Today's post is dedicated to what's inside your beach bag! I loveee bags (any kind), but especially big totes for the beach or the pool. I would love to have these items in my beach bag. Bright colors are so trendy right now, and all of these items are perfect for looking cute by the ocean or the pool. Here are my necessities:
1. Jelly sandals, Lilly Pulitzer, $38
I love the sailboat pattern on these, and the fact that they're jelly! You can wash them off after the beach and ta-dah, good as new.
2. Earrings, Silver Lining Decor, $12
The color of these reminds me of water in the tropics.
3. Cole Haan sunglasses, Nordstrom, $150
I'm loving the tortoise-shell and the retro feel.
4. Docksider clutch, Lilly Pulitzer, $128
The stripes are nautical but the hot pink adds a feminine touch. Stow your makeup or sunscreen in here to keep it out of the sun.
5. Bobby pin, Kate Spade, $45
Get your bangs off your face with these cuties!
6. Nail polish in "Meet Me at Sunset", Essie, $8
Perfect for fingers and toes.
7. Pink bangles, Vis-a-Vis, $55
Plastic bangles are perfect for the pool because you don't have to worry about them getting messed up in the water.
8. Straw hat, Kate Spade, $75
Keep the sun off your pretty face with this gorgeous sun hat.
9. Tinted lip balm, Ulta, $3.99
This pretty tinted lib balm contains natural UV filters to protect against the sun.
10. Wine tote, J Crew, $45
Make sure your wine stays chilled while your poolside.. this case is so cute I think I would have to find other reasons to use it!
In addition, I always have to bring along a book of sudoku-puzzles and a good read! Speaking of good-reads, I need a new book to read now that I have more free time. Does anyone have any suggestions for good books?
