Beach Bag Essentials | Vacation

beach essentials j.crew flip flops kindle fire iphone

I honestly get bored very easily at the beach. I can’t do the nine-hours-a-day, nothing-but-sitting-there thing. It’s very important that I have a lot of books (with a fully charged book battery) and an iPhone to keep me occupied. And if there are jellyfish in the ocean, then I need the extra phone battery, too.

Here are my beach bag essentials–

The bag: Longchamp Le Pliage Large in Sunshine. This is the old style from 2008 with long handles. The new style is currently on sale at Nordstrom for under $100, down from $145.

The contents: J.Crew Style Guide and Printed backup battery for iPhone 3G/4/4S (on sale for $29.99 and an extra 40% off), iPhone, Kindle Fire HD, and lightweight dress. This one’s pure + good from Anthropologie and no longer available, but this similar striped dress is nice.

    Thanks so much for your comment, it means a lot!
    I know, just sitting and staring is just too boring! I love sleeping on the beach though, covered in towels against getting a sun burn!

    Have a fantastic week,

    I can relate – all day at the beach is a very long time! A big umbrella and lots of reading material is key – especially since I probably wont spend more than 20 minutes actually in the water.
