Target Must Haves: Summer Beach Essentials

Summer is the most wonderful time of the year. Sorry all you Christmas lovers but that song definitely got it wrong. I cannot wait to be in Florida on Wednesday. I get to celebrate the 4th of July in the sunshine state with my amazing family. I’m honestly still in awe that I found a flight to Florida for only $97. I absolutely love a good deal and I can proudly confess to you guys that I never shop online without some type of coupon or deal. I just have to thank the money saving Gods for websites like that make it possible to get all my Summer Beach Essentials on sale and get cash back also. Today I’m such an amazing mood not only because I saved money but because I get to see my dad soon and I wanted to share with you guys my Target Must Haves: Summer Beach Essentials. I know everyone has their own ideas of what to carry on the beach and I wanted to share mines with you all to get feedback, swap ideas and also for you all to let me know if I’m forgetting anything. I really hope you guys enjoy my summer beach essentials and you guys I hope you all have an amazing summer.

Cute Swimsuits 

IMG_0217If you’re hitting up the beach this summer you are definitely going to need some cute swimsuits. You definitely do not want to be the only one on the beach not looking summer time fine. Swimsuits come in such a variety that there is one for everyone and one of my favorite places to shop for swimsuits is Target. I know not everyone feels comfortable wearing swimsuits but I love how Target has such a variety for every body type. My belief is to get that swimsuit that you feel comfortable in and the one that you feel you look the best in and this is why I love Target. They have such a variety so you never feel left out. I’m leaving for Florida for a month long vacation next week and when I just knew that I needed to have some new swimsuits. I’m going to be honest and tell you guys that when it comes to my body I am not at all comfortable wearing a swimsuit but when I saw the swimsuits Target had I just had to buy few after reading the amazing reviews people left. I decided to buy three just to mix it up a little bit. The first swimsuit I bought was the cute Merona Women‘s Blocked Halter One Piece. I just love how flattering and slimming this one-piece swimsuits is. The second swimsuit I picked, which I definitely wear with a cover-up is the Mossimo Women‘s Molded Cup Twist Bandeau Bikini Top and the Strappy Bikini Bottom. This one for me is daring but thank God for cover-ups. I just love the color so much though. The third swimsuit I bought, which also happens to be my absolute favorite is the Merona Women‘s Draped One Piece Black Stripe. Unfortunately it’s sold out now but thank goodness I bought it before everyone discovered this gem of a swimsuits. I just love the crisscross design on the front. It’s so fun, cute and also very flattering.

 Beach Umbrella & Chair + Cool Drinks


When you’re going to the beach you also need to be able to relax and be comfortable. This time of the year Target has the cutest beach section. If you haven’t gone to Target yet to check out their beach section then you need to get in your car and get your butt to Target. I wasn’t looking to spend a ton of money on beach accessories/furniture so I went hunting online and in their store for some affordable beach accessories/furniture. When I went into Target I immediately saw their Room Essentials Sand Chair in Turquoise and I feel in love. I literally squealed when I saw that it was only $10. I grabbed that chair so fast that I’m sure the people around me noticed. I also needed a new beach umbrella and I found the cutest and also inexpensive Pink Striped Parasol 7′ Aluminum Collar Tilt Beach Umbrella. I honestly cannot believe I almost forgot to get a cooler. I’m always thirsty and hungry on the beach and I definitely don’t want to have to buy any food and drinks on the way or at the beach. OMG I cannot wait until I’m sitting on the beach in Florida. Vacation you’re so close but yet you feel so far away.

And Don’t Forget These….


The last set of things on my beach essentials are things I think are definitely necessities. I burn easily so I always need my sunscreen. A lot of times I go to the beach alone just to relax and take in the beautiful scenery and I always carry my phone filled with amazing tunes or I just listen to my favorite Spotify playlist or I read my favorite book. Right now I’m reading again Something Blue from one of my favorite authors Emily Griffin. If you guys saw Something Borrowed with the handsome Colin Egglesfield, this book is the sequel and oh boy it is juicy. I also never forget sunglasses because if I’m being honest I love to check out the hot guys on the beach without being to obvious and also sunglasses are such cute beach accessories. Another thing I honestly sometimes forget is a beach towel because a lot of times I just go to the beach to relax and I don’t necessarily go into the water. I know it’s weird but a lot of times I love to just I just get my new favorite Women Straw beach tote pack a book, some water and snacks if I don’t feel like carrying a cooler, my phone, and sunscreen and grab my umbrella and chair I have everything I need for a beach trip. I just love going to the beach. It’s quiet sometimes and it’s the perfect place just to think, read and forget about everything. I just love the summer and going to the beach.
