What to Pack for a Summer Beach Weekend

Summer is in full swing for most but here in Georgia, we are about three weeks from starting school. This means I have to get a couple of last minute beach trips in before school starts. We love heading to the beach for a night or two and I love being able to just grab a few of my favorite things to be ready to go. We are sharing this What to Pack for a Summer Beach Weekend post as part of our partnership with Marks & Spencer.

Marks & Spencer has everything that you need to completely outfit your family in beach clothes for the perfect rip and beyond.

Marks & Spencer Bright Sand Resist Beach Towel

The Marks & Spencer Bright Sand Resist Beach Towel is perfect for a sand free day at the beach or hanging out by the pool. The exclusively designed weave on the reverse of this towel has been cleverly constructed to resist sand so that you and your bag can stay sand free. This towel is also lighter weight, compact to pack and quicker to dry. This towel can easily be packed up and taken anywhere.

These M&S COLLECTION Palm Leaf Print Hipster Bikini Bottoms (SOLD OUT; find similar here) will flatter the figure fabulously and look amazing in this black & white palm leaf print. Pairs perfectly with the M&S COLLECTION Secret Slimming™ Palm Print Tankini Top (SOLD OUT; find similar here). This tankini is more flattering than a bikini but more practical than a one-piece swimsuit. I love this tankini top.

These M&S COLLECTION Palm Tree Print Tapered Leg Trousers (SOLD OUT; find similar here) are beach trousers that are light, comfortable and a great way to cover-up on hotter days. These pants feature a tapered leg and fall right at the ankles. (red shirt size medium; white shirt size small). These women's beach pants are so incredibly comfortable that I want to wear them every single day. In fact, my daughter wears hers almost daily.

This here comes in this fabulously comfortable Chambray. I wore this on an evening out and felt stylish while wearing a swimsuit underneath. Just because I am at the beach doesn't mean that I want to compromise my style and this beach dress is the perfect option.
