What's In My Bag : Beach Edition

Wednesday, May 29, 2019

Today's post is about everything I keep in my beach bag! I try to bring everything I need all at once so I don't have to make a bunch of trips out- especially with Liam. Obviously I keep extra stuff in there for him (diapers, wipes, snacks, etc) but this is mainly for just basic beach knick knacks and tricks!

Pool Slides:

These were from J Crew last year omg they sold out SO QUICK. But they did come out with a very similar pair this year too. Get them here.

My Beach Bag:

I actually found this one at Belk this year! I wish I would've found a nice big one like this years ago, but I am obsessed. I love the palm print and it has pockets on the outside for other things too. Since I am stuck carrying stuff for Liam, Caleb, and I it's so much easier to pile it all in one bag!


I have always loved the smell of Sun Bum! I got the Baby Bum version for Liam ( it has no smell) and I personally think it works great. We use Babyganics too at home for him as well. They are a thicker sunscreen so I feel like they work better than others I have tried! This Neutrogena I have used on my face for a loooooong time. It's lightweight and doesn't cause me to breakout.

Beach Towels:

I've shared our towels on stories recently and they are SO GOOD. Super thick and soft but also SUPER cheap. It's hard to find cute towels that don't cost an arm and a leg and these were on sale at Belk!! UNDER $10!!! And they come in a bunch of really cute prints!


Obviously I have to bring my sunglasses to the beach! Here are some of my favorites I've been wearing!

Summer Reads:

I used to love reading books on the beach! I haven't really gotten to much this trip because I have my hands full with Liam on the beach- but I have been trying to read some while he naps. Here are some of the ones I am going to finish this Summer!
