Beaching it up with the family begins in a mere 2 days and I am anxiously awaiting our trip to one of my favorite places...Rosemary Beach, Florida! Mom and I went there a few years ago for a week long girl's trip and we have wanted an excuse to go back ever since.
Between the gorgeous beachfront homes, the green lawns perfect for afternoon playtime, the famous Sugar Shak for anything sweet, and of course that beautiful white sand and blue water, what more could you ask for? This year, we rented a house that's right next to the beach and I know we are going to have an absolute ball!
I've been packing away, little by little, as not to overwhelm myself or overpack (like I always tend to do), but today I am focusing on all the goodies necessary for Miss Caroline at the beach! She had her first Seaside adventure last year when she was oh so teeny tiny, but I think this year is going to be SO much fun, now that she is walking and will undoubtedly LOVE the water, sand, and sun.
First up, Old Navy flip flops...they are easy on the wallet and will keep those little piggies cool. Next up, a straw beach hat from Gap, which is perfect because it goes with everything. We have one of my favorite pieces we bought this spring-a floral romper from Gap to throw on when we head to lunch or for post-pool fun.
Of course, every girl needs a fun, colorful beach tote to haul all her gear around. Mimi and Pappy bought CC one last year and we use it all the time! We found a similar swim float that I cannot wait to try out...it got great reviews online and it's got a canopy shade to keep Caroline from getting too much sun. Are these bamboo sunglasses not the cutest things ever? Our girl loves to glam it up and keep her eyes protected, too! Last year we tried out the Aveeno brand of baby sunscreen products and I was really impressed...sensitive to the skin, but definitely did their job-we have stocked up on all the items for face, body, and lips to prevent nasty sunburns (I hope). I admit, I went nuts on the swimwear line-up this year for CC, but it's hard not to when they are all SO.STINKING.CUTE. This orange polka dot suit had her name written all over it. Lastly, a fun and festive whale beach towel with her name on it-they are made really well and I love the design!
We also have some fun beach toys packed, our handy dandy baby beach tent, and of course all the stylish beach wear...I can't wait to show off some of Caroline's adorable fashion! Anything I left off??
