I'm currently at the beach, enjoying life! I wish all you lovely ladies could be here with me to see this view! Since I'm here and talking about the beach, I wanted to let you in on what's in my beach bag for this year.
These are my "essentials" for a day in the sun!
1// Vera Bradley beach bag. Order yours here. This will hold all your goodies you will need while soaking in that beautiful sun.
2// Beach hat. I have one of these beauties and it is a lifesaver. You can sit and look pretty on the beach all while protecting your face from the sun. Win, win!
3// Sunblock for the face. This goes hand in hand with the hat, but be sure you are protecting your face good. Most women use make-up on a daily basis and may skip while on the beach. This leaves your skin very exposed and under-protected. Be sure to re-apply this often for best protection.
4// Tanning Oil. I have always loved getting that good bronzed tan look and this tanning oil has been on my favorites list for years. However, this year I will be taking it easy with the tanning. I just turned 30 and I think I've started to really get worried about the harm I'm putting on my skin with too much sun exposure. However, I still want to include this on my list because I will be rocking it, just limited.
5// Nike Flip Flops. You have to have a great pair of flops to wear until you reach the sand. Let's face it, that boardwalk is HOT and we need to protect those feet. I love my Nike's that Brian got me a few weeks ago, so I am excited to get to spend some quality time with them this year at the beach.
6// Sunglasses. Everyone has their own brand they prefer, but I'm a cheap-o kind of girl, especially for beach wear. Don't forget these beauties and PROTECT those eyes!
7// Beach towel. I must admit that I own way more of these than any normal person should BUT I love a good beach towel. Add some monogramming to it and it gets even better.
