With the summer season just around the corner, I’ve decided to do my “What’s in My Beach Bag?” post today.  I love going to the beach and laying out in the sun all day or grilling out with friends during the summer.  These are some of my essential items that I take with me when I’m heading out for a beach trip.  What are some of your must-have items when you go to the beach?

1) Target – Bright fedora
2) Large beach towel
3) Express – Bold maxi skirt (as a cover-up)
4) Victoria’s Secret – Bikini
5) Victoria’s Secret – Lip gloss with SPF
