Packing for the Beach
Last week you saw my FabFitFun bag reveal. I showed you one picture of everything in that bag and then got talking about skin care and beach waves. But I never covered the big items in that bag. The biggest being the Vitamin Sea Beach Bag. I didn't want to just show you a picture of the bag and that be it. I wanted to show that bag in use, while I'm headed to the beach. Because for the first time in my life I live near water! Humidity and I are best friends and I am happy to explore my new little world. But first let's get packing!
Beach Essentials according to me
(a non-beach person)
First thing up, is a bathing suit. No bikini yet for this body. Maybe one day my confidence will have grown to allow for one. For now I prefer ruffles and little skirts, that fit tightly around the boobs and don't cause me to freak out about pop outs.
This bathing suit I bought for Cuba, so it's about a year and a half old. It's worn well and it meets all my needs!
After beach time you need something cozy and comfy to drive home in. So a maxi dress is the perfect addition to any beach bag. Of course I don't have any pictures of me in said maxi dress. But I liked how it flowed in this picture, so that's what you get for today. It's light cotton, flowy, sleeveless, and most importantly comfy. I'll have a picture of me in the dress on Friday!!
Besides swimming the next best thing on the beach is journaling and reading. I tend to bring more than one of each.
Be sure to tell me in the comment, what your favorite beach read is? I am always looking for new things to read!
And lastly we've got a few key items to finish our trip. Water bottle, kleenex, SPF, pen, lipgloss, protein bar, a small bag to store the little stuff, and a "Dream Big" beach towel.
Notice a theme here?? Everything is black or orange. I tend to only own black clothes and the bag just came in orange. One happens to be Kevins favorite color.
What are your beach essentials?? And am I missing anything?
