Must-Haves for a Day at the Beach // Bags, Books, Sunscreen and More!

February 19, 2020

Bucket list: move to the Caribbean and open up a beach bar. Reality: probably not happening anytime soon. While our beach bar dreams may be put on hold for awhile [or indefinitely], frequent beach vacations are a must in my books! With many of you are finalizing details for upcoming Spring Break trips, we figured it was time to put together a quick-reference guide for our must-haves for a day at the beach!

PS if you’re looking for some outfit inspo, you’re going to want to check out this post with over 30 warm weather vacation outfits [swimsuits, coverups, dresses, rompers, and more!].

Beach Bags: To start, we wanted to give you plenty of options for the bag that holds the whole day in its [sandy] hands! With several styles, designs, and price points, there’s something for everyone!

Now that we know what we’re putting our day at the beach in, it’s time to take a look at the items that make their way inside our bags!

Beach Hats: Keep your head protected from the sun [or your wind blown hair looking flawless] with a great beach hat! We love this floppy one and this structured one.

Waterproof Phone Pouch: Don’t be afraid to take your phone into the water when you have this pouch! You can even take photos while the phone is inside. Plus, it’s only $6.99!

Sunscreen: Apply, and reapply often! You can’t be too cautious with your skin! The sunscreens we turn to are Supergoop, Sun Bum, and the Sun Bum SPF Lip Balm!

Water Bottles: Hydrate, hydrate hydrate [we didn’t say what you’d be hydrating with ;)] These cute water bottles will keep your drink cold and cute!  1 // 2 // 3 //

Waterproof Speaker: Get your favorite playlist ready, because the whole beach is going to be listening! We LOVE this one!

Beach Towels: You can’t go to the beach without some beach towels! We love these four styles 1 // 2 // 3 //

Sunglasses: These are my current favorite sunglasses and the same style in blue [but a tad bit bigger]! I wear them all the time!

Beach Games : Looking for something to keep you busy at the beach? This game is always a hit and will have you working up a sweat [and not just from the sun!]. 

Beach Chairs: Our girl Claire lived in Florida for awhile, and these were her favorite beach chairs that have held up for years!

Towel Clips: Tired of constantly readjusting your towel as you move around or the wind blows? Problem solved with these towel clips! Or how fun is this set?

Books:  Are you the type of girl who would lay by the ocean and read all day? Girlfriend, me too. These are a few of my favorite beach reads 1 // 2 // 3

 

What are YOUR must haves for a beach day? Anything we should add? Hopefully you’re planning a beach day soon!

    I’m reading The Fifth Avenue Story Society by Rachel Hauck right now, and I CANNOT PUT IT DOWN. Best book I’ve read in years. I kind of wish I had saved it for the beach . . . but there’s no rule that I can’t read it again in June, right?

Here at LIY, we believe cheap wine doesn’t have to taste like cheap wine [not that we would know the difference, since we only ever drink cheap wine].
