Lately I have been thinking about the going to the beach since summer is here. The last time I sat on the beach was last year July for my birthday weekend and since then I have not had the pleasure of going but that’s about to change. A good friend of mine and I have been thinking of some of the beaches we can hit up this summer before the British weather decides to do what its known for (4 seasons in 1 day). I do not know about you but I usually struggle with what to take to the beach especially if I will be staying for more than a day. Because I want a few items for the day and a couple for the night, I will share some of the items I love to carry during the day and part 2 of this post I will share what I carry for the night out on the beach.
Here is my check list for a great day or weekend at the beach.
- Beach sandals
- Beach hat
- Kindle or a book
Shannon Sandals – Beach Multi – Soft Surroundings
Sandals are an essential beach items and you can never have too many, I for one carry between 2 -3 types just in case I change my mind about the outfits I will wear. Don’t worry I don’t walk with them in the bag I leave in the car once I have made up my mind about what I will carry.
Rogers Palm Beach Flat Sandal – 8.5/Orange/Gold
Cole Haan C 6035 Fashion Sunglasses (Brown)
Now going to the beach without glasses is just wrong, I feel naked without them so I always **always** have two pairs in my bag just in case I need to again change the style, these do not stay in the car they come with me.
