Beach Essentials

I'm at the beach! I have a few things that I consider "beach essentials" that I thought I would share with you!

1 - Beach Bag// First off, I always bring a beach bag to fit all of my stuff in! I love the Lilly one above!

2 - Sunglasses// You can't go to the beach without sunglasses! My eyes are super sensitive to light, so I can't go anywhere without them!

3 - A Good Beach Read// This year I've brought along Beachcombers by Nancy Thayer and Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert.

4 - Magazine// I bought Vanity Fair with Caitlyn Jenner on the front when I came out, but it's an incredibly long article so I just haven't gotten around to it!

5 - Sunscreen// This is a given. With my super white skin my mom won't let me get away with anything less than 50 SPF!

6 - A Cover Up// I need something to walk from the beach house to the pool to the beach, and maybe running into a store or something!

7 - Flip Flips// I always bring a gross pair of flip flops that way I don't ruin them in the sand, pool and ocean water! This year they're my shower shoes from my dorm!

8 - A Sand Sifter// This seems completely random, but one of my favorite things to do is to sit by the water in a  beach chair and when the waves come in put the little sifter out and see if I caught anything fun! Mostly we look for sharks teeth or little clams because we like to see them dig back into the sand!

What are your beach essentials?


  1. A good book is definitely the number one thing on my beach list, well next to the beach bag to hold it all!

  2. That beach bag is so cute! My favorite thing is reading on the beach!

  3. I'm heading to the beach this weekend and all of these are definitely on my list! My favorite thing to do at the beach is read!

  4. I have a lilly beach bag as well! It's the perfect beach day accessory

  7. Sunscreen, cute sunglasses and a good book are my must-haves for the beach!

  8. I love those sunglasses!
    For me, beach essentials are sunglasses, sunscreen, a book, and a tumbler full of water!
