Summer Beach Bag, with Kate Spade NY

In a little more than a week I'll be heading off to my "happy place," Hilton Head Island, for a week of fun in the sun. It has been a family tradition for many years now to spend the week of the 4th laying by the beach, riding our bikes throughout Sea Pines, eating dinner in Harbour Town and watching the fireworks off the golf course. Hilton Head is my happy place and where I would go any day of the year. 

While I am counting down the minutes till my flight takes off, I am absolutely dreading the amount of time it's going to take me to pack for this trip. While most people can throw as many bags as they want into a car for the road trip ahead, I am limited to one checked bag and a carry on. It might sound like a lot of packing space to some, but for me it will be a challenging adventure. 

While I'm still mapping out my plan of attack for my actual suitcase, one thing that has been pretty easy to figure out is what to include in my beach bag. I found the ultimate, and I mean ultimate, carry all for a day by the ocean or poolside for those not heading toward the coast. I've featured this gem recently here, here, on my Instagram here and here... I just cannot get enough of this Kate Spade tote. Apparently neither can most bloggers (checkout some other places this bag has been spotted... heremy favorite here, oh and here). It's lightweight, so not too heavy to carry once everything is thrown inside. The bag is made out of a plastic and canvas type material, which will be easy to clean up if it gets wet or sand gets inside. It really is the best bag for a day by the water or in the sand.

While the bag is my absolute favorite thing in my closet right now, it isn't going to keep me dry at the beach, protected from the sunscreen, or provide me with entertainment throughout the day (although it is fun to look at).  That is where my "beach bag essentials" come into play. See some more photos of my summer beach bag below and find out what items are my must haves for a day by the water.
