I don’t need to tell you summer is right around the corner, because you already know. As someone who can’t help but count down the days to summer, knowing that my favorite season is almost here (other than fall, of course!) is SO exciting. I’m taking inventory of what I already have for the summer season, what I’m missing out on, and what I need to replace. Doing this not only gets me organized but also gives me the opportunity to shop without accidentally ordering something I already own. If this is you, today I’m rounding up all of my beach & summer favorites I’m obsessed with so you can replace and update your summer gear before it gets too hot!
Beach & Summer Favorites I’m Obsessed With
3-in-1 Padded Beach Chair
I don’t know what it is about beach chairs but it takes so long to find the right one. Now that I’ve finally found this one, I couldn’t be happier. The extra padding makes it more supportive for long days on the beach and the footrest is perfect for laying down without getting too sandy.
Beach Towel Clip
The days of your beach towel falling down and blowing into the sand are long over thanks to these clips. I always keep extras in my beach bag for friends, too!
Varsity Letter Cosmetic Bag
I have a million of these cosmetics bags, they’re that good! The main one in my beach bag is this SPF one which I (shockingly) use to keep all of our sunscreens organized. I have others for my keys, cards, and cash, and one for travel!
Reusable Ice Cubes
Last summer I swapped out real ice cubes for these reusable ones in our beach bag/cooler and it’s been game-changing! They last so much longer and I love that they don’t water down our cooler. To freeze them, I keep them in a big Tupperware or bowl in our freezer for easy access.
Striped Cooler Bag
I didn’t know it was possible to have a cute cooler until I came across this one and I love it so much. It’s so much easier to carry and isn’t as bulky as the hardshell ones.
Tinted Sunscreen Stick
This is my all-time favorite sunscreen stick! It makes reapplying sunscreen on your face so easy and I love that it’s tinted, giving me a little glow.
After loving the face stick so much, I picked up this mineral sunscreen for my body and it quickly became a favorite! It’s easy to rub in and doesn’t leave a white cast (the worst!). It’s also made without nano zinc oxide and is water resistant.
Since having kids, I have quickly come to love and appreciate an umbrella for the beach. This one is cute, easy to put up, and does a good job at protecting us from the sun.
I know I said I love my canvas cooler but when we’re going to be at the beach all day or with friends, we ALWAYS use this cooler. It fits so much and the pink color is so cute.
Whether you’re at the pool, beach, or traveling, this travel razor needs a spot in your bag! The kit comes with a mini spray bottle for water and a moisturizing bar as well to help avoid razor burn.
Waterproof Tote Bag
If you haven’t gotten a BOGG bag yet, now is the time! These have been the most popular beach bags the last few years and for good reason. Not only are they waterproof but the holes throughout the bag make it SO easy to clean.
If areas of your body chafe, this anti-chafe balm will change your life. Keep them in any and all bags and cars so you have easy access to them!
Woven Straw Visor
If you’re not someone that likes a hat or baseball cap, this straw visor is an easy and chic way to keep the sun out of your face this summer.
If you are a mom, you know the power of this little fan. If you’re not, this fan will change your life. It’s small but powerful and the adjustable arms make it easy to bring it anywhere. I love attaching mine to my beach chair!
Waterproof Phone Pouch
Whether you’re spending time at the beach, by the pool, or on a boat, this waterproof phone pouch is a lifesaver! It also floats so if you drop your phone in the water, you’ll be able to get it back.
Claw Clip Set
What is life without a claw clip? These ones are my favorite; they actually hold my hair and they’re cute.
