What's in my beach bag?

Summer is here! Well, at least it certainly feels like it. And in honor of this breathing weather that were having I'm interrupting our week focusing on color, to prep my beach bag. Summer may not be officially here, but hey, at least I'll be ready. Will you?

OMG!! What a flash from the past!! I'm pretty sure they were at WLCC...not only is that where most of us hung out most of the time, but i also recognize the light fixture in the back ground. Now I'm feeling quite nostalgic!!

Where to Stash Your Beach Stuff



How is it that it only takes us a few seasons to forget how to acclimate to the other seasons??? I always forget how much STUFF that a family of three needs during the summer! From carrying anything from snacks to sun tan lotion, it's important to have the perfect beach tote to ensure that all belongings are accounted for and stylishly being held. Here are a few of my personal faves!



Here's the bag I just bought for the summer. It's called the "Goldie" by Beau Soleil and it's made out of 100% undyed cotton canvas and undyed recycled rope handles! The only downside is that it's on back order until July 15th. I want it now!



LeSportsac is always a brand to rely on! This great-sized, durable "Erika Contrast Tote" looks tough enough to withstand the sand and maybe even a two-year-old!



Talk about a conversation piece. Not only does this Sea Bags Large Surf Tote draw attention for it's cool "SURF" detail, but it's also made out of 100% recycled sails.



Free City is one of my favorite brands because it's made in the U.S.A, and it's also pretty darn cool. I love this casual Life Nature Love Tote for a quick trip to the store or a long day at the beach.



Now here's the way to tote in style. This Pucci Foresta Print Beach Tote is entrancing. No need to fear, it's made of coated canvas to keep it's precious Pucci surface clean and safe!



I love this J. Crew Seaside Tote because it's so versatile. It's neutral enough to work with any outfit (or swimsuit for that matter) and the gold handle adds a nice flair!



No one says sand and surf better than Roxy. This Wild Side Bag in Hot Lava Pink is so fun and I like the fact that is has a closure so no sand comes home with you.
