With temps getting warmer each day, I’m about ready for a beach/pool/lake/body of water day. I’m jealous of my college friends who are already taking advantage of the Texas weather. The most important things to bring are those that will protect you from the sun! I know I sound like a mom, but there’s nothing worse than a face that looks like an old shoe due to sun damage, so I rely on Chanel UV Essentiel. I use it under my makeup in the summer and it goes on so smooth, moisturizes, and hello, ultimate protection. A big hat and oversized sunglasses are also on the agenda for any sunny day. I like cover-ups that can go from the beach to dinner to drinks, etc. You never know where the day will take you, so might as well be ready! Add in fun towel, tumbler for various beverages, and a water-friendly sandal…you’re ready for some fun in the sun (am I cliche enough for you?). As for a bag, don’t invest too much money. It’ll get wet or sandy and will most likely be sitting on the ground. A Longchamp Le Pliage is an easy option, or just opt for the classic canvas tote, like this one from Land’s End. What are some of your beach essentials?
