Today’s post is a little bit different as I am giving you a glimpse inside of my pool/beach bag. 🙂
We are already starting to get into mid-july and the days are getting hotter and hotter. I’m not complaining though after that brutally cold winter we just had! However, I definitely always look for ways to stay both refreshed & stylish during these summer months. Whenever I go to the pool or the beach, I do my best to pack as many essentials as possible to keep me staying cool in heat.
First, it’s all in how you dress. When I’m not swimming (or shall I say doing the doggy paddle) or laying out in the sun, I like to wear a little something over my bathing suit. A thin cover up dress like this one always does the trick. It’s loose fitted so it doesn’t make me too hot. I typically go with a simple pair of flip flops, so that my feet can breathe as much as possible. Sometimes strappy sandals are too much for me. I never leave home without my sunglasses and I love bringing a big floppy hat in case I want to let my hair down.
When it comes to packing up my bag, I try to include as much as possible to get me through the day. I didn’t photograph every single thing, but for the most part these are my poolside essentials.
So here’s a peek inside my bag:
Always sunscreen (of course), I love both the spray bottle and this all day moisturizer with SPF. I like bringing both options, just in case. Either one is very cooling on the skin. I just recently added these oil absorbing sheets to my list of must-haves when on the go. They are such a quick way to refresh your face from excess oil and shine. I’m basically addicted to lip balm, but when I’m out by the pool or on the beach, I make to sure pack one with SPF. It keeps my lips both moisturized and protected from the sun. Of course for me, an ice cold caffeinated beverage is a must! I’ve been pretty addicted to
Bottled Starbucks® Iced Coffeelately, so it’s become my outdoor beverage of choice. I finally got to try the Vanilla flavor too. So refreshing, so good.
I never leave home without my deodorant, specifically invisible solid with a scent. I swear I always feel like a new person every time I apply it. I’ve also been bringing along this roll on perfume to freshen me up from being outside. It’s a quick and easy fix. A few other pool bag essentials for me are tic tacs, hair ties, headphones, and of course, my iPhone!
