Water! I think that's a given but I never forget to stay hydrated if I am going to be in the sun. I use a
Snacks: I always have snacks with me. Maybe it's the nanny in me? I don't want to be starving or searching for food. I love these Annie's fruit snacks or a granola bar
Sunscreen: Number 1 thing! I put on moisturizer with sunscreen every morning, rain or shine! When I go to the beach or pool I use the Neutragena UltraSheer dry touch sunblock because it isn't greasy, doesn't make me break out, and just feels good on my face. I am looking for a new sunscreen for my body though. I would prefer something with a low number on the EWG site if possible (they haven't released the 2013 results yet). SPF 30 or 45. Any recommendations?

Ipod (or iphone) for music
Hat: I have a Marley Lilly monogrammed baseball hat
Cute coverup: I have several coverups. I have a striped one from Vineyard Vines that is my go to. I love this Vineyard Vines whale tail tunic

I also bring my wet swimsuit bag if I am going to be in the water at all
What's in your beach bag? What should I add to mine?
