If you’re lucky enough to be spending any time by the beach this summer, it’s a fabulous opportunity to be fashion-forward and decked out with must-have gear.
Bag and Towel
For starters, take a good bag that’s holds a lot but is also easy to clear of sand when you get home. Fill it with an oversized towel (one that’s round is super on-trend) that you can sit on in the sand and wrap yourself in after riding the waves.
Goggles and Clothes
Pack a smaller bag to fit inside the beach bag
with items like goggles and a change of clothes that you can also put a wet bathing suit in after you change.
Stuff to do in the Sand
If you’re spending the day at the beach, pack some stuff to keep you busy. A good book and waterproof speakers are two good ideas. And if you’re going to spend your time just sitting in the sun, pack plenty of sunscreen, even for those hazy days.
Snacks and Sips
It’s important to keep yourself hydrated and nourished when out in the sun. Pack some snacks like fruits and nuts, energy bars, even PB&J sandwiches (cut them into shapes with cookie cutters to be super cute).
Make sure to take plenty of pictures in plenty of poses because beach pics get some of the highest likes on insta—and if you’re there for sunset, then that’s just bonus points!
