We all have our go-to beach essentials: sandals, a cool towel, lots of sunscreen, a good read, music and maybe an adult beverage or two. And with all those summertime goods, it can be hard to fit everything you need into one little (or not-so-little) tote. The ultimate beach bag must carry everything you need for safety, style, beauty, sustenance, comfort and entertainment. Now that is no easy task. These 12 #whatsinmybeachbag Instagram posts know how to keep all the essentials contained for a stylish, sandy and sun-safe day.
1. Tropical Style: Just because you’re heading to the beach doesn’t mean you can’t look effortlessly stylish. Rock a tropical-inspired kimono and plenty of wood and shelled-out accessories to fit in with your surroundings. (via @mylittlenotebookblog)
3. Nautical Chic: A chic white peasant dress, tortoise shades and a striped bikini? It doesn’t get much more classic than this. We imagine this gal is headed to the French riviera for some fun in the sun. (via @lindseyherzog)
11. Monogram Everything: Monogram everything is never a bad thing. And with those aviators, gilded sandals and oodles of sun protection, this beach lover is more than ready for some surf and sand. (via @qtpiekelso)
