A Peek Inside My Pool Bag





{Beach Bag: Old Navy (similar here) / Cover Up: Old Navy / Flip Flops: Havaianas}

Happy Friday! 
 Today's post is a little bit different as I am giving you a glimpse inside of my pool/beach bag. :) 
We are already starting to get into mid-july and the days are getting hotter and hotter.  I'm not complaining though after that brutally cold winter we just had!  However, I definitely always look for ways to stay both refreshed & stylish during these summer months.  Whenever I go to the pool or the beach, I do my best to pack as many essentials as possible to keep me staying cool in heat. 

 First, it's all in how you dress. When I'm not swimming (or shall I say doing the doggy paddle) or laying out in the sun, I like to wear a little something over my bathing suit.  A thin cover up dress like this one always does the trick.  It's loose fitted so it doesn't make me too hot.  I typically go with a simple pair of flip flops, so that my feet can breathe as much as possible.  Sometimes strappy sandals are too much for me.  I never leave home without my sunglasses and I love bringing a big floppy hat in case I want to let my hair down. 

When it comes to packing up my bag, I try to include as much as possible to get me through the day.  I didn't photograph every single thing, but for the most part these are my poolside essentials. 
 So here's a peek inside my bag:



Always sunscreen (of course), I love both the spray bottle and this all day moisturizer with SPF.  I like bringing both options, just in case.  Either one is very cooling on the skin. I just recently added these oil absorbing sheets to my list of must-haves when on the go.  They are such a quick way to refresh your face from excess oil and shine.   I'm basically addicted to lip balm, but when I'm out by the pool or on the beach, I make to sure pack one with SPF.  It keeps my lips both moisturized and protected from the sun.  Of course for me, an ice cold caffeinated beverage is a must!  I've been pretty addicted to 
Bottled Starbucks® Iced Coffee lately, so it's become my outdoor beverage of choice.  I finally got to try the Vanilla flavor too.  So refreshing, so good.



I never leave home without my deodorant, specifically invisible solid with a scent.  I swear I always feel like a new person every time I apply it. I've also been bringing along this roll on perfume to freshen me up from being outside.  It's a quick and easy fix.  A few other pool bag essentials for me are tic tacs, hair ties, headphones, and of course, my iPhone! 

Happiest of weekends loves <3
