This post may contain affiliate links. See affiliate disclaimer here.

Whether you are headed to the beach, pool or another summer hot spot, everyone has their essentials that they just can’t live without. My essentials for my beach & pool bag are below!


Clockwise from tote:
Florabella Wilmington Tote \\ Shiseido Sun Protection Lip Treatment \\ Sun Bum 50 SPF Spray \\ No More Tangles Brush \\ Summer Books Reads \\  Classic Rubber Flip Flops \\ Mini LaraBars \\ Ray Ban Aviators \\ Caudalie Skin Mist \\ No Crease Hair Tie \\ Clinique Anti Aging SPF


My Must-Haves:

The bag: I need a bag that will not only fit all of my necessities, but still stay light & cute. I love straw or crochet bags because they weigh almost nothing, are adorable & can be wallet friendly.

SPF: Take care of your skin! Even if you are looking to bronze it up, apply an SPF every 2 hours; you will still get tan, you just won’t get a burn, trust me. Protecting your skin from the sun not only reduces your risk of cancer, but also keeps your skin looking young and taut.

Spray Water: Keep your skin hydrated with a spritz of water!

Water bottle: I don’t have it pictured, but I never leave home without a reusable water bottle. I also bring 1 serving collagen packets for a boost of protein.

Snacks: Just like with my water, I always have a snack packed with me. I love mini Larabars because they are the perfect serving size for a quick snack and are not likely to melt.

Books: I am an avid reader and prefer carrying around a small summer read than relying on my phone (the glare!).

Sunnies: I never leave home without my aviators!

Rubber Flip Flops: I always bring a pair of Old Navy rubber flip flops in my bag for the beach. I don’t want my pretty sandals to get ruined in the sand, and these flops are light and the perfect thing to walk around in!
