Note to moms: This is not a bag for a day at the beach with the minnies... While they are certainly old enough to carry their own things now, my bag with the minnies would be much larger and sturdy and packed full of all kinds of goodies like carrot, celery, and jicama sticks, water, and a Goldfish or two.
Lilly Pulitzer Elina tunic. This will add a pop of color to your day! Perfect over a swimsuit or paired with shorts, this tunic will keep you covered for lunch by the pool or at the beach.
Mystique seahorse sandals. Not your ordinary sandals, these beauties are perfect for day or evening.
Paley aviator sunglasses from Lilly Pulitzer. I feel so preppy Top Gun in these sunglasses. Love, love, love!
Handwoven seagrass tote with leather handles. The perfect beach tote.
Alice from Summer is a Verb recommended this book a few days ago and I already ordered it from Amazon. It looks like a perfect summer read.
Helioblock 60 sunblock. This is very difficult to find, but is so worth it. Don't be fooled by the Anthelios SPF 15 in stores in the U.S. It's not the same as Helioblock.
This spray water feels so refreshing on a hot and humid day! I spray a little bit on my face and lightly blot if needed. My sunblock stays put, but I feel clean and refreshed.
I always carry a few little ditty bags in my beach bag, too. These are great for holding bathing suits and other damp items. What do you want in your beach bag this summer? Which beach bag are you going to use? If you go to the pool or beach with minnies, do you have a larger or different bag than going solo?
