Basically, the only thing that got me through the last few weeks of school was knowing that I was departing for a vacation! The day has FINALLY come to head out for our St. Simmons Island (SSI)/Hilton Head vacation and I couldn’t be more excited. I have never visited SSI and only been to Hilton Head once, so I am really looking forward to experiencing a new places on both islands! Today, I am going to be sharing my beach vacation essentials, including items from United Monograms! I am really excited to be sharing some of their items – everything I received is perfect for the beach or the pool, wherever you are!
The most basic? A beach bag! I absolutely adore this tassel bag for the beach and can’t wait to throw my towel and a good book into it and head into sunshine for the day. The entire bag is so bright and fun (and can fit everything in it!).
I love bringing a variety of swim suits! Does anyone else like to wear a different suit each day at the beach? I picked up a bright neon pink one piece and a fun two piece, both from Target. If I am laying on the beach all day, it’s almost important to keep hydrated (I am notorious for passing out when I get overheated/dehydrated). I love this monogrammed tumbler from United Monograms! It comes with the cutest ribbon (color of your choice) and your custom monogram (available in a ton of styles!).
Another necessity for the beach is scalp protection. Quick story: When I was in high school, I had dysplastic nevi cells removed from my scalp which resulted in multiple bald spots on my head. Because of this, it’s extremely important I protect my scalp from being burned. This year, I will be bringing a monogrammed ball cap and a floppy hat so I can switch back and forth, depending on my suit for the day. I am a little biased, but I urge you to protect your scalp from the sun this summer!
I’m all for cute cover ups (like this beauty I picked up from Target), but most days I just want to throw on a tank and shorts before heading to the beach. These patriotic tanks are going to be perfect for those days. How cute are those sail boats?
Lastly, a weekender bag! I will be taking this weekender tote with me on my trip. It is so roomy (actually huge, lol) and I will definitely be able to fit everything and then some into it.
We are leaving this evening and driving half way to SSI and then doing the other half tomorrow. Be sure to follow along on Instagram to see snippets from my trip and Snapchat (@allyssaamarie) for more fun behind-the-scenes stuff. I hope you all have a great Wednesday!
