For as long as I can remember I've always thrilled at packing a beach bag.  From my childhood summers spent poolside with my family to current weekends enjoyed at the beach, my love for summer frivolity hasn't changed.  What you'll find in my beach bag, however has come a long way.

While it's never been hard to find a beach bag I love, it's sometimes a challenge to find that cute bag that also loves the beach.  Problem solved thanks to Kate Spade.  This Francis Tote is not only adorable but extremely sun and sand friendly as well.  Both see through and waterproof, this bow adorned beauty makes lost times and stains and spills a thing of the past.

So, here are the must-have items I'll be tossing in my bag all summer long…

1. sunnies 

 2. Missoni bikini {on sale!}

  3. Supergoop sunscreen  

4. straw fedora 

 5. beach towel

  6. WEN replenishing mist 

 7. Living in Style by Rachel Zoe 

 8. YSL rouge volupte

 9. wide tooth comb

 10. Kate Spade waterproof cosmetics case

 11. water 

 12.  Tory Burch flip flops  

13. Tory Burch beach cover up

Get yours before they're gone and enjoy a wonderful weekend!
