What to pack in your beach bag? When you’re headed to the beach, there are many things to consider in addition to the weather. For example, how are you going to carry all your stuff? In this guide, I will give you the skinny on beach bags and how to choose one that fits all your must-haves for a day at the beach. Hopefully this can help you avoid making some of the mistakes I made early on when I started my quest for the perfect beach bag!
L.L.Bean Boat and Tote
This summer, the L.L.Bean Boat and Tote is all the rage among the fashion-savvy set. This bag is perfect for days spent lounging by the pool or taking a leisurely stroll on the beach. The canvas material is durable and easily wipes clean, making it ideal for storing wet swimsuits and towels. Plus, the nautical stripes add a touch of preppy chic to any outfit. It has plenty of pockets to store your cell phone, sunglasses, magazines, water bottle and sunscreen too! Available in four colors: blue stripe ($79), navy stripe ($79), red stripe ($79) and khaki stripe ($79).
If you’re looking for something smaller that still holds everything you need, consider the Flip Flop Travel Set from Kate Spade New York. In addition to roomy compartments inside, there are outside pockets where you can stash chapstick and sunblock as well as more hidden pockets behind those zippered closures.
J Crew Woven straw market tote
This is the perfect bag for a day spent lounging on the beach. It's big enough to fit all of your essentials, but not so big that it becomes cumbersome. The woven straw is both eye-catching and practical, and the J Crew logo adds a touch of preppy sophistication. Plus, the natural color goes with everything! Pair this cute piece with a light blue bikini, white shorts, and an oversized straw hat for the ultimate summer look. In addition to being a chic fashionista, I'm also a beach bum at heart. So my next go-to item is sunscreen. If you don't want to lug around your entire arsenal of lotions and potions, just stick with SPF 45 or higher in aerosol form! You can get these little containers anywhere - Walmart, Target, Rite Aid - and they last a long time. And if you really want to take care of your skin while you're on vacation, you should bring some face wipes too. Throw them in the bottom of your bag so they're always there when needed. Oh! And be sure to put any medicines (especially anything containing alcohol) in small bottles or containers before packing them into your suitcase; airport security will confiscate them otherwise!
Mark & Graham X STEELE WATERPROOF TOTE
This bag is not only trendy but also practical. It's big enough to fit all of your beach essentials and then some, plus it has a waterproof lining so you don't have to worry about your things getting wet. And if you get sand in it, no problem! Just hose it off when you get home. No need for any soap or water. Plus the durable design makes this the perfect bag for any type of adventure! It also comes with two extra long shoulder straps for an easy carry-on option. The best part? When you purchase one, they give one to a child in need! (Since 2009, Mark & Graham has donated over 400,000 backpacks and now offers school supplies year round.) For every product sold from their charity collection the company will donate $1 (or more) to their Better Backpack campaign benefiting backpack programs across America. They are committed to providing kids living in poverty with the tools they need to succeed at school and beyond.

Plus, it has a zippered top and multiple pockets, making it easy to keep your things organized.

I love how light weight it is so I don't have to worry about lugging around my heavy purses or backpackswhen I'm carrying baby. You can also take it as an extra day bag to carry everything you need while exploring an amusement park or theme park. Plus, they are water resistant so you don't have to worry about anything getting wet when caught in the rain.

Paravel Large Cabana Tote
I'm obsessed with my Paravel carry-on—it's so chic and fits everything I need for a weekend away. But when it comes to beach bags, I like something a little more spacious (and colorful). My current favorite is the Mark & Graham Dejaroo Bag. It's big enough to fit all my beach essentials, plus a towel and sunscreen, but not so bulky that it's a pain to carry. And the best part? You can get it monogrammed with your initials. So you can leave your bag at home without worrying about someone trying to make off with your stuff. Abercrombie + Fitch Toiletry Bag: When packing up your beach bag, don't forget the basics! All of these items are key for spending a day in the sun. From lotion to shampoo, this travel size toiletry bag has got you covered. Plus it features a classic A&F logo for an old school look we're totally into.
