Summer Beach Essentials

Contributed by:Anna Lee, Vlogger and Salvation Army Thrift Store Creative Expert.

Suns out, the weather has been gracing us with some summer sun so for today’s blog post I thought I share my beach essentials, along with your thrifted fashion looks, for when you’re on the go.

Straw Bag

Since I like to carry a lot of essentials, I always find myself using this large bag everywhere I go. It’s not only very practical for me but any thing that is made of straw or rattan is such a summer staple and trend! 


If you want to have a good time at the beach, it’s always important to carry around sunglasses so that you’ll have an easy time enjoying the view and being protected by the UV rays. 

SPF Lotion

I love using face and body creams that have SPF in it because it will protect your skin from the sun and you’ll prevent premature wrinkles and sunburns! 


Since sand can get everywhere and ruin your shoes, I always recommend wearing sandals that you don’t care about. Chances are you’ll be running around in the sand and water and get a lot of dirt on your sandals! 


If you like capturing memories I always recommend getting a camera that takes film like a Polaroid! It’s fun, cute, and you easily share photo memories with your friends!

Scarf or Towel

And of course if you want to sit on the beach, bring a light scarf or towel to carry around with you. In my case I brought a scarf with me because it was easy and light to take with me! 

And lastly, don’t forget to hydrate and stay cool in the heat. Have a safe and fun summer guys!
