If you will be spending time at the beach or picnicking, you'll need something to sit on. You can find lots of beach blankets or bamboo mats that roll up. Some of them even have straps; or they roll up tiny enough to fit in your tote bag.
However, we have a better idea. A sarong. A sarong is one of the most utilitarian pieces of clothing out there. Plus, it's pretty. Here are just a few ways you can use a sarong:
- beach/picnic blanket
- shawl or wrap
- table cover for picnics
- swimsuit cover-up
Sarongs come in limitless colors and patterns, and you can find them just about anywhere when you're on vacation. You can easily find instructions on the various ways to tie sarongs online, or in fashion magazines. And, a sarong won't take up too much space in your luggage.
