Like I’ll be at a meeting, planning on Pilates afterwards and forget my sports bra. Soooo annoying. I don’t want to give the guys a peep show so I end up having to head home.
Or some friends will be at the beach & I’ll have everything in my car besides bikini bottoms…ugh, so annoying.
This is why I’ve finally decided to become an adult ( oh, the struggle of growing up) & actually plan ahead with an emergency gym/beach bag.
SO. I’ve shared what’s in all my other bags but never my 911, backseat of the car summer-ish gym/pool bag.
Here we go:
1.| gym jacket: I get cold, guys. Like I’m just a perpetually cold person. I’m that girl who’s complaining I’m freezing while in the jacuzzi. I like my water scolding hot…sooooo a sweater is a must for me. This gym jacket is perfect & it’s navy which I love!
2.| bikini: this one is given. Everyone needs a bikini because you never know. Unless you’re a fan of skinny dipping…which is chill too. This green & black one is super cute & provides support for “the girls.”
3.| white gym tank: I’m obsessed with white. White home, white shoes, white clothes, white teeth. White is my color. So having a cute, white gym tank ( this one’s cute too ) is perfect…especially when I don’t feel like working out. Cute workout clothes make all the difference.
4.| underwear: how many times in my life have I forgotten underwear?! Geez. Or what about this one: you wear granny panties with tight black leggings & forget to switch underwear? Story of my life! Having a couple different kinds of underwear just makes life easier!
5.| cute sandals: I’m loving these skin colored sandals for summer because they’re flattering. Sometimes I feel like strappy sandals can make legs look bigger than then they are…so there’s nothing like a FLATTERING sandal, you know?
6.| light perfume: If I’m at the pool or the beach I don’t want to wear anything too strong or overpowering. This light scent isn’t overwhelming. Like if I were on an elevator, people wouldn’t be dying to get off a floor early. Plus this scent is kind of berry-ish. YUM.
7.| sunglasses: Total given. I can’t even count the times I’ve been in the car & forgotten sunglasses. Ew, I hate that. My sunglasses (another color shade found here ) are my favorite makeup, lol. I don’t have to apply a bunch of sticky cream, I can just throw my sunglasses on for an Audrey Hep look.
8.| snacks: Snacks!!! Almonds, bananas, chia seeds, crackers, etc. Anything to grab on the go goes in my summer bag. You never know when you’re going to be hungry. I’m a DEVIL when I’m hungry.
9.| sports bra: A good sports bra is key. There’s nothing worse than realizing you forgot a sports bra & having to tough through sweating in a Victoria’s Secret push-up. So not cute. I keep it basic in black.
10.| headphones: A little music adds the vibe. I use headphones every day (I even like to talk on the phone through my headphones because I’m weird like that). These ones are in my bag 24/7. LOVE them. Oh! And since I’m a blogger, I carry around this cute white camera. It’s definitely one of my favorites because it’s lightweight & takes amazing pics.
Oh, and of course everything is kept in a lightweight, nautical bag! Just because it makes the whole situation feel that much cuter, ya know?
What’s in your beach/gym bag? Anything I’m missing & going to regret not adding?
