When I found out I was going to be going to the beach for a few days this summer, the first thing my mind went to was “omg I cant wait to put outfits together and pack”. I am one of those people that LOVES to make lists to then check everything off on it. Packing lets me exercise that weird quirk. I decided I would let y’all in on my packing list just incase you’re planning a beach trip of your own!
First off I think on of the most essential parts of my packing list (besides sunscreen of course) is denim. Its almost a crime to go to the beach without your favorite pair of denim shorts. I happened to pack 4, but I tend to be an over packer. Truly though, be sure to put at least one pair of shorts in your suitcase, they’re versatile and can be worn with pretty much anything you bring on vacation with you.
Next up, I would argue is also one of the most important things to bring to the beach is your swim suit. Ever since Victoria’s Secret stopped selling swim suits I kinda didn’t know where to buy one besides Target I guess. They have some pretty great swimmies! To my surprise, I was browsing Amazon and realized they have the CUTEST bikinis and one pieces. Who would have thought?? Personally I have been loving animal prints and warm tones for my swim suits, but I guess whatever makes you feel good is right for you. Here is a visual of the ones I purchased for my trip! I’m especially loving the pink bikini with the tassel accents because its high waisted and full coverage on the bum area. Somehow every swimsuit I buy these days looks like a thong, and i’m not gonna lie it makes me feel a little insecure.
The other item I have seen a lot of people purchasing and absolutely loving is woven beach bags. Naturally I had to get one for myself. I found one on Amazon that was really inexpensive and amazing quality. I plan on placing one of my hair scarfs around the handle for a little extra somethin somethin. Gotta spice it up, and make it girly. This bag is perfect for the beach and holds everything from a book to sunscreen to your beach towel! It’s everything you’ve been wanting and more!!
Of course, you can’t forget all of the miscellaneous items you bring to the beach with you. I’ve decided instead of making this blog post exceptionally long, I would just link everything I am bringing to my Liketoknow.it page so you can shop everything I am packing from one simple place!

I hope you guys have the best summer, let me know what your favorite items to pack for the beach are! I love to read your comments!! Until the next one, peace!
