Summer time—a time for that well-deserved vacation, a time for relaxation, a time to spend with your friends and loved ones, and of course, the best time to go to the beach!

Now that the warmest season of the year is here, surely everyone is thinking of going to the beach—I know I am. Because, let’s face it, what can be more relaxing than spending a quiet time by the seashore, feeling the breeze on your face, hearing the waves rolling gently into the sand, basking at the sun, while enjoying a drink in your hand. Just the thought of it makes my heart skip a bit with excitement!

So here I am, in my bedroom, packing everything I need before I head out for the ocean. Of course, we don’t want to be at the beach and then realizing that we left our favorite sunglasses at home. That would surely be a disaster! What can I say? I’m a girl with a lot of needs! Ha-Ha!

If you’re packing up your things to spend a day or two of your summer under the sun, make sure that you have everything you need with you. Here are some of the essentials you will need while at the beach:


Diagonal Striped Cross Strap Swimsuit-4Chevron Pattern Bikini-1
Of course, how can you be at the beach without your swimsuit? If you’re going to be spending two or more days at the beach, I strongly suggest bringing at least two—a two-piece bikini and a one-piece swimsuit. Much better if you can bring more. Surely you don’t want to be seen at the beach wearing the same swimsuit for two or more days, right?

Beach Coverup

As I’ve said, it’s all about achieving that perfect summer look and a coverup is definitely a big part of it.

Beach Bag or Tote Bag

Of course most girls will know this but for those who don’t, it’s not just for practical reasons; beach bags are actually part of our overall beach getup. Plus, how else will you carry all your things—your sunglasses, mobile phone, towel, sunscreen, etc. when you’re heading out to the shore?


Flip-flops are definitely essential not just for your feet’s protection, but because they are part of the whole summer look as well.

Floppy Hat

Lettering Accent Floppy Hat-2
I just love going to the beach with my floppy beach hat. It’s not just chic, it will also help protect you from the glare of the sun.


Pointed Edge Half Frame Sunglasses-2
Same with the flip-flops, sunglasses will not only protect you from the glare of the sun, it will also complete your summer getup. I would also recommend bringing several pairs of sunglasses—you know, just in case.



I’m sure one of the reasons why many women go to the beach is to get some tan. So make sure you bring this baby with you for you to be able to get that golden glow. Plus, skin tanning products helps keep our skin moisturized while under the scorching sun.

So if you’re packing for a day or two at the beach, don’t forget these must-haves because without these, you’re stay at the beach wouldn’t be as much glamorous, I guarantee it.
