A look into my beach bag…

Ever feel like you are taking everything but the kitchen sink when you are packing for a beach trip? Guilty! I am heading to the beautiful Isle of Palms in South Carolina next week for a family beach vacation and the packing has commenced! I am sharing the contents of my beach bag today!

Most important- sunscreen! As we get older… it is so important to take care of our skin. My days of baby oil on the beach are LONG gone and now I reach for a bottle of Arbonne’s SPF 30 sunscreen! It’s the best sunscreen ever! I also add the travel size tube of Aromaflage insect repellent in case the bugs are also enjoying a day on the beach. It smells great and doesn’t make you feel like you are covered in chemicals (see my review from last year here!).  A hat and sunglasses are also important to pack for a long day in the sun. I will be reppin’ the home team with this Hornet’s hat and these Raen shades are not only fashionable, but they protect my baby blues from the harsh rays of the sun! Protect your shades with a cute sunglass case, like this knit one from Jonathan Adler!

A good book & some jams also make the day more fun! I am admittedly Bravo-obsessed, so Andy Cohen’s book “The Andy Cohen Diaries” is sure to keep me entertained all day! The Wireless Monster Amp (available in store) blasts tunes from your phone without cables, so no sandy phone for you! I can almost hear the beach music and waves crashing now…

Other must-haves for my beach bag are a large beach towel, a good watch and a flowy cover-up! I got this large beach towel from Pottery Barn a few years back and like any good Southern girl, I added my monogram in the corner! I am pretty tall, so the length of this towel is perfect and it’s super soft!  Daniel Welllington’s watches have a simple, classic design and with interchangeable NATO straps, you can customize to match your look! I am going with the navy & blue NATO strap for my vacation because, America! This Karlie jumpsuit is super light-weight, has a relaxed fit and is easy to throw on over your bathing suit. Want to run to the ice cream shop? Throw this on and Hellooooo Gorgeous, I’ll take extra sprinkles!

I hope my beach bag essentials help you a little while packing for your next vacation! Now to figure out how to fit a margarita blender in here…

XOXO -Keri
