How to Pack a Perfect Beach Bag

Hope you all have some fun weekend plans lined up. I was going to head back to the Hamptons this weekend but I opted to stay in the city. I have some party planning to attend to for July! Can't wait to share more details on that.. Anywho, today I'm sharing what's in my beach bag. With summer in full swing, I try to keep my beach bag game strong. Whenever I travel, I try to keep the major summer necessities on me at all times. You never know when the sun is going to hit! There are 8 various items I keep on me at all times.

Whats-In-My-Beach-Bag

First, an oversized beach bag is a must. I particularly have multiple straw bags like this one. How cute are the colorful pom poms? I also came across the We Are Poolside Collection last weekend in Montauk and have my eye on multiple. My second must-have beach bag necessity is a good sunscreen or tinted moisturizer. I have been wearing Laura Mercier's tinted moisturizer for a few years now and especially love it after a day in the sun as it helps achieve that natural glow. An oversized button up shirt is great for when you need something to throw on when walking around town. Shorts (love these striped ones from J.Crew), sunnies and a sun hat are all beach bag no brainers. You can shop all of my favorite beach bag necessities below. Happy Beaching! Xo. Lauren
