How to Pack the Perfect Beach Bag

Hello from the shore and Happy 4th! 

If, like me, you're planning on never leaving the beach today, you'll want to make sure you're fully prepared for hours of relaxation. That's why, I'm sharing my beach bag must-haves with you today. Pack these, and you'll worry less that you're forgetting something, and focus more on forgetting everything. 


Above is a beautiful diagram of yesterday's beach bag.... let's all just get over the fact that I made a diagram in my spare time on vacation. The important thing is that these are the items that make up a perfectly packed tote! 

Want more details? Well since you asked...


Start with a hilariously adorable bag. This one is from Old Navy and was a birthday gift from my sister Alexandra. 

Then add the following: 

sunglasses: 

Remember when I told you I lost my sunglasses (*she said through tears*)? Well, this is a new pair from Madewell that I'm obsessed with. They have a vintage vibe and are super flattering for round faces like mine. They also have them in a ton of colors (pssst: some are on sale!)

book:

I'm currently reading the New York Times Best Seller Modern Lovers with the rest of the world. I'm still at the beginning. I'll report back when I finish.


cover up:

Livinggg for this nautical striped cover up by Old Navy -- Another birthday present from Alexandra!

headphones:

It's not a beach day without music. Don't forget to prep your perfect playlist before you go!





lip balm:

I'm crazy obsessed with sugar lip treatments. They look and smell amazing plus the SPF 15 makes them perfect for a beach day! I'm particularly in love with the shade Nude for a really natural touch of pink.

sunscreen:

I'm a sunscreen nut and I refused to get burnt this year! Here are some of my SPF faves:

Supergoop! Sunscreen Oil
Supergoop! Mineral Sunscreen
Cotz Face SPF 40
Hawaiian Tropics Sheer Touch SPF 30


deodorant:

This is always nice to have in your bag when you get just a little too hot.


hat:

I'm seriously in love with this denim baseball cap from Madewell! Just don't ask me to wear it backwards, because then I'm Mary-Kate from It Takes Two



And there you have it!

I hope your 4th is filled with barbecues, sparklers and of course, the beach.
