Pool Bag Essentials

Monday, May 25, 2015

Happy Memorial Day! I hope everyone had a safe and long holiday weekend. I want to take the time to  thank those who have served our country for allowing us to have freedom. 

This past Saturday was the opening weekend for the pool that we are members at, so I was thankful to get out there for the first time this season. I carefully packed by bag accordingly to be sure I didn't forget anything! 

These are my 10 Pool Bag Must-Haves:

Beach Bag/Tote
I got this bag at the Lilly for Target shenanigans, and it is the perfect bag to carry to either the pool or the beach. It is big enough to carry all of my essentials. Obviously, this specific bag is sold out, but any bag or tote will do!

I also snagged this towel at the same time I got the bag, and is sold out, but any large towel will do. I like large towels so it covers the entire chair.

Bathing Suit
This is one of my new favorite bathing suits because of the fit. The top is from Target, and the high waisted bottoms are from Old Navy

I recently found this coverup at Old Navy on sale, and it is the perfect length for the pool. It is flowy and not too tight to wear over my bathing suit.

 Lip Balm
I am a total lip junkie, and this moisture plus lip balm is perfect for being out in the sun. It has SPF 15 and does an excellent job of protecting my lips from getting chapped and exposed to the sun. 

Sun Screen
I'm not going to lie, when I was a teenager and in college, I was not a big proponent of sunscreen. As I get older and as my skin changes, I am a huge advocate of protecting my aging skin. I use this to protect my face and love it! 

Any type of sunglasses will do the trick, but it is very important to protect your eyes while in the sun. I have had my polarized Ray Ban aviators for years now, but you can find them here

Hydro Flask Water Bottle
This water bottle is one of my favorites. I can literally fill it up with ice when I leave the house, and it will not melt. I typically fill it up 5 or 6 times while I am at the pool because staying hydrated while in the sun is so important. 

I don't get the chance to read much at home because there are always other things going on, so this is always a perfect opportunity to catch up on the latest gossip or summer read.

These aren't pictured, but sometimes finding the perfect pair of sandals can be hard, but Tory Burch never fails me. 

I am so glad that this is a short week because I am already ready for the weekend! I hope y'all have a great week! 



  1. Love your pool bag! & I miss pool/beach days with you!

  2. I have the same sunglasses! Love them! I also love to listen to some good music by the pool so I often pack headphones :)

  3. if I was not preggers, I would be all over those bottoms!!!!

  4. I love your pool bag - it's so bright and fun! I'm all about a spray sun screen - not as messy! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston
