The Do It All Tote
Not sure what the day has in store but know it’s going to be busy- bring your large Summer carryall. Sturdy handles and plenty of storage are the hallmarks of this style of bag, allowing you to pack everything from a picnic lunch to all your beach or lake essentials. Perfect for farmers market mornings and afternoon sunbathing combined. Never be without your extra swimsuit or snacks, that high SPF sunblock and a sweater for when the evening turns chilly. You’re prepared for it all.
The Feelgood Fringe
When you want to look put together, but a structured bag feels too, well “structured” for a fun in the sun Summer day- grab a woven fringe bag and let your inner sun goddess shine. Perfect for festivals in the park, outdoor concerts, basically anything. Holds just enough- your wallet, phone, keys, gloss. Pair this bag with a Summer dress or cutoffs and a cute top- it looks equally good dressed up or down.
The Basket Case
I love a basket bag, I highlighted this Loeffler Randall one last year and this year I had to buy this cute pom-pom one as soon as I saw it featured in the Halogen x Atlantic Pacific line. It’s SO fun and perfect for colorful Summer beachwear or adding that pop of color to a white Summer dress. Basket bags are perfect for garden parties, bridal or baby showers, Summer weddings, cocktail parties or just fun daytime events. And they are the perfect size for sneaking a champagne split bottle (picnic for one, yes?).
