With my upcoming vacation I've come to the realization that I haven't been on a beach vacation since my honeymoon...two years ago!! That's not to say I haven't been to the beach in two years, it's more so I haven't gone away to the beach in that amount of time, so I thought I'd round up a few of my must have beach vacation essentials!
I actually have two beach totes, but the one I'm taking on vacation needed to be compact so it's very similar to this canvas tote. I also have this Target one that I've used for the past five years - it's perfect! Before I even hit the beach, I need to do something about my body being so white - I blame the New England winter! I picked up this Jergen's Natural Glow and I'm going to do a test this weekend to make sure I don't look scary! Of course I need my magazines so my iPad mini is coming with me as are my new sunnies from Nordstrom...you know the $12 ones!!!
I like to keep a water bottle with me because I don't really want to dish out cash for bottled water while on vacation! Also needed is a little pouch to keep my hotel key, phone and ChapStick clear from the sand! Gary basically has the best fedora ever which he actually bought in Puerto Rico, so if I don't snatch this one up before I leave, I have to get an authentic one there!!
