- A bag, of course - this one is a "gift with purchase" from Bottega Verde - I like its nautical theme.
- A towel - mine is inside the bag. Noting special, just an orange one.
- A bikini (or any other kind of swimsuit) - hanging on the bag. This is a polka-dotted number by Calzedonia.
- Sunblock(s) - from left: Bilba SPF 15, Ambre Solaire SPF 6, Bottega Verde SPF 20, and a Rilastil lip protecion SPF 40
- A hat - this is a baseball cap I stole from my dad
- Books and/or magazines. I am reading the last from Banana Yoshimoto, and this is the magazine D
- Not shown - a bottle of water. I actually conside this a life essential, not a beach essential.
I try to arrive to the beach very early - it's less crowded and the water is beautiful early in the morning.
