Today I'm kicking off Beach Week on Style Within Reach and I thought I'd share a few of my beach bag essentials. I've been looking for a big straw bag that I can stuff full of stuff and recently picked up the one above at T.J. Maxx before we headed South last week.
A few of my essentials....
Zip Close Bag: For storing valuables, iPhone and headphones.Reads & Sunglasses: This is a given!
Turkish Beach Towel: This is a new one for me -- but I love the versatility of these thin, woven blankets. I plan to lay my absorbent towel on top of it and spread out on the sand.
Reusable Water Bottle: For staying hydrated.
Sunscreen: I typically bring SPF30 for my body, SPF 60 for my face (I love this + this) and SPF chapstick (don't forget this - burnt lips are the worst!)Sandals: I usually wear flip flops to the beach, but like to pack sandals for trips to grab lunch or a drink beachside.
Panama Hat: Perfect for shielding your face from the sun and covering up messy beach hair!
