Beach bag 101

School’s out for the summer, so that means it’s time to head out by the water and get some sun! Whether it’s the beach, pool, or lake you need some necessities to get you through the day. Here’s some tips on what to bring!

The Bag:

You’re going to need a tote that can hold all of the items you need, plus all of the miscellaneous items you end up taking with you. If you’re anything like me, you always end up carrying around things you don’t need. So you’re going to need a good size bag.  Here are some of my faves:

$: LL.Bean Bote and Tote, starts at $19.95. The original, the classic, I’ve had one of these bags for nearly 8 years and it’s one of the best $25 I’ve ever spent. So durable, and if it ever rips or breaks (hint: it won’t) LL.Bean will replace it for free! It’s a prep icon, and you can even get it monogrammed so you can tell it apart from everyone else’s!

$$: J.Crew Boardwalk Tote, $49.50. I really like the stripes on this bag, because they give it a nautical, beachy feel. Plus, the navy color means it won’t show dirt easily.

$$$: Kate Spade Tiki Bon Shopper, $148.00. Pricy, yes, but the cocktail print is darling. Piña Coladas, Mojitos, Mai Tai’s…mmmm I’m dreaming for a sunny tropical happy hour! Also, it’s made of durable coated poplin, so it can be wiped down and is fairly weatherproof on the outside. Cheers!

After you have the bag, essentials include a towel, sunglasses, a good read, chapstick, sunscreen, a good hat, and a water bottle. These big bags ensure you’ll be able to fit everything in one place!

What’s your go-to beach bag?
