

I neeeeeed this towel. Need it.


Rainbow Sandals // Single Layer Classic Leather

These are my personal favorite sandals for the beach. I don’t like to wear too nice of sandals because I don’t want them ruined by the water. I’ve had my rainbows for years and they’re still great. They’re perfect for getting wet.. they’re even made for it!


Kind Bars // Salted Carmel and Dark Chocolate Nut

These are my current obsession. I loooove ’em. They’re perfect for throwing in your bag and snackin’ on after you’re hungry from working on your tan all day 🙂 You can get them at most grocery and convienent stores!


Barnes & Noble // To Kill a Mockingbird

It’s always nice to pack a good read. This book is my ultimate favorite.


Honest // Organic Baby Powder

I lovvvve the beach but I hate having sandy feet on the drive home. I try to keep baby powder on hand when making a beach trip…. sprinkle a little on and it takes the sand right off. It’s also nice to put on your hands to get sand off before eating!


Sephora // They’re Real! Mascara

The best waterproof mascara.


Sun Bum // Sunscreen and Lip Balm

I adore all of Bun Bums products. I tell everyone about them. I have super sensitive skin and can’t use most sunscreens but this stuff is bomb and doesn’t irritate my skin one bit.


Kerastase // Immersion Nutritive 

This is like liquid gold for your hair. I put it in anytime I go swimming or to the beach. It has UV protection and coats your hair with a moisturizer so it doesn’t soak up any of the bad stuff in the water. I don’t go to the beach without it!
