Sweet Summertime: What's in My Beach Bag?

On a good day it's about a 15 minute drive from my house to the beach, so I am out there quite often. I always carry my beach bag with me with all of the necessary items for beach survival.

{Beach Towel}
This is actually one of the towels I brought to use at school, but it is perfect for the beach. It's bigger than a normal beach towel so you don't get your legs covered in sand.

There is no doubt that I am extremely pale and extremely prone to getting sunburn. I'm so tired of getting burned and I think it's important to protect your skin, so I choose high SPF sunscreens. I also bring a chapstick with SPF, because, yes, even my lips will get burned. It's awful.

If you aren't bringing water to the beach, at least bring some sort of beverage. Whether you're out there for just a few hours or all day long, you're going to want to stay hydrated.

{A Hat}
I always keep a hat in my bag. Obviously they keep you protected from the sun, but they also come in handy for taming crazy beach hair.

Because you never know when hunger is going to strike.

Gotta have the glasses. It's always a good idea to keep a cheap pair in your bag too. Going to the beach and forgetting your sunglasses is the worst. Squint city.

{A Book}
Last but not least, a good book. I'm guilty of taking books and never actually reading them, but sometimes you just need a break from swimming and sunbathing and sandcastles.

I'd love to know what some of your beach bag essentials are!
