The warm weather is upon us, and although it is not Memorial Day weekend just yet, Fashionistas everywhere are starting to head out to the beach. In order to fully enjoy a day of soaking in the sun, splashing in the waves and building sand castles, one must carry many essential items to the beach.

Beach essentials often include extra towels, a sweatshirt, extra clothing, an extra swimsuit, sunblock, a Frisbee, sunglasses, a magazine and more. In order to fit all of the fun-in-the-sun items one needs for a day at the beach, a fashion-savvy beach goer must have a proper beach tote!
