What’s In Your Beach Bag?

Going to the beach is one of my favorite things to do …… the sound of the ocean, the water, the sand between my toes, a comfy lounge chair, a good book, friends and great libations …. To make my beach experience primo, having the right things in my beach bag can make or break my day at the beach.  It’s no fun if you’ve forgotten your Evian spritzer and have to run back to the hotel, house or drug store to retrieve it.  So, I’m curious, what’s in your beach bag dear readers?

  • Besides the beach essentials, I never start my “sit in” on the beach without my Kindle, a visor and Evain Water spray…and then I try to bury my cell phone in the bottom of the bag!

    Happy Tanning

  • Oh, what fun! I try to keep it fairly simple. I use a huge monogrammed LL Bean tote to cart around my stuff: sunscreen, vegan Lara bars for me, a good crime novel,my iPhone, batik sarong, water bottle, my son’s sippy cup, snacks, extra set of swimmers and a smile.

  • In my beach bag: Kindle, suncreen, wide-brimmed hat, a stylish coverup for those unsightly places, a healthy snack, water, a not-so-healthy-but-way-more-fun adult beverage (mint, ginger and/or citrus preferred), my favorite lounge chair and good company.

    Enjoy the waves!

  • Snacks, water, extra towels and floaties!

  • I was born in Miami, so I my mind there’s nothing better than the beach! I carry the plastic LV tote beach bag … In it ~ I confess to still being a tanner, so tanning lotion and lip balm (30+ SPF); L’Occitane Citrus Verbena Revitalizing Face & Body Mist; my iPhone & iPad with Kindle app; tons of magazines; my favorite leopard print and lime green beach towel; an extra bathing suit and patio dress or kaftan; grapes, and water with lemon slices. Oh joy!
