It barely feels like spring, but the official start of summer is only about a month away...AKA the start of a season (hopefully) filled with countless hours spent poolside. And while lazily lounging under the sun is, in itself, pretty easy, there are a lot of affairs to get in order before any beach bum days can commence. 

First, get your hands on an awesome bathing suit. Then, make sure to stock up on sunscreen. Afterwards, it's time to roll out the beach towels. Finished with these essentials? Then how about getting your hands on some great new books to read this summer?

But as we all know, you can't spend a day at the beach with only these items. We need sunglasses and snacks and probably some summer hair products, too. 

Good thing there are plenty of cute beach bags on the market to hold this massive amount of stuff you'll be schlepping around. Click through to see 17 that I highly recommend getting your hands on for summer.
