Beach Day Necessities

Who doesn’t love a nice day on the beach?! I am sharing some of my favorite beach necessities for those sunny days!

Beach Bag & Towels

If you are willing to splurge a little, Vineyard Vines has a wide variety of beach bags that are very useful to pack all your beach necessities. Vineyard Vines is at Target now so you can be stylish while spending less! Zappos has many adorable and more affordable beach bags that will hold everything you need. The Roxy bag screams ‘chillin by the palm trees’. A reliable beach towel is something I’m always looking for. The navy striped towel has thicker material and is super soft and absorbent. I can’t say no to tassels and this blue and white tasseled towel is perfect when laying down for a tan.

 

Hats with Sunglasses

Straw hats are an iconic accessory at the beach and I can’t stop looking at the gorgeous colorful tasseled floppy hat from Nordstrom! The Billabong straw hat gives me Italian vacation vibes and it would be cute with any outfit, even going to the beach. Bucket hats are a huge trend right now and I hopped on the bandwagon and bought this bucket hat with a blue bow to throw in one of the beach bags mentioned earlier. Recently, I saw a pair of Chanel glasses that I fell in love with, and found the perfect knock-off at Target. The cat eyed sunglasses are glamorous, fun, and look high end.

Flip Flops & Coverups

I couldn’t recommend Reef flip flops enough! They are very comfy, stylish, and reliable. The pink flip flops with a touch of black are a classic pair. If you want a little height, the black flip flops with a glitter detail are the ones for you. In my opinion, the perfect coverup makes your look complete! Kimono coverups are in trend and the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe! The Billabong kimono is stylish and I love the pattern. Billabong has the most darling beach/swim accessories and more kimonos like the one in the picture! Abercrombie’s swim game gets better every year! I’m obsessed with the dress-like coverup because you can wear it to brunch before you hit the beach (it comes in black and white!).

Sunscreen

You shouldn’t go to the beach without sunscreen! Sun Bum is my go-to for sunscreen and I have tried many of their products. The clear zinc sunscreen rubs in clear and it doesn’t feel like you are wearing sunscreen at all. SPF 70 spray sunscreen from Sun Bum is one I keep repurchasing. It smells like coconut and doesn’t feel as oily as other spray sunscreens I’ve tried. The Sun Bum coconut lip balm with SPF 30 puts you in a summer mood while protecting your lips from the sun 🙂 I’ve been wanting to try the clear Glossier sunscreen for the longest time and have heard great things about it. If you have tried it, leave a comment on how you like it for your fellow fashionistas!
