• Beach Bag Essentials

    It's no secret that we'd live at the beach if we could. For now, though, we'll settle for long, sunny beach days whenever we can. To avoid leaving the beach every few hours, we've nailed packing a beach bag down to a science. Below is a list of beach bag essentials you must have with you for a day of oceanside fun.

    Sun Screen  

    Should really go without say, but you cannot go to the beach without sun screen. Ever. 

    Our Recommendation: Sun Bum

    Towel  

    For drying off, sure, but more importantly, to lay down to enjoy a good book or nap.

    Our Recommendation: The Beach People

    Reusable Water Bottle  

    Plastic is terrible for the ocean and for marine life, and it also doesn't keep your water cold or the sand out. We love reusable water bottles, especially on the beach.

    Our Recommendation: Larq

    Speaker  

    Alexa: play our Summer 2019 Beach Playlist

    Our Recommendation: Ultimate Ears

    Shades  

    We do not recommend bringing your favorite shades to the beach. Sand scratches, the salt disintegrates, the waves steal them...it's just not worth it. After many casualties, we've found some cute pairs on Amazon and the like.

    Our Recommendation: Vintage-Inspired Sunglasses

    Rose Water  

    To refresh and hydrate your skin throughout the day.

    Our Recommendation: Aerin Rose Water / Thayers Rose Water Mix

    Jewelry Bag  

    We keep our jewelry on, but it's proper protocol to remove it if you want to keep it as pristine as possible. If that's the case, a proper jewelry storage bag is better than the bottom of your beach bag, tangled in a nautical knot.

    Our Recommendation: Hattie Banks Storage Bag

    Book  

    Swim, read, sleep, repeat.

    Our Recommendation: Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald 

    Beach Game  

    Grab your friends, and start a game. There's nothing like sports in the sand.

    Our Recommendation: Zurner Oceanic Backgammon

    Camera  

    To capture the summer moments.

    Our Recommendation: Instax Polaroid Camera
