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?

The second we see the first robin chirping and daffodil popping through the ground, we’re heading straight outside for cocktails on the back deck and books on the front porch swing. Don’t mind the fact that we might be wearing sweatshirts and Ugg boots because it’s actually still freezing. But man, that sun! It’ll do […]
