Summer 2018 Beach Bag Essentials List

My Summer 2018 Beach Bag Essentials List is pretty basic- you need a good kimono, some heavy duty lipstick, a high quality mineral bronzing spray, a good pair of Statement Earrings, and of course, fashion magazines and an adorable straw tote!

SHOP | Stella & Dot:Earrings (under $45) // Straw Bag (under $75) // Kimono // Lipstick (or get my favorite trio set HERE– 3 colors for $20!) // Bronzing Sunscreen // Plush White Fur Rug (2’x6′ or 2’x3′)

1. A good statement earring and kimono is a must- These statement earrings from Stella & Dot will not disappoint! Hand beaded geometric shapes playfully create the perfect pop of color. They feature a Shiny Gold Finish, have a 2 ½”, Statement Weight and Titanium Ear Posts.

2. The kimono linked above is another favorite from Nordstrom, Featuring a silky finish and bright floral print. This ultra-versatile kimono can be tossed over any outfit to make it instantly more stylish!

3. This Bronzing Mineral Sunscreen is from my beloved Target- It’s an all natural opaque mineral bronzing sunscreen with SPF 30 and is infused with probiotics and caffeine to keep your skin healthy and tight while protecting it. It’s free of chemical UV absorbers and is water resistant for up to 80 minutes! It’s balanced formula makes it easy to apply evenly and it’s a non-propellant continuous spray. It’s also 100% vegan & cruelty-free!

4. A pouf/pouch to keep all of your important small items (cash, credit cards, lipstick, chapstick, etc) from getting lost in your tote! Here are a few of my favorites:

Stella & Dot // Photo Floral Pouf

Stella & Dot // Embroidered Lashes Mini Pouch

Stella & Dot // Black/Cream Stripe Pouf

There are so many more prints/styles to choose from! You can shop/browse them all HERE
