What’s in the Bag

Tote Bag

We love this new canvas tote with aqua stripes. It has enough room for her swimsuit, towel, change of clothes, and everything you see here. By Thirty One Gifts, where you can get it embroidered, too.

LOVE Bracelet

This gold jewelry piece is simple and oh-so-sweet. It’s the perfect everyday bracelet she can wear to the beach — and beyond. By Ava Hope Designs.

Embroidered Towels

She can lay out in style on her own personalized beach towel. These are by Memento.

Bridesmaid Sunglasses

These fun bridesmaid sunglasses can be worn on the beach + at the wedding! Spotted here.

Flip Flops

These aren’t just ANY old flip flops. They have custom sayings that leave your mark in the sand! Our fave for this bag? “Follow me, bring wine”. There are more available, too! By Sand Imprint Sandals.

Floppy Sun Hat

I’m ordering this one stat. If you need a floppy hat (I mean, really, who doesn’t?) then this is one that’s inexpensive AND adorable. Spotted here.

Beauty Products

Fill a wristlet (we spotted the one shown from Thirty One Gifts) with some favorite beauty products, like nail polish, a stick of sunblock, waterproof mascara (this one is from Pürminerals), and her all-in-one makeup solution in a compact form (also from PürMinerals.com). The lip balm is ultra-nourishing and essential because, hot pink. From Maybelline.

Book to Read

And, last but not least, throw in a book she can read on the beach. I recommend Yes Please, but that’s because Amy Poehler is my spirit animal. Yours might be Tina Fey, in which case this would be an awesome choice. Or Mindy Kaling’s book which was so funny I laughed out loud (and I was sort of bummed when I finished reading it). Another favorite? This book by Ellen Degeneres. Pick any book she’d like (but we recommend something funny and entertaining). I mean, a dramatic book is just a little too serious for a relaxing bach weekend, ya know?

She’ll L O V E this gift. Promise. I know I would!

Yellow Bridesmaid Clutch with Polka Dots

Hi, loves! Have you popped in to Allisa Jacobs‘ shop lately? It’s making me very impatient for spring, especially because it’s only been winter “officially” for… what, two weeks? Yikes. Regardless, these pretty pops of color–like this yellow polka dot clutch in citron, to be exact–is a refreshing thing to see after waking to find lots of snow on the ground this morning.

Yellow Bridesmaid Clutch with Pretty Polka Dots

This yellow polka dot clutch is perfect for your spring wedding! Summer, too. Ah, summer… what is that like again? I’m starting to forget.
