What’s In Your Beach Bag?

June 23, 2017

Here are some essentials to pack in your beach bag or carry-on for your next trip to make sure you’re able to make the most out of every day.

Tote Bag
The first step to deciding what to pack is deciding what to pack it in. Always for Me offers a wide variety of stylish tote bags such as the Anchor Gap tote. It is perfect as an airplane carry-on and as a beach bag with a comfortable shoulder strap and room for all of your travel necessities.

Sun Hat

When you travel to the beach, it’s important to keep yourself protected from the sun which is why Always For Me offers several hats that will protect you from sunburn while still keeping you on-trend. The AFM Bow Sun Hat has a casual yet sophisticated style that is comfortable for anyone and everyone whether lounging in the sun or grabbing a quick lunch.

While flaunting your gorgeous pareo and sun hat, it is still important to be sure any skin exposed to the sun is protected by sunscreen. Generally, any broad spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher is going to keep your skin healthy while soaking up the sun.

Or maybe, the more simple and sleek AFM Semi Sheer Plus Size Pareo White fits your desired look for the day. Either way, AFM has the perfect pareo for you.

A swimsuit is a pretty obvious item to include in your vacation bag, but the real challenge lies in choosing which swimsuits to pack. Always For Me offers a wide range of stylish tankinis, one piece swimsuits, two piece swimsuits and more. Pick a swimsuit that matches your personality, as well as your destination, whether that be a vibrant floral Always For Me Iris Plus Size Swimdress, a chic and timeless Always For Me Control Opulent Wrap Plus Size Tankini, or anything in between.

Wet Swimsuit Bag
Be sure to pack an extra plastic bag or other small bag to store your wet swimsuit so everything else in your tote stays dry when you change into your fashionable pareo or dress for your night out on the town.

A Healthy Snack
Soaking up the sun all day can make you hungry so make sure you toss a healthy snack or two into your beach bag. Trail Mix is a great beach snack and it’s easy to make your own with whatever ingredients you happen to have. Throw together some cashews, pecans, raisins, and a few chocolate chips here and there to satisfy your sweet tooth (feel free to add anything else you have in mind) and you have a great snack to nibble on throughout the day.

It’s no fun when you’re out enjoying the sand in your toes and sun on your face and your phone, iPad or E-reader dies. Make sure you have all your necessary chargers with you to be sure you can keep reading that mystery-thriller or heart-warming romance novel while relishing your time on the beach.

Toss all of these items in your beach bag, and you’re ready to go for a sun and fun-filled vacation!
