The 2018 Spring Break season has officially commenced in Destin! Our quiet winter days are gone and the roads and beaches will soon be filled with college kids and families hoping to catch a glimpse of the Gulf of Mexico (not the ocean) and soak up the sun.
I love when our area is filled with tourists. Sure- the roads, stores, and beaches are more crowded and restaurants have ridiculous wait times, but tourism is our lifeline here and so many of my friends and family benefit big time. I say bring it on!
I’m thrilled to share with you my Spring Break beach bag essentials plus an amazing giveaway!
Believe me, I’ve searched high and low for bags that are good for the beach. I need a bag that is easy to clean, can hold a ton, stand up to sand and water (and three kids), all while looking good!
Enter the Pocket Rocket by Scout! I found mine at Fisher’s Pharmacy in DeFuniak Springs, FL (just north of Destin) and it couldn’t be more perfect for the beach and pool. The bag boasts SIX exterior pockets, which are perfect for everything from water bottles to sunscreen to sippy cups. I love the easy-to-wipe all-weather woven fabric AND it zips closed. Glory!
The Pocket Rocket comes in nearly 20 patterns and easily fits all your beach necessities! Speaking of beach bag necessities, here are mine:
I absolutely love the pop of color these Maui Jim Sunrise Mavericks give me at the beach and I always get plenty of compliments! I found mine locally at Sunglass World at Destin Commons, but you can also shop online.
I absolutely must have a hat for a day in the sun. I found this floppy fedora on Amazon before our cruise last summer and it’s quickly become my favorite. I might even order another color for this beach season!
Living in Destin, I have a closet full of beach towels. My new favorite is this fabulous micofiber towel/blanket that my cute friends at Frill Seekers monogrammed for me. It’s lightweight and HUGE! Perfect as a towel or picnic blanket for the playground or ball park.
Scout has other great bags that I like to bring along. Packin’ Heat is technically a makeup bag, but it’s lined on the inside and perfect for storing phone and keys or wet swim suits.
The Pleasure Chest is too much fun! It’s a collapsible cooler bag that can hold a six-pack or four bottles of wine. Yes, please! Again, I found mine at Fisher’s because they have the best selection of Scout bags in the area (as well as other adorable gifts for home, kids, and baby).
I am absolutely thrilled, because I’m teaming up with Fisher’s Pharmacy to give away THREE amazing Scout bags to ONE lucky winner! One reader will receive the Pocket Rocket, Packin’ Heat, and Pleasure Chest pictured in this post! The Deano in the last photo is mine.
