Eat Drink & Be Mary: Third Times the Charm


Third Times the Charm

I've went to the beach three times this year.  Yup, you read that right.  Three.  A day in my shoes is pretty rough y'all.  And after the third trip to the happiest place on earth I have come up with the winning combination of Beach Essentials [see part I here].  You know what they say...third times the charm.

OneBeach Bag.  This sorta goes without saying, except I just had to share my new beach bag with y'all.  Color me obsessed.  It's pink, monogrammed, and has anchors -- not to mention it could hold anything you could possibly want.   And if anchors aren't your thing it  can come with several other designs including seahorses.  Designs by April definitely knows what they're doing.  #i'mdying

Two | Croakies.  And not just any croakies but these ones from Cotton Snaps.  They are beyond adorable + chevron.  And they're magnetic, so you don't have to mess up your hair that you just spent two hours fixing.  And for those of you who aren't chevron fans, you must be a "merica" fan and this pair of croakies scream 'merica and are calling your name as I'm typing this.  I can hear it myself.

ThreeComfy Tees.  Thomas recently got me this Simply Southern Tee and I'm in love.  With the shirt, that is.  I'm not sure what it is about it that gets to me, but I wore it for two days straight. Okay, okay three days.

Four | A Koozie.  What can I say I'm a sucker for seersucker.  And monograms.  Trust me, a drink in this koozie at the beach just tastes that much better.  Or a koozie that says anything that has to do with blogging, yep I'm about 100% sure it tastes better then too.

FiveBathing Suit Cover Up.  Because you can't just flaunt all you've got just anywhere.  Now a pool or at the beach and it's a-okay to wear the "socially acceptable" version of a bra and undies.  Riddle me that.  Mine was $4 from H&M.  How have I just discovered this store?  

Oh and my current favorite tune?  Feelin' It by Scotty McCreery.  #inlove

What's in your beach bag?  What would you add to my list?  Where is your favorite summer vacation spot?

...oh and ps what the what!  How is it August already?  Where has this year gone!

  1. Oh man I miss the beach so much... It's weird because I wasn't that huge of a fan until I got married and went with Daniel for our first anniversary. (Hadn't been for about 6 years before that and used to go every year.) It's 7 hours from where we are now--but it'll just be about 3 away when we move!! Soo hoping that ends up in a trip at some point--even if it's in the winter! :D

  2. I'm so jealous. I love the beach and haven't been all year! (Okay okay, I was in Ocean City for a conference in May, but that doesn't count because it was too cold to wear a bathing suit) Anyway, now I need a trip to the beach just so I have an excuse to buy one of those adorable beach bags. Also, I love the bloggin Koozie...where did you find that?!?! So glad to have found your blog on That Friday Blog Hop!

  3. Great tips for the beach. Wish I could have gotten our more this summer! We had warm, sunny days, but not good hot days for the beach.

  7. I think this is the first time I saw croakies. Interesting. Seems useful. My beach essential would include a book ;-)

  8. Loving your beach stuff! *googly eyes*

  9. I haven't been to the beach at ALL. Hopefully when I head down to Miami I will get to have some beach time. I adore that bag though! Going to have to snag a bag like that!

  10. I live in Florida, and I haven't even hit the beach yet the summer!
