Toting Around…

Memorial Day typically kicks off the summer season, and this weekend many of us started our beach and pool routines.  I don’t know about you, but the one thing that sometimes detracts me from driving to the beach, as much as I love it, is all that stuff we have to bring with us. That’s why a few years ago I decided to look for the perfect beach bag, as large as I could find it, to help carry the million bottles of sunscreen, towels, snacks, and everything else I normally carry in my purse.  I also prefer bags that can be thrown in the washer (I’m a big Vera Bradley fan for this reason), or can easily be cleaned.  I’ve had tons of different beach bags in the past, as living in Miami provides us the opportunity to go to the beach a lot during the year, but here is a roundup of some of my favorite beach totes for Summer 2015:

  1. I rarely go to the beach just because I have 6 kids and packing is such a hassle! That said I love all these totes especially the Tommy one. I may need a few though:)


  2. Those totes are just too cute! I love 2 and 6. Those will work well on a beach trip with my toddler. 6 will hold all his junk – toys. And 2 to hold our personal belongings.


  3. I can’t even pick a favorite. I”m loving them all!! If I had to had to had to pick, I’d select the pink and white stripes. 🙂


  4. These are all so cute. I have a few that I favor and one is from Initials company and it is big and so pretty. The other one is a cool tote I got from Best Buy that has so many different compartments in it that it really helps one get organized and stay organized.


  5. All these bags looks so pretty. I really like the pink and white rugby stripe tote and pink and green geometric tote with pockets. I like to have a bag with multiple compartments as I have two little girls and travel with so many items. Will have to check this out.


  6. Those are some really lovely totes. Each one just gives me a sense of the beach and they’re big enough to carry all you’d need to 🙂
