The beginning of summer has got me feeling all sorts of tropical vibes, with the sun shining bright and the smell of salt in the air! My favorite time of year is back. Long, warm days by the sea, and nights under the stars have finally returned. I’m beyond excited to get back to my beach-bum ways, so I thought we’d honor the best season of all with a little blog post.
I was getting ready to beach it up this morning, so I dug out my handy beach bag from the top of my closet. I ran around the house and threw in all my trusty beach essentials, from my favorite sunblock to my go-to sunnies, and now I’m going to let you in on all my summer secrets! Get ready fashionistas, your about to get an exclusive look into V’s beach bag!
First things first, the towel. What’s a day on the beach without a cute summery towel to roll around on all day?! My personal fave is this one from The Beach People, an Australian company. It’s rounded, and super cute! Perfect for the beach!
Then for the lotion. I’m all about a nice tan, but I like to play it safe and protect my skin. My fave lotion is Sun Bum because it turns me into a bronzed goddess, but protects me from the sun’s killer rays, which is so so important! Don’t forget to throw this in your bag before you spend a day under the sun!
Next up is the hat, my favorite beach essential. Big, floppy straw hats are so in, and so cute. They keep you shaded and super stylish, and the perfect hat makes for the perfect selfie as well.
Don’t forget the sunnies! It’s all about oversized shades this year, so maybe head over to Quay, the super hip Australian company that specializes in adorably shaped sunglasses. Those Aussies really know how to do summer, huh? Protect your eyes from the sun and look super cute all at once!
The most important item in my bag is definitely the floatie. Want to float the waves on a giant inflatable flamingo? How about a giant donut? A huge slice of pizza? You NEED one of these adorable floaties this summer. They’re great for the beach and the pool, and they definitely yield superb photos. This is a must!
Last, but most certainly not least, is my favorite Versakini. No beach trip or pool day would be complete with out my cute suit!
Okay, there you have it girls: all of the essential items in my good old beach bag!
Time to break yours out and load it up with everything you need to have a great beach day. Summer is here, fashionistas, get excited!
Until Next Time,
