Fashionable Family Beach Essentials

Grand Cayman

HI Ya’ll! I am rounding up some great Fashionable Family Beach Essentials for the Family Today!

How many of you are ready for a beach getaway or just plain ready for summer?  I know I am!  I can’t wait to set up my beach chair, put my toes in the sand, watch my kids build sand castles and collect sea shells.  Since we live an hour from Galveston beach we become total beach bums all summer long. P.S. This is a picture of the Grand Cayman…NOT Galveston! For those of you who haven’t been to Galveston, the water is brown and there tends to be a lot of seaweed. We are on what’s known as the “dirty side” of the Gulf.

Taking kids to the beach is a whole ‘nother ball game compared to only worrying about yourself.  I think I heard a collective mom sigh as we all reminisced about the good old days of only taking a towel and small cooler to the beach, rubbing on our tanning oil and laying out for 10 hours sipping on a beverage with not a care in the world. Ahhhhh! Ok, I am snapping out of my day dream and getting down to the real beach essentials!

I have rounded up some fashionable, but family friendly beach must haves, so you and your family can splash in the waves while looking H.O.T, all while staying comfortable and safe from the sun!

OK Ya’ll, YOU NEED THIS TOTE!!! Let me reapeat…BUY THIS TOTE NOW! They sell out every year so that says something about the complete awesomeness of this beach/pool bag. Be sure to get the XL size. You have the option of a zip top closure or open top closure. Everyone in our neighborhood has this tote with our last names embroidered on it. I can fit 4 towels, pool toys, swimsuits, coverups, snacks, drinks, sunscreen,, wipes, swim diapers, shoes, pool card, etc all in this tote. It has a small inside pocket and large pocket that runs along the inside as well as an outside pocked on the front. It comes in so many fun summer colors and makes a great gift too. GET YOUR TOTE NOW!!!!

    Sara you are making me drool over here! I can’t remember the last time I went to the beach let alone by myself! Loving these coverups. I will definitely be getting one of these after baby is born cuz you know ain’t nobody want to see what’s happening underneath! Thanks for the great resources!

      You crack me up Tessa! If it makes you feel better I was obviously suffering from child number two and sleep deprivation and took a two month old and a 2 year old on a week long beach vacation. CRAZY!

    I love your blog and this another fab post. I totally agree with the LE Tote love mine. Don’t put in in the wash, it survived but not as great, might order another! Have fun at the beach.

    Land’s End totes are where its at, I LOVE them all!! We have a beach vacation coming up, and every year it is more and more fun as my son gets older! He went from not liking the sand, to being super interested and this year I am sure he will be swimming around in the ocean! Great share!~

      I’m loving the beach more as mine get older too! They love the water and digging deep sand holes.

      I have that bright blue bikini and you can tie it to be strapless too. Its one of my favorites and comes in about 4-5 colors.

    Great picks and suggestions!

    I can’t wait for beach days (although dreading packing all the stuff needed for a toddler and infant). It’s been a long winter and I can’t wait to bask in the sun.

      I hear you Amber! Packing for two littles to go to the beach is basically like moving! That’s why I love the Lands End tote. It carries EVERYTHING!

    • soberton33 says

      I want to go to the beach too Kelsey! Hopefully when Tball season is over we will make it down to the coast!

      Isn’t it the best Coco! I used the smaller version as a diaper bag and loved it.
