12 Last Minute Beach Bag Essentials

I’ve lived by a beach my whole life. But it wasn’t until recently that I considered myself lucky to have the sand and bay right underneath my nose toes. If my day has been particularly stressful, the constant beat of the waves reassures me tomorrows always start fresh. When I’m feeling like I’ve literally got more issues than Vogue, the ocean quiets my secrets and is the perfect soundtrack for me to dish all to my girlfriend! The vastness and never ending horizon is a true source of inspiration and a great reminder in humility. And while that country song about “feeling small against the ocean” is catchy and all, I like to think that standing beside the ocean makes everyone feel powerful, big- a part of something HUGE. You?

But perhaps most importantly {and in attempts to steer this post from feeling like a freakin’ funeral!}, on a beautiful sunny day, the beach is a FREE and easy place to seek refuge from stress and enjoy some serious relaxation. Whether you’re in need of a break from the office or just want to have a random BYOB day with friends, you’ll want to pack these must-haves in your bag! ’Cause you know they’ll aid in a good Instagram or two! ;)

I’m in love with this woven J.Crew Panama Hat- I have it in every style. It’s a great classic to have in your wardrobe. These leopard-like sunnies are everything! Ordering immeditately. And let’s talk about this sweet little pouch for your credit cards and lip balm. No need to rummage at the bottom of your bag with this adorable organizer and it can double as a clutch when you head out for drinks post-beach day! Of course, you can just as easily take these essentials with you to the lake, swimming pool or even the park {a post on our favorite SF parks is forthcoming!!}

As we live out the last days of summer, we’re becoming slightly obsessed with making an escape outdoors for some good weekend r&r! You too?? Well, with that, I’ll see you babes at the beach! —Bianca

  1. I have those sandals AND those sunglasses, and both have made several beach trips with me this year! Also loving my J Crew Maren sandals for the beach…I just did my own post on summer essentials today, natch ;)
