Beach Day (+ a giveaway)

This past weekend I decided to head to our beach house to enjoy some fun in the sun. Admittedly, it was a little cooler than I would have liked, but when you’re desperate for some sunshine you do whatcha gotta do, right? I instantly felt happier as soon as I saw the ocean and felt the sand beneath my toes. Needless to say, I am anxiously awaiting summer so that I can fully enjoy beach days. 
One of my favorite things to do in the summer is spend my entire day on the beach. In the mornings I pack up everything I will need for the day and head out! The new Lilly Pulitzer collection at Swoozie’s makes beach days that much more chic (and fun!) I brought some of the items along with me this weekend for a sister bonding weekend (those are the best!)
The Lilly Pulitzer Insulated Cooler is a beach day necessity in my book! It is large enough to hold plenty of drinks plus it has a few outer pockets for snacks and sunscreen! 
I have been a big fan of the market bag for a while now. It’s a great size for quick grocery runs, toting around your every day work stuff, or in this case, acting as a beach bag! I decided this weekend that I really like this bag for the beach because it doesn’t collect sand very much! 

This ban.do peekaboo pouch is also a must-have for me! I always have little bags within my bags to keep me organized and the fact that you can see exactly what is in this one is just a bonus!

As soon as the weather warms up I bust out my Jack Rogers. They are one of my favorite classic sandals and they always end up being packed for any warm weather trip I go on!
A new trend I am loving for this spring/summer is high waisted bathing suits. I was so unsure of them at first, but once I tried one on I was sold!!! I have a few already and I can’t wait to wear them this summer….I think it’s safe to say I will have some funky tan lines though! 

OMG! Today I am also giving away a Lilly Pulitzer insulated cooler in Big Flirt Print, Lilly Pulitzer stemless wineglass set & a ban.do koozie to start off your spring! Enter below using the rafflecopter widget for chances to win! The giveaway will run through Sunday March 29th. Best of luck! xx
