What's in our Beach Bag

A favorite summer activity and an essential escape for New Yorker's in this heat, a day trip to the beach requires a well-packed beach tote. Here's what we keep in ours...

Raffia Tote -

Our beach bag of choice! We are obsessed with the effortless woven raffia look and this bag is the perfect carry-all tote that keeps wet towels and bathing suits aired out at the end of the day.

Malia Fan -

This fan goes seamlessly with the Raffia Tote and is just as practical on days where the sun is strong and the breeze is lacking. Keep cool and look cute!

Water bottle -

It is so important to stay hydrated while out in the sun for hours. Bring a reusable water bottle and fill it up at a water fountain if you have access to one.

Sunscreen -

Need we say more? Everyone should have a 30+ SPF in their beach bags and reapply when needed. Important words to look for when picking out a sunscreen are "broad spectrum" and "UVA and UVB protection".

Extra bag -

An extra bag can be useful to separate food or wet bathing suits from the rest of your belongings. Our Modern Market Tote easily fits inside and doesn't take up too much space.

Makeup -

Sometime's it's nice to freshen up as the beach day comes to a close. We suggest including a tinted moisturizer with SPF, waterproof mascara, eyebrow comb, and a tinted lip balm. This Marcelle City Tinted Cream is a personal favorite, it's very light on the skin and gives a healthy glow that lasts throughout the whole day.
