Happy Friday! Living in Southern California, it's no secret that I love spending time at the beach. After all, it's my happy place. The place where I go to hangout, relax, and enjoy the view. I always find spending time at the beach refreshing and rejuvenating. Whether I'm laying out reading a book and enjoying the sun, having a light lunch next to my bestie, or playing a fun game of volleyball, I always make sure to have a few key essentials in my beach bag ready to go. Today, I'm sharing what's in my beach bag, everything I need to have a great time at the beach and what you should be carrying in yours too.

First and foremost, you need a beach bag, this straw tote I found at Target is perfect! It's so roomy and can hold all my essentials + more! Typically, a beach towel or blanket is brought to the beach to lay out. I found mine at a local surf shop that my hubby frequents, but this one here is exactly the same and comes in so many cute colors! Is it really a beach trip without a bathing suit? I have this thing where I only ever buy black ones and this year I'm stepping out on a limb and trying a little color. I found the cutest purple triangle bikini from Adore Me and you can be sure that I'll be wearing it all summer long. As always, whenever I'm outdoors I make sure to keep those sun rays at bay, I use sunscreen with SPF 50 and wear a ball cap and sunnies to keep myself protected from the sun. I love having down time while at the beach. There's nothing like laying out, maybe taking a much needed nap or reading a book to relax. I recently got this book at Target and I can't wait to take it out to the beach with me this weekend. How cute is that cover, right? Lastly, don't forget your water! Staying hydrated is super important, specially when spending all day in the sun.

Anyone else spending some time at the beach this holiday weekend? I hope you have a fun and safe three day weekend. Thank you so much for taking a moment of your day to stop by.
