Beach Essentials

Hey y'all! I hope you are having a great start to your week! Next week, we are heading to the beach for our family summer vacation and I cannot wait! We will be spending a week on the beautiful beaches of North Carolina. Our ninth wedding anniversary falls during the week we are there so I'm excited to spend it relaxing with our little family! As my girls get older, the beach starts to be slightly more relaxing again, lol.

Today, I'm rounding up eight of my beach essentials that I will be packing up for the trip. I'm also planning to pick up a Turkish towel (have y'all tried one of those?!), snacks, and tons of sunscreen. 

1. Swimsuit | I have this swimsuit and it's my current favorite! It's so mom friendly (full bottom coverage) yet still sassy. I always love a good black suit!

2. Lip Balm | I am generally pretty good about applying sunscreen but I tend to forget to protect my lips. I'm excited to give this lip balm a try. It has amazing reviews!

3. Beach Tote | I just ordered this beach tote and I'm so excited to to use it at the beach next week. I love the simplicity of the design but I plan to add a colorful tassel for a pop of color.

4. Sunglasses | I have been wanting to get a pair of pink sunglasses for awhile now and I think vacation is the perfect time to wear them! It's easier to step out of your comfort zone with strangers and when the sunnies are this affordable!

5. Earrings | I got these fun little earrings in the mail last week and they are perfect! I can't wear heavy earrings so I struggle to find statement earrings that work for me. But these pom poms are so lightweight and only $10!

6. Hat | I have wanted one of these fun straw hats that have witty sayings on them since last summer. I love this out of office one!

7. Sea Salt Spray | I don't go to the beach without a sea salt spray! I never really do my hair while I'm on vacation but I do always spray this amazing sea salt spray in my hair to give my hair some fun texture. It's also less than $5!

8. Pom Pom Coverup | I am currently loving pom poms so this cute coverup immediately caught my eye. The cute pom poms add the perfect touch!

What are your beach essentials?! 

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you have a great day!
