With summer in full swing, it’s time to go visit the beach! Funny story, went last week for a beach bbq and was in charge of bringing the grill. Turns out the only one I had was an old school charcoal grill we could not get to start, and ended up having to go to a friend’s place to cook instead. Anyways, I always bring the same essentials in my beach bag. For swimwear, stripes are very popular right now, as are floppy hats so I’ve linked some cute options below for you. Also, sunscreen is a must to protect yourself from UV rays so don’t forget that! I like to bring a good novel or notebook as well to pass the time.
