The Beach Necessities

Woo hoo, it's SUMMER!
I don't know about you, but it's felt like summer around my hometown for months now. We've already hit the triple digits and we've seen 90+ degree weather since April. But now that it's officially summer, it's time to share my favorite accessories to take down to the beach for a day by the water.

I used to think that all I needed down at the beach was a towel, sunscreen, and a good book.
I have a whole bag full of things now that I love to pack up in the morning before we head out for some time in the sun. Here are some of my favorites:

Cooler: absolutely a necessity. I purchased a new one of these for this summer & I can't wait to use it.
Beach Cup: I received one of these for Christmas this past year and it is perfect for the beach. No more watered down/warm drinks because your ice has melted.
Drink Holder: not only can you monogram it easily, but it's great for holding a drink next to your chair {because the drink holders that come on the chairs never work!}
Bluetooth Speaker: who doesn't love listening to tunes in the sand? We love to play a beach music station on Pandora when we've got this out on the beach with us.
Towel Clips: I didn't know how awesome these were until I had a set for myself. Trust me. Buy them.
Phone Case: my fiancé bought this for me a couple of years ago and it is PERFECT for beach / lake / pool days.
Beach Towel: gotta have one.
Beach Bag: & of course, you need a bag to hold all of your goodies in.

Alright - what am I missing? Do you have a favorite beach accessory that I need to scoop up and add to my collection? Let me know!


  1. Isn't it funny how the older we get the more we need for the beach? Ha! I have those towel clips and love them!

  2. I totally took for granted having my mom pack all of this stuff when I was little! It's so different now that I'm older and have my own family and now that I'm the one in charge haha! I really need to get some of those beach towel clips! And I have a Thirty-One pouch that i use to put all of my little essentials in....chapstick, keys, cash, etc.

  3. I have those same flamingo towel holders and I love them! I bought them years ago and when I pull them out so many people are like why would you need those then later they are like..uh can I borrow one!

  4. Yes to ALL of this! Love that summer is officially here and can we talk about how cute those flamingo towel holders are? Obsessed! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  5. I love the drink holder! I totally could use that at the beach (except the beach we go to doesn't allow alcohol so maybe it wouldn't work). Towel clips are amazing too! No one likes when their towel goes flying off the beach chair!

  6. So many good things here! I love that drink stake and the towel clips! Now I realllly want to go to the beach!

  7. Great things to have on the beach! Can't wait to go back to the beach!! x

  9. I don't think that there's anything more perfect for the beach than a Yeti! Cold drinks are definitely the worst, and you never have to worry about warm beverages with a Yeti! I also love the idea of taking bluetooth speakers with you too!

  10. need ALL of these and omg those towel clips i must find since im going to the beach next week!

  11. Every time I'm at the pool I wish I had some of those towel clips and those flamingoes are the cutest!! Totally getting them :)
